Garylee1348 Posted February 29, 2020 Share Posted February 29, 2020 Hello all, I've just created this account as I've just recently purchased a Magnavox Odyssey, this one in particular was manufactured in October 1972, making it a very early example of the system. I plugged everything up and ran it to my 1989 Panasonic color television. Upon powering up the system I've discovered that regardless of what game card I plug into the slot, the system will not boot up a game properly. Attached is pictures and a video of the system operating. The static/lines on the screen change slightly depending on how I turn the knobs on the controllers. The point of this post is to inquire with you all as to whether you all believe this could be potentially caused by dried out capacitors? I've just ordered an entire new set of cylinder type Nichicon caps for the system. I'd love to hear what y'all think. Feel free to give me any input. Thanks so much, Gary. trim.1338DCBB-17E8-4C98-A502-FF15B4236453.MOV 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
