About last year, I fiddled on ePay and won an auction for a Bally Astrocade, with some games, and one joystick. Only now I got enough time to finally look on it, and check out the misfit of the console. When it arrived, it rattled inside. Never a good sight. Turn out it was just a penny, minted in 1981 However, one capacitor was snapped, and I discovered in horror the cooling system of the console - a cheap array of metallic madness. So I worked to make the console workable - note that I had pics of the console working before shipping, but Internet is filled with horror stories of those systems dying after shipping across the US... so a trans-oceanic shipping? Well anyway, today was the final day, where I got a new capacitor - the older one had a leg broken at the base, making it impossible to resold - the capacitor might have exploded from heating. With newspaper proof that it's THERE, and not anywhere else I know it's a dirty cut job, but I only had one drill, one plier and a hammer to do that so... hush I had to look into the attic to find an old travel TV, and THAT one only accepted NTSC-M RF video. I played with one hand to shot the vid, so yeah I suck
