I am very proud to own Yellow Computer Space #10299. The thing is complete and not working. I have replaced the power supply so far and no change. GE TV is working with white raster on the screen. I see some issue with that tube above the flyback. Game does nothing. This is going to be quite the challenge. So worth it! Seems to be an early game as it has no lock on the front.

My buddy Adam (onecircuit.com) comes with me to pick up the game from Pilot Air and bring it back to the garage. We try getting the game working when we return. Thanks, Adam!

Also in the video I interview Ed Fries (Microsoft Excel, Xbox launch Team, Figure Prints, etc.) about his Yellow Computer Space he just fixed. Read about it here: https://edfries.wordpress.com

And... we interview Kevin from http://www.computerspacefan.com - the dude knows his stuff!

This is a long episode. Hope you like it! :)

Looking for Dragons Lair 1 or 2, Space Ace, Double Dragon, Robotron and yeah... a Shinobi would be cool, too!

Nice! I've seen the first part of the video... until your tried with a modern power supply.
Mine is also using a modern power supply.(see the ET road trip here;D


Oh, you mention in the vid that the CS without the coin door are the earliest one. Mine (blue one) doesn't have one too...
Good luck for the restoration... and with the help of Adam, it shouldn't take too much time!  ;) Lucky bastard!  :P

Yes sir! Never had to do something since I got it, 8 years ago!  :)
...unfortunately, It doesn't have the original TV in there, it has been replaced by an other one, more modern I would say...
Anyway, works great and plays well so far (but fingers crossed each time I'm plugging it  :roll:)
