  1. Not an expert by any means but it sounds like you have fried a controller chip so yes that would be the next step. The Colecovision controller chips are notorius for static electricity build up frying the chip, shag carpet and crt static build up can cause this also never unplug a controller while the console is turned on. You can purchase some Ruggers Customs ESD anti static boards to also install under the controller port to prevent this from happening in the future.Cheers and Good Luck!
  2. 100% agree with your approach!!
  3. That is a bad ram chip on U10, I did the tests and screen shots on this issue for Kamshaft and his excellent website Colecovision Addicts. If you go to the site and look up fixing ram via screen shots you will see the exact same picture you posted under the U10 ram slot(I believe it is the first picture). They sell kits at console5 also to do it yourself. Here is the link to CA. Cheers and good luck! Sorry I should have read the post above more thoroughly before I posted, I see you are already aware of this issue. https://cvaddict.com/article.php?articleid=19
  4. I don't know if this helps but I had a coleco adam with an internal power mod that went black screen and humming and it turned out to be on the internal power mod a wire was not soldered correctly and shorting out. I hope this helps.
  5. Here is the part number and a link for you CKC5105-ND Cheers. https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/c-k/S802C21S207Q/CKC5105-ND/181457
  6. I appreciate the feedback both ways(thank you for taking the time to comment ) and I hope my last comment did not come off as negative cause that was not my intention at all! My main reason for posting was to give something back to the Colecovision community that Has given me so much(pay it forward) and I thought there might be some people out there who would like this option if they were inclined to change their power switch. Thanks for all your comments and all you guys do for the Colecovision community! Cheers.
  7. I agree with you 100% and all my Colecovisions have the original switch but I buy Colecovisions broken and then refurbish them and flip them on eBay. I have found out(the hard way) that most people are not mechanically inclined enough even to open a colecovision let alone fix a dirty power switch. So to avoid return fees or issues for my customers that are not as inclined to clean a switch sand to make it easier for their Colecovision to last them longer without dirty switch issues it was better for me as a seller and my conscious period. I had to be talked into changing the switches out by a friend who said it was a good customer thing to do and I did not like the rocker switch at all and was not convinced that that was the only solution so I searched high and low for something I though would be as close to the original slide switch as possible and have a longer shelf life. This switch is probably the 6th or 7th I tried before I found it and it is more enclosed than the original and should last longer which is good for my purpose while staying as true to the original as I can. That my 2 cents. Cheers
  8. I just wanted to share this to the people here. I have been using a new Slide switch I got from digikey instead of the rocker switch that has been a go to for years. This switch allows the user to still experience that old school slide feel when powering on their colecovison and is a huge improvement over the original. This switch just snaps right into your colecovision in the existing hole with zero cutting needed. I have been using it for a few days now and have been real happy with it. It is not a replacement for the rocker switch at all which is still a great solution but more of another option for people, especially the old school ones who hate to stray from the original feel of their console power switch. While not original it is very close to it and a good alternative to a rocker imo. Cheers
  9. I would also like one of these if made available to purchase to use for my 10 colecovisions sitting in my shop. It would save tons of testing time.
  10. Team pixelboy Is selling rom versions of some of the games from your website an option or not something you are interested in and I am very sorry if this is taboo or not allowed to ask. I would have no problem paying you for rom versions of some of the unreleased games not available on cart anymore. Just a thought for people with a phoenix or a mister box. Cheers
  11. I have used probably 10 or more of these exact same boards and never had a problem with any of them. I do lots of AV mods and I doubt it is the board causing it to do what is being described here.
  12. I will second this I have had mine for about 2 months and never gets hot and works great. I use it on my test bench when I am repairing colecovisions. My first choice is always an original power brick but this is a great second choice. Cheers.
