You just can use a smartphone adapter, the more power the better. It can handle various volts (protected).

You can read all about it and buy it here: https://www.dragonbox.de/en/accessories/power-supplies/colusb-usb-power-supply-for-the-colecovision-power-supplies

Shipping is very fast (Germany)

But Nothing else can beat our Odyssey / Videopac Wink.
Mine came with 10 games, including some that I really like, such as: Venture and Lady Bug. I didn't know the adapter. The Intv community has created many good things. For now, I'm a little frustrated, there's something weird about the colors Cry. I need to test calmly.

A bit jealous. That is my next system to collect. Especially with the 2600 adapter.

When you have troubles with the screen don't immediately think about the videocard. I had the same problem and it could be that the adapter is not functioning optimal anymore. That can cause problems with colours. The adapters are weak things after more then 40 years. Just google about this issue.Can't you try another coleco-adapter?

Yes the power adaptor can be a source of the graphical problems. Also the powerswitch can cause issues. Try to clean that with contactspray for instance. I hear good things about the USB connector by Dragonbox as well. CPU is a source of many problems on the ColecoVision.

Yeah, Iím thinking of buying one too. I have had about four CVís and none of them really worked properly.

I like the system but itís a buggy and flimsy one.

That's a pity. I also like and have collected some other systems like Atari2600/7800, Intellivision, Atari600/800xl, Commodore64, ZX81 even NES, N64, Gamecube etc with a few games for each console, but VIDEOPAC is still my number ONE!!! , with the complete official released games A , 1-60 and the various consoles like Jopac and the games (not complete, missing 3 games). And I really enjoy the Homebrews. I hope there will be enough buyers for the release of Shark Attack. It really looks so great! Long live Videopac!!!  Smiley
