I got a Colecovision through the door from the US (I live in the UK). I plugged it in via a UK adaptor, and ... nothing. The power supply must be dead. I kept it plugged in for a while and it didn't heat up, which seems pretty ominous. I'm just wondering - is there anyone else here that uses a US Colecovision in Britain? Better still... has anyone else got a spare power supply??

You can rebuild the power supplies. It's highly likely that the caps have gone bad or even the 7905 is bad.
