  1. Ok well due to the lack of replies I have just added it on the front of the console like everyone else did not as nice looking in my opinion but fits in the display cabinets I use better
  2. Awesome thanks guys, I will contact 5-11under for a multicart
  3. Hello I would like one of these when you are ready to take more orders, thanks
  4. If you use any multi bit screw driver without a bit installed it will fit the screws
  5. I have the Canadian model called the leisure vision the system and cartridges look identical to the Arcadia 2001 except for the name change. I dont however have a Arcadia 2001 cartridge to test only leisure vision ones. Does anyone know if they are fully compatible? And thanks for the link to 5-11unders threadif they are compatible I will try to make an order, thanks
  6. Just recently picked one of these up with a couple games, in decent shape too, the plastic on the joysticks seems to have shrunk and cracked a bit revealing the metal post inside and the power button seems to be stuck on but otherwise good shape and the old rf video still working good. The games seem to be a bit hard to find and a little expensive as well. Does anyone know if there is a multi cart available for this system so I can just invest in that instead of paying too much for 2600 quality games? Also how easy is it to composite mod this system?
  7. Dont know if youre still trying to fix the video on your Telstar, the rf modules seem to fail on these often and not sure how to repair the module. A composite video mod is the easiest way to go to fix your video and is fairly easy to do all you need is a couple wires to do it. You can find all the info you need in this thread http://atariage.com/forums/topic/251031-composite-mod-coleco-telstar/
  8. Found the thread, it was a different pong console that I had hollowed out the rf box actually. Looks like I just de soldered the jack from the box and soldered it to my wires, plugged the rf cable in and zip tied it to something in the case. You can find what I did with pictures if you scroll down towards the bottom of the thread. Everything will look nice and original when its all closed up and you can plug your rf cable from the console right into the yellow jack on your tv instead of using your adapter to go into the coax jack for a nice clear picture http://atariage.com/forums/topic/251031-composite-mod-coleco-telstar/
  9. I had the same issue with mine, the rf module is shot. I did a composite mod to fix the problem. You dont need anything special to do the mod just solder a couple wires. I hollowed out the rf box and attached the wires inside it so I didnt need to buy a composite jack and used the original rf cable as the video cable so when its all closed up it looks completely original, I will see if I can find a link to the thread with instructions and pictures
  10. I will be modding my O2 to use Atari controllers and cant decide where to put the new controller ports. What is everyones opinion on putting them on the back of the console to keep it kind of original looking or to have them on the front of the console to be more practical especially if the O2 is placed in a cabinet but obviously No longer original looking?
  11. Thanks grips03 I did see the link in the posts discussing the type 1 and 2 mods but figured itd be a hassle ordering and shipping the parts to Canada and putting them together. But decided to try it anyway and shipping wasnt an issue like it often is with some American companies. just finished soldering the boards, now just need to find some wire and I can test them out. If all goes well Ill probably have two boards available for sale since the boards come in 3 packs
  12. Darn it appears that I am too late for the type 1 mod... if you do decide to make and sell some more please let me know. If not Ill try to solder myself up something like your type 2 mod since its easier for me to get those parts where I live.
  13. Awesome thank you so much VPB for the picture and to cool Dave the Atari controller mod info can be found here http://solarfox.triluminary.net/hwh_o2avc_p2.php
  14. I recently acquired an odyssey 2 and one of the hardwired controllers was snapped off and missing. So I am doing a controller port mod so I can use Atari controllers and while I got it apart a composite video mod. I am hoping to find a voice module for it eventually so I dont want to put my new ports in the way as I read it covers some of the back of the console. Issue is I cant seem to find any photos of the back of the console with the module attached. Can someone please take a picture of theirs and post it here for me? Thanks
  15. Hey guys, so i figured out how to get it open and scrubbed it good with an old toothbrush, que tips and rubbing alcohol. and got it all back together but unfortunately it made no difference, I will seee if I can find some of that cleaner de-greaser you mentioned and see if that makes any difference if not I will have to see if I can find new pots that fit
