Re: What did you buy at the carboot today ??

Bought a Vectrex for £20 yesterday.

Seller advised me that it was not working and that has proved to be the case.
My partners brother is a bit of an electronics whizz and we are are going to try and get it up and running.

I e-mailed CEX and received the following reply

Re: Gamecube disc repair question

Thanks for the replies guys.

Will ask in my local CEX, although the reply from Silvergunner does not sound hopeful.

Can anyone shed any light on this? Is someone having a laugh?
