  1. Try used a cleaning cd if you have one. One of mine had some issues reading games and that helped as any dust on or near the laser affects it.
  2. Wow, I've never had a 703965-5 board revision before out of the dozen or so O2s I've composite modded. Let us know how the mod went.
  3. If anybody is looking for a Demon Attack there is one in this lot that appears to be complete. You can always resell the console and other stuff to make this a cheap find depending on what it finishes at. I have done this several times and usually I make most or in many cases all the money I spent back. http://m.ebay.com/itm/RARE-VINTAGE-1981-ODYSSEY-2-VIDEO-GAME-SYSTEM-W-7-GAMES-IN-ORIGINAL-BOX-/122385419739?nav=WATCHING_ACTIVE
  4. Hi Mark, I was using a small flathead also but since those switches are so small and made out of hard plastic (at least I think they are) I was afraid they would snap off especially as some take a bit of force to move. Currently, I am using the hollow end of a plastic q-tip so it fits snugly over the switch tab and using that to move them up and down. It seems to require less force and since it is a softer plastic I am less worried about breakage. I am probably too much of a worry wart but I am using this as my main O2 playing cart so I want to lessen the wear and tear on it.
  5. You have to be patient with the seller as there is a backlog and he makes them one at a time. My copy took six months to arrive but he doesn't charge you until it is ready to ship. He is not even taking orders until next month so I wouldn't expect receiving it until the fall. It is worth it though as for $40 you receive an incredible a amount of games in one convenient cart.
  6. Wow, is that a G7200? What a great addition... congratulations!
  7. Welcome to Platinum! Any story behind the final acquisition?
  8. These were for Activision games back in the day. I remember sending away for the Decathlon one but I never got it. I remember having my brother take a pic of the screen on one of those instant Polaroid cameras. You were hot stuff if managed to get one.

  10. Yes, I think the Las Vegas Blackjack on the cart is the Phillips variant.
  11. As I was cataloging my complete O2 game collection I began to wonder about the two different variations for most earlier O2 games. There are Magnavox and NAP branded variants of the exact same game. Does anybody know why this was done. I assumed the NAP ones were reissues as the later console boxes had the Magnavox brand removed but does anybody know for sure? I took pics of a game and box side by side so you can see the differences. I forgot the manual pics but the only difference is on the back cover where the serial number is different and the NAP one is missing the Magnavox logo. The differences are mainly Magnavox being replaced by NAP on the game cart, the different serial numbers and Magnavox missing from the top front and bottom spine. The dates are both the same everywhere. Here is a list I compiled of the games I have seen with both Variants including Quest for the Rings and UFO which I have both of. Let me know if you know of others.

  12. Oh no, it is just that your title on the thread is for a modded O2 but the link takes you to an RCA Studio II. I am just pointing that out in case you were trying to link another auction with an actual O2.
  13. The link is for an AV modded Studio II which is interesting nonetheless but not an O2.

  15. Great stuff Scotty... this will be a great Brothethood! I was an Atari guy growing up as were most people in my area except one guy who had an O2. We became friends and I would go over and play some KC Munchkin, Baseball, Armored Encounter and several more on a weekly basis. I already had an Atari and although I wanted an O2-College, girlfriends and work took over and I never got it. A few years ago I ran across one on a Craigslist deal and bought it along with a lot of other stuff. It was beat up but it did work. That brought back the old collector juices so I got a CIB and a near complete cart set in a Goodwill auction for less than 100. I have bought and sold over a dozen since then to get parts and paperwork and now have 2 CIB O2s along with a complete US cart set and the 233-in-One Multicart. Nothing too weird on the TAT but I did put my dog's name and then Treat some time ago and she went crazy looking for her snacks... it was pretty funny. I'll look into signing up for that forum and I am waiting for my induction before I add my status to my signature!
  16. Thanks for the reply... I just wanted to be sure mine wasn't defective. It just seems like the switches could easily break if you are not very careful.

  18. I was hoping you would post on this thread as I saw your video and knew you had a complete collection plus! I assume the red highlighted entries means it is missing a manual or box right? Keep those great O2 videos coming too.
  19. Here is the updated list so far... by my count there are 9 members with complete cart collections and 2 more right on the cusp.

  20. There are actually 3 different if you count the Brazilian Odyssey so you might have to go triple platinum as VPB has the libraries for all 3 plus more variants than I knew existed! It would be great if this was pinned and you could edit it as updates come in. I say go for it!
  21. How many do you have? I'd like to add you to our running list.
  22. There is an CIB Atlantis on EBay right now for $55.00! Not a bad price really... http://m.ebay.com/itm/222404321858
  23. Okay to recap so far and feel free to correct me if mistaken... Platinum- Metarog-all 49 original carts CIB+233-In-One. 2 CIB consoles + 1 CIB Voice.

Near Gold- Bassguitari-48 original carts missing only Powerlords+KTAA. 2 consoles (1 boxed) +1 Voice (loose) Others- SSG- unknown but not close Some great collections here and I know there are several more members with complete or near complete collections...
  24. Since it seems like quite a few AA members have complete or near O2 complete sets I thought it would be fun to start a list... Not sure what the "rules" should be however I would think only the original 49 releases are needed to be complete. I also don't think variations should matter so whether you have a later Philllips release or the original Magnavox copy it all should count. I suppose we could have levels so that if you have all boxes, manuals, game pieces, etc that would be Platinum, missing some would be gold and a loose collection silver? What about a boxed console and The Voice? How about an addendum for Homebrews and Multi/Flash carts? Let's discuss... I'll put my stuff in as a starter. Platinum- Metarog-all 49 original carts CIB+233-In-One. 2 CIB consoles + 1 CIB Voice.
