Colecovision OS mods


Recommended Posts



Sorry if this has been asked before.


Does anyone know how to disable the screen timeout on the Colecovision? I know there's a hack that eliminates the start-up screen but I have a need to disable the screen timeout so that the inserted game is always on/shown.


Wouldn't think it would be too hard to do and maybe someone has already.


Appreciate any help.

He meant the screen saver feature. If the machine is left on without anyone using the controller for a few minutes, the screen goes blank to prevent burn-in and I think prevent damage to VDP.

73C0-73C1 TIMER_LENGTH Length of timer
73C2 TEST_SIG_NUM Signal Code

This might be the variable for the screen saver function.
