  1. Hi! I am a total O2 noob, as you will soon read and discover below! :)

    a.) How you got your system?

    I just bought my first O2 this weekend at the Midwest Gaming Classic in Brookfield Wisconsin! I got it in the vendor tent on Saturday with no box, no games, for $15. I thought that was a good price. Dave from Packrat Video Games let me hook it up to his display. Turns out the left joystick won't go left :sad:. He mentioned that the joystick may be dirty and to try cleaning it a bit. He then suggested to swap controllers to make sure that it was just the joystick and not the board itself.

    b.) Your favorite memory of the system or games?

    The first time I ever played the O2 was at the Midwest Gaming Classic two years ago! I think the game I played was UFO, and it was on a multicart. I thought the multicart was really cool (dipswitches and all), and had thought about getting one ever since! I played Basketball on the O2 in the video game museum against my friend and his son, and it was fun too!

    c.) The weirdest thing you have typed into "Type and Tell" to make The Voice say?

    I don't have The Voice yet, but if anyone has a great deal on an extra unit, please let me know!

    If you open up the controller and remove the board inside (you have to remove the black joystick tip and lock washer holding shaft to the black dome shaped part) you will notice that the board has a plastic membrane. Carefully separate it from the back where it is split and peel it back until you expose the left contact points. Clean the area with some rubbing alcohol and let dry. Put the two plastic sheets back together and test out the left direction.

    I have fixed various O2 joysticks doing this but be very careful and patient separating the membranes as the plastic can break and be gentle on the contact points too. Also be careful if you remove the cord connector from the contact strip on the board as any breaks in those will essentially make the joystick unusable.

  3. Wow, I really thought it might take a few days to sell this. Although the price is lower it is still $120.00 and that seems a lot for a video game to me. I essentially sold it for what the lot cost me so that is where I set the price.

     

    My thoughts were essentially give someone a price break that really needed it for their collection and that seems to be what happened. It is more fun and fulfilling to know this will be kept and treasured rather than flipped for a few bucks..


  4. Hello everyone, I hope this is allowed but if not let me know and I will delete the thread. So I have a CIB O2 collection which I finished last year. However, I am always looking for updrades if they are deals. I bought a big lot of O2 stuff and included was a CIB Power Lords.

     

    I am not really a hoarder so I see no reason to keep 2 of these. My first impulse was to put this on EBay as a few copies have been going for around $180. However, I thought I'd give true collectors first shot at it for a discounted price. I'd really like this to go to someone going for a complete set.

     

    So if any O2 collectors want it I will take $120 shipped for it. Probably best to do it through regular PayPal as you would be protected if anything happens to the package. This offer is only good until 03/24/17 midnight after which it goes to EBay.

     

    PM me if interested and/or post questions here if you wish.

  5. Okay, here are the pics... my box is not in the best shape so you will have to do some touch up but it is complete.

     

    First 2 pics are of the wider sides and are 15 1/2 by 8 inches.

     

    The next two are the narrower sides and measure 15 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches.

     

    Next are the ends which measure 8 by 6 1/2 inches or 7 1/2 with the flap.

     

    Finally is a pic of the two interior flaps that are attached to the main box and measure 6 by 3 inches each.

     

    If you need anything else feel free to let me know.
