A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to buy one of the consoles I always wanted as a kid, the ColecoVision. Through Google searches I came across a website called AtariAge and stumbled upon the YurkiVision. A completely refurbished / Composite Video Modded ColecoVision. Here is what the work performed by Yurkie entails:
- Power Switch rebuilt
- Cartridge Slot thoroughly cleaned with DeoxIT
- Any bad/faulty solder joints re-soldered
- Single jack A/V composite mod
- Housings and cords cleaned
- Joystick directional controllers refurbished
- fire button dissembled and refurbished
- Keypad and keypad socket cleaned
- replacement ball knobs on joysticks
- cords straightened
- socketed intro skip BIOS
- pause button mod
I also had Yurkie add the Socketed Intro skip BIOS. Pressing the fire button on the controller skips the title screen and goes to the game select screen on Coleco released games with the annoying 12 second title screen. I can press the fire button any time to skip to game select screen or wait for the title screen to come up.
Yurkie also added the Pause Button Mod, which pauses and mutes sound on all games. It does not have any effect when using Expansion Module #1 (Atari Module) This is because the Atari module is basically an Atari 2600 console that uses the ColecoVision for power and A/V connection. $35
The units were pretty damn clean when I received them, but I've spent many hours fine detailing these babies. These puppies are about as clean as you can get a +30 year old Colecovision or it's accessories. (no Armour-All used either)
If anyone would like to purchase the awesomeness that is the YurkiVision, just click on the link below:
I love Brab's custom dust covers, I have them for my Intellivision, ColecoVision, ColecoVision Roller Controller, ColecoVision Expansion Module #1, and NES. Buying some for my Sega Saturn and Sega Dreamcast.
