Replacement Part for Colecovision internal component?

Recommended Posts

I have a "Mostly Working" coloecvision.  If you supply power to it, it turns on.   If you put in a cartridge, it reads it.   The only problem is due to bad instruciotns from Adam's House, I permenantly ruined my Joyport 1 on the Colecovision, so I can't plug in any joystick.  they told me to pull the port, so I pulled it apart, and it got ruined.

 

I'm not getting much help from the repair shop, who told me to to find a non-working colecovision, and transplant the joyport.  he says he can solder it for $25  -the $10 analysis fee.

 

I asked if there is a generic equivalent part for the right angle Colecovision DB9 port? The repairman said there was none.   I asked A couple companies whihc may have the piece, and they said they didn't know enough about the particular repair or the Colecoviison itself to answer the question.

 

I'm trying to get the repairman on board.  All he has to do is solder on a new 9-pin connector.  But he insists on a genuine CV connector, becuase there is no part number on it, so he can't look up equivalents.

 

I found this searching for  a solder-on DB9 right angle connector: https://www.cablewholesale.com/specs/3530-14009.php?utm_source=GoogleShopping&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=3530-14009&utm_campaign=DB9%20Right%20Angle%20Female%20Connector%2C%20Solder%20Type&gclid=CjwKCAjw5ZPcBRBkEiwA-avvk6cT-8xUjIPMCP6SxL0hcXOUZuYkZJAbaXnnP17vGGB21YoWSrEwsRoCx1kQAvD_BwE

 

$4 shipping plus <$1 for the cost of 1, plus I know it's not ruined.   A lot less in cost and a lot more sure to work than a stereotypical non-working Colecovision.  The only thing I don't know is whether it's compatible with a Colecovision.

I believe that the joystick port on the ColecoVision is exactly the same part/item as that used in the Atari 2600 etc.  B&C Computer Visions used to sell them (www.myatari.com).  Send them an email and ask for Item# 140995007584 "Joystick DB-9M 4 NP PCB Connectors 2600/7800/800 Atari New" - hopefully they still have stock.

Atari 2600 or an old Sega Genesis port will work just fine.  I would offer to do it for you and just charge parts but shipping to me will cost you more than to just have the other guy do it.

I have some spares that are exactly like the ones posted from console5.  I can get you one for $5 shipped within the US, just send me a PM if interested.

Can you beat $15 combined shipping both ways and labor?

If your in the us I can mail you one

 

Can you beat $5 Paypal including shipping, no labor.  Is it considered in unused shape?  Is it the exact same model sold on Console5 that says compatible with Colecovision, 2600 and 7800?
