Seems this is a common issue lately. I had a clients Intellivision model 2 start doing this not too long after they got it from me and it ended up being the STIC going bad. I believe there is another Intelly SVA in this section with the same issue as you have described. Also pointing to a bad STIC chip in that one too. Maybe I should order 1 or two for myself just in case as I've got 4 soon to be 5 variants of the Intellivsion here at the 'Tower'.

It's the damn polar vortex I tell ya.
And yes all SVAs and hell Intellivisions in general are worth saving if they can be saved.

What is the condition of the case? Do the controllers work? Does it shut-off by itself, or do anything else odd?
If not and the case is good.. .then yes, keep it and fix it.

Well I bought it off eBay with the matching box and 8 controllers. For 80 bucks! I definitely want to fix it but don't know how, is there somewhere with details?
Where are you located roughly?

The STIC went flaky on my Intellivision II recently and showed the exact same problems you are having. In the Model II, the STIC is socketed (or at least is in mine), so just popped the old one out and replaced it. Problem solved right away. I don't know for sure if the STIC is socketed or soldered directly to the board on the SVA. Either way, it's worth saving. STICs aren't terribly expensive and a working one will likely clear up the problem.
Eight controllers? All SVA style? Wow! Those are worth as much (or maybe more) than the $80 you paid for the whole bundle. Nice job.

The STIC is inexpensive. Just send a PM to Humblejack as he has them on hand. Or he did when I had him send one to Blaine about 2 weeks back to fix up his Intelly 2.

So I did an oopsie, I sold it not knowing I could fix it. Do I try to back out and fix to keeping it with the matching sn box, I already told him he could have it, but he seems pretty understanding. Also where do I by a stic chip
Are any of you interested in the controllers, I have no need sadly, or should I hold on? Otherwise we could make a deal
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, for the love of all that's Holy, do not separate the SN box from the unit. Please keep them together.
