Hi, remember me? Months back I picked up a super junky Colecovision that would only sometimes power on, and got to the point where it was not powering on at all. It would send a black screen (which would lose sync), but things like the SGM or the wafer drive would never show power in this condition.
So I picked up a new system. Great price, possibly the cleanest Colecovision I have ever seen. Great score, right? Got to play it loads last night.
Aaaaaaaand now tonight I am getting the same lack of powering on.
I have no idea what to think here, but I welcome theories or assistance in breathing life into this thing once again. It is certainly suspicious that I have the same exact problem with two different machines. -_-
