FIXING A CBS COLECOVISION





Finaly, I have no luck.

Recently I have purchased a CBS Colecovision (my first console ever).

At the begining It was working. In fact I had just the time to play a Donkey Kong and the Display has started to glitche ending with no display at all.

I have checked the PSU wich was OK.

The first suspect was the Chip video.

The second, the RAM modules.

So I have unsoldered the 8 RAM modules and the chip video.

I have tested the RAM modules on my ZX Spectrum : they were ok.



So I left the RAM on the Speccy, and put the RAM of the speccy inside the Coleco.

I put back the chip video and...

The console starts with some glitches.



The sound is ok and the game works :D At least the display is back :D



Now I have ordered the TMS9929ANL. Let’s wait a couple of days and try again.

Edit : The colecovision is fixed. The VDP was ok.
Most of the RAM modules were dead and there was another issue. I will complete soon.
