  1. My Channel F / SABA Videoplay adventure - part 1 I've recently bought a SABA Videoplay console from ebay. My first time checking out that console. I don't even remember it from back in the day. I remember INTERTON, but not this one. Well, I'm always interested in exotic consoles using "forgotten" microprocessors, like the Fairchild F8-family. I found a cheap system on ebay, marked as "used". Ok, this is what a used system looks like: I'd interpret this as, yes, "used" certainly, but more as "not working at all". Strange, what some ebay-sellers do consider as "used".He claimed, that it has been working, but probably he would be too dumb to find the channel on the tv-set. I kept it anyway, since I wanted to explore it, maybe repair it or use it for spare parts. I ripped it apart, washed the dirty thing and examined it closer. This is what the Videoplay is made of: A lot of plastic and metal shielding. Quite corroded. Cartridge assembly from below and a cartridge pcb, showing two PSUs (Program Storage Units), one cap fallen of. The chips being directly attached to the pcb, the bonding wires visible and accessible. No IC-housing. I've never seen this before. The famous and very fragile controllers. We can see, the pcb is made by FAIRCHILD. This is already the model with custom chips (video and audio/buffer) and considerably reduced component-count. I injected the video signal of another console, to check, if the rf-part is working. Yes, working. I removed socketed components, cleaned pins, tried again. No change. Later I discovered aged solder joints around the crystal and the clock generation. I resoldered and suddenly had some kind of reaction from the board. Due to bad solder joints the clock generation failed (look at pcb-picture above). Every 2nd line (grey background) is displayed. Game logic is working. Ball is bouncing. Players can be moved, but not all movements. Some controls are alway on paddles moving into one direction. At least, the processor is working. What else did I have? The plastic cap of the antenna plug has fallen to pieces. All of them are doing that after some decades. The power switch was not moving it all. Interesting! I disassembled the power switch. It was filled with some unknown white material, which blocked the movement completely. I cleaned it. The tiny white pistons are operating the contacts of the switch and are pushed into opposite directions by a small spring. Unfortunately, this micro-spring was broken into two pieces. I replaced it with some kind of spring from another switch, but it is not moving really well. to be continued soon ...

  3. Haven't taken any pictures yet, boxed items. Got the in a "lot", don't want to strip them into Multi-Carts. The SABA#20 is a proper chess game, has different difficult settings and a LED in the label area indicating the video game is busy calculating how to beat you the most humiliating way. Images from my Channel F gallery - not the actual item for sale: SABA#19 is exactly the same as Channel F Videocart #23 - Galactic Space Wars. Different labels and box of course. This is a double title that also has "Lunar Lander" on it. If you have a hard time finding a #23 and want a playable copy - get this one. Images not showing the actual item: NOT MY YOUTUBE VIDEO: https://youtu.be/yT3VwP4w7bg If you'd like to make bid or just announce you're interested, let me know. I'll take some proper images soon and make a proper ad if needed. These aren't that easy to find in the wild and are usually overly expensive on eBay.com
