I bought a Colecovision from ebay several months a go but had it sent to my brother-in-law's place in Texas to save on shipping to Canada. I finally picked it up last week and when I went home, I got the RF adapter and was very excited to plug it in. Well, it did nothing but show a dark screen with static. This was even after I took the CV apart and used canned air to blow out all the dust (which was extenstive) and even included a long dead spider in the expansion port. I was pretty frustrated and the 45 day buyer insurance had run out. Any suggestions for getting this CV operational again would be very much appreciated. I am not a technical person so soldering stuff is not really an option but any other suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thank You!
