How to make your own ColecoVision Power Supply that operates worldwide

Recommended Posts

I just saw an auction for a colecovision, and the pictured power supply was clearly for a TI-99. Are they compatible? I'm asking because you look to be the power supply expert.

The answer is no. The ColecoVision power supply outputs DC voltage at 12 volts DC, 5 volts DC, and -5 volts DC. The TI/99 power supply outputs AC voltage at 16 volts AC and 8 volts AC.  The connector will fit but the TI-99 power supply would most likely fry the ColecoVision videogame system.
