I bought this from a collector who claimed it was broken.One of my friends had one when I was a kid.I knew from talking to him that the toy breaks now and then because the internal mechanism is a big direct circuit.If a light bulb blows(it uses car signal light bulbs) then the toy won't work.

The manufacterer also supplied replacement bulbs taped inside the housing that can be removed without a screwdriver.

I replaced the burnt out bulb and VOILA...one functional Star Trek Telescreen Console from 1976...even the primitive score counter works :)

Here's a video I made myself of the video game in action :)

Thanks Al :)

I never owned this paticular game when I was a kid even though my friends and I spent hours playing it at my friends place.I had a handheld race car game that was basically the same "scrolling" kind of game...the hours I spent playing that thing ;)
