Intellivision question....

Recommended Posts

Well....I got an INTV system in the mail. I think it is the first model because the controllers are wired into the system and the AC supply is wired into the system. I got it up and running and started up a game of Night Stalker. This is where the problem happened. It just stayed on the title screen. I figure it is the controllers that are broken, because I tried pressing every button on them and nothing happened. Plus the part of the black (rubber?) that covers the wires of the controllers is bare towards the front of the controller....you can see the little wires and shit. Its like that on both controllers.

Is my INTV just going to be useless since the controllers are broken....if they are?

My controllers also have exposed wires in the same place (and mine's an original), but they work fine, despite a lot of wear and tear...

 

I recommend opening the case and checking that 1) the controllers are actually connected (they have internal removable connections) and 2) the connecting wires aren't frayed.

Also clean out the insides of the controllers. Small peices of the flex circuit can flake off and cause short circuits.
