  1. Probably literally a minute. : laugh:
  2. As someone with the manual, cart and overlays, all I needed was the box. But, I didn't $560 need the box. (Yes, I had a bid in here until it got into the $200 range!)
  3. That's kind of what I was afraid of. I don't assume there's an alternative to the original paddle is there?
  4. Sadly it seems the system and not the controllers; the controllers seem to work fine in other systems. In the port without the bent pin, every controller I throw at it responds the same way.
  5. I'm honestly not sure if this is the place to post this; the Genesis naturally has a dedicated area but not the Master System. So I picked up a used Master System recently. It was pretty dusty but powers on and that's fine. I just finally got some games and noticed that up and the up diagonals do not respond on the left port, and none of the directions at all seem to respond on the right side. Using any number of controllers does not seem to do anything. So, I was wanting to pop this thing open eventually to install an FM card, but ... I admit, I know very little about the system. Is there something I can do to possibly remedy this problem? Where should I begin looking? Is this repairable? A couple of other questions: I see the system had a paddle for games like Woody Pop. Does a standard DB9 paddle work in its place, or is the Sega one proprietary? One of the controller pins seems bent on the system. Any decent way to possibly bend this back? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
  6. Hahah, call me pessimistic but I'm somehow doubting she'd be down. ^_-
  7. Hahaha, I think so. The lady who lives in the apartment below me while I was jumping up and down like a moron in excitement may not think the same thing though. :: laugh ::
  8. I mean, I want a complete collection too, but not that badly.
  9. God bless you. It is broadcasting on my flat panel TV correctly on channel 4, and I am thrilled beyond words. Thank you thank you THANK you for all the assistance.
  10. Bahahaah, I admit, I was looking at the green circle initially going, "Well those aren't screws ..." I then remembered you had this same pic up for the jumpers on your page about composite out (which I am still seriously considering) and actually read the words you wrote instead of glaring at the wrong part of the picture. :: laugh :: Sooo if no metal tools, what DO you recommend I use??
  11. Oh God no. I'm so sorry to read this! My sincere condolences ...
  12. I assume it’s because the Fairchild Channel F was sold off to Zircon at this point. My better question is, why are Videocarts 18 and 19 missing in that listing?
  13. I didn't notice the 0 rep on a System II I tried to buy off of eBay, and then I get no tracking number and the guy just vanishes off eBay. At least I got my money back. What is it with Channel F systems on eBay and shady sellers??? I'll ask again: to e5frog or to anyone else who can elaborate, where are these screws I would be adjusting to fix the sound/video drifting in my System II?
