After years of wanting a TI-99/4A, finally bite the bullet and got one from eBay.
The pictures looked great and the seller stated clearly that it worked, so I bought it, I typically use a carrier service to bring things from USA to Mexico, so I cannot return anything. Anyway the vendor reputation was high enough.
Unfortunately after receiving it and unpacking it anxiously I discovered it wouldn't show anything in my TV.
I thought the RF box was failing, so I went to test directly from the connector using a RCA jack, and to not avail, so I opened it and everything looks fine but there isn't any video synchro in the VDP.
Still the VDP isn't discarded as I need to check the oscillator and other few things.
But anyway, here are some pictures.
I've ordered also a FinalGROM99 for loading cartridge images it should come anyday.
