  1. In total I already bought 2 Colocovision Consoles + Adam Computer expansion module 3 incl. printer, keyboard and replacement keyboard, tapes, manuals etc. etc. both sets as untested. I already got a new powersupply and waiting for the RGB mod kits - if the controller chips are faulty (replacement chips already ordered if...) both NTSC. At least I need one Colecovision + the Adam Expansion running. Are there any good manuals for testing / fixing and maybe other easy mods? Bought a "cheap" untested Expansion Module 3 - cheap yes don't ask for shipping + German import taxes...
  2. I might be interested to purchase one diskdrive - depends on price
