$99 ColecoVision Refurbish and Mod Special Offer

Recommended Posts

Edit: I have decided to end this offer and reinstate my $89 refurbishing and modding special offer. Any pending transactions will be honored.

 

There are 2 flaws with this offer.

 

1. I lose a lot on return shipping

2. Customer is paying for BIOS skip weather they want it or not.

 

Here is a link to my $89 refurbishing and modding offer.

How much If I only want my BIOS changed to not have the CV bootup screen, and maybe the AV mod too?

 

What are the details on the AV mod? I would like yellow and white RCA jacks out the back (is a red one and stereo sound available?). Is that how it ends up? Your description says, "Single jack A/V composite mod with cord included" so it does not sound like separate RCA jacks.

If you want just the BIOS it would be $25 and you would have to pay return shipping. I don't install female RCA jacks on the back of the CV. My mod is a single jack for both Audio and Video.

Just watched your video and it all looks awesome. I am wondering if the pause switch can be placed on the controller. I mean if you straighten the cord for a longer controller range, then you might no be right next to the console to pause a game.

 

Just wondering...

Thanks for the compliment on the video.

 

There aren't enough wires available on the DB9 cable to pause both the console and the sound. Both the standard controller and the SAC use 7 wires, there are 2 unused wires on a SAC cable (occasionally I find a 9 conductor cable used on a standard controller) and these could be used to pause the console,however the sound would be a continuous drone. I consider the continuous drone unacceptable.

 

I am still trying to figure a way to accomplish both. If I find a way I will offer the mod for it.

can you or do you have plans to offer higher quality video mods? i would prefer an s-video or a component mod over a composite mod.

As someone who invested in a couple of component mod kits, I can say that it's pretty cool to have them. However, I'll be the first to point out that the composite mods are just as "quality." There are a few reasons why I might choose composite over component in my next round of mods:

 

1. The component mod doesn't change the output resolution of the ColecoVision so you're still limited to 240 lines of resolution.

2. Less cables. Less hassle.

3. Composite is more versatile: Almost every set today modern or old has composite (or can be adapted easily.)

4. I've heard *some* televisions are not able to display the lower resolution signal provided over component. I personally don't have this issue on any of my TVs: Samsung, Toshiba x2, Dell

 

Just some things to think about. :)

 

That said, I still think my component CV machine is right swell. myico1.png I also know that Yurkie has done component mods in the past using 5-11's kits (which are super awesome) so if you want to spend the moola, he'll probably do it! Heck, I'd do it if you bought the kit and sent me your CV... but I've seen Yurkie's work first hand so I know he'd be the best and the fastest for such a mod.

No. I like the single jack composite mod and have no plans to offer any other video mods.

Just curious...does the RF still function after this mod?

 

Yes the RF works, and the Composite video and sound works for the Atari Module.

Compatibility with the Atari module isn't as much of an issue, but still good to know.

 

I have a unit which would probably be a good candidate for a refurbish like this, but I believe the power supply may be shot as well. Can you do anyhting with these?

I can test the power supply if you want to include it. If it is bad I will sell you a working replacement for $20. Send me an IM if your interested.
