Ikrananka Posted September 17, 2019 Share Posted September 17, 2019 (edited) I'm pleased to announce that I've made this project open source so that anyone can make a pause mod kit for themselves (or for others). This is my first GitHub project so sorry of it's a little rough around the edges. Hopefully I got it right. Anyway, the repository can be found here: https://github.com/ikrananka/ColecoVision-Power-Flashing-Pause-LED-Mod This project is for a complete ColecoVision pause mod kit that when installed provides not only a pause function for ALL your ColecoVision games, but also has a single classic red LED that functions both as a power indicator (LED steady) as well as a pause indicator (LED flashes). This is an enhanced version of the pause mod that allows you to select the pause LED flashing frequency within the range 0.6 to 3.3 Hz (easily selected during installation). Here are a few pictures of the mod installed: The kit includes everything you need apart from tools and solder (see picture below). Be aware that to install this mod you need to drill two holes in your ColecoVision (one for the pause switch and the other for the LED) and it does involve soldering wires to the motherboard. Detailed installation instructions are included in the GitHub repository. I recommend that you read these to ensure that you're comfortable with the installation process. Also, check out this video which provides a demonstration of the mod as well as information on how to adjust the flashing frequency. This includes short clips showing the LED flashing over the entire available frequency range. ***** While this project is now open source, I do still have one complete kit available for sale from my last and final batch at US$40 + shipping. PM me if you're interested. **** Edited July 7, 2021 by Ikrananka Now open source. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
