ColecoVision RF Unit & Video Circuit Photos

Recommended Posts

While recapping one of my ColecoVision's I removed the RF unit to get access to the two electrolytic caps located on the motherboard beneath it and also the one on the RF daughterboard.  I don't recall having ever seen photos of the RF unit's component side or the associated video switching circuit that is beneath the RF unit on the motherboard.  So, before I reassembled everything I took a load of photos in case they were a useful reference to anyone else.

 

I took photos from lots of angles as well as close ups of component labels.

Note that I took the photos after I installed the new capacitors, hence the electrolytic caps in the photos are the new ones and not the originals.  They are all 10uF.

I didn't think the insides of an RF unit were so... colorful.  :)

I particularly like the luminous green 8 pin riser 😀

I'll bet you a dime it glows in the dark when it heats up.  ;)

I'm amazed at how clean it is.  Or did you put it through an ultrasonic while it was apart?

The motherboard was a little dusty but I gave it a good clean with alcohol and it came up a treat.  The RF board was lovely and clean as it was.
