  5. so i have at long last with a lot of work got the French RGB colecovision board i have in my possession working once again. my question is does anyone know a fill pinout for the motherboard RGB connector. i have looked on http://www.colecovision.dk/technical.htm i have also looked on http://www.nightfallcrew.com/14/06/2009/cbs-colecovision-secam-rgb-hackcbs-colecovision-secam-rgb-hack/ they are both incorrect, and so my first attempt produced a pretty pants cable that was not fit to be used (wrong colours etc) I have finally got a rgb picture out of it using a combination of them both and my own judgement but the other pins in the connector provide voltage when measured against the board ground that is not documented on any site. do we know what the other pins do. also what are i would like to just put this out there for comments, the audio from the RGB connector is incredibly weak, i was thinking of using a transistor or maybe two paired together to increase the power of this so you don't have to have the tv on max to hear anything (hopefully will result in less interference buzz from whatever is causing that! i will post a completed pin out later that i know that is as good as i can get it. but the other pins i will need a bit of help maybe with someone with a proper French RGB cable any info greatly appreciated

  10. 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
  11. Recently, I bought a lot of two woody VCS+ joystick controllers+ a pair of paddles and 2 games (with boxes in poor condition) for a whooping 10€ price, which is a good bargain, even here where the 2600 systems aren't much looked after. While testing the units, I started to notice some differences between the 2 systems. Keep in mind that the Atari 2600 was released in France in 1981, the last year of the woody model. So I was wondering if those differences were leftovers from the US variant, or if they might come from an early run of PAL/SECAM adaptations that were discarded. Here are some pictures of the machines : The newer on the left, the oldest on the right (by number production) The oldest one feature the double HP vents. Were those also on US 4 switches models? I though they were only on 6 switches unit? The back feature more screw holes, smaller holes near the stamps. What is it for? A channel selector "A" and "B". Note that the channel selector option is also on his usual place on top of the unit, with the "channel 2-3 " marking (and it's left unused, at least on the SECAM version. It make sense since the woody SECAM unit uses UHF channel 36 ). As far as I know, A and B aren't used in the European CCIR TV systems (we use channel numbers), so I really don't know what kind of channel it was meant to select (there is no switch so it choose nothing anyway). On the back, holes have beel hidden with a thick adhesive piece of plastic. From the size and shape, it was probably meant to house joysticks connectors and a power connector in the middle. Does this exist on US Atari too? Just a view on the stamps : This first one is the standard Atari sticker, or I suppose so. The second mention that the system is certified to be used in France and mention the fact you have to plug it on the back of your TV (and not using a T shaped plug to connect both antenna and system at the same time). Europe use a RCA-like connector for antenna so swapping between antenna and video games systems isn't as annoying as the double fork or F plus used in the USA And manual switchboxes were allowed too. For your eyes's pleasure : This board is very different from the later SECAM boards found in black VCS. The most interesting feature is that UHF transmitter that seems to pick up video and audio, calling for a very easy A/V mod. I gotta try it! So... Is that "old" VCS an oddity, or is it perfectly normal to find those feature on it? Thanks for taking a look and answering
