    I have a French Colecovision and am currently trying to sell it on Ebay. Is it possible to obtain a adapter lead to allow the machine to output to a normal 21 pin SKART ?

    @David

    Hi David, you need the RGB Scart (secam) cable, it works Only if you have a Colecovision with RGB pinout on the rear side (photo #2)

    Hi first of all thanks for sharing this with us. And so after viewing these pics I thought you would be capable to help me here… I have the same model as described; it is a French colecovision with that video output but I can’t manage to get any sound from it. Right now I’m using it in Portugal does this matter? My region is pal-b.

    Thanks in advance
