Yeah, it's interesting. Looking into the hole in the can, I can see an empty 
pad immediately underneath. So perhaps it has been ripped out. Odd, because 
the rest of the machine is in perfect condition.

I was wondering if they ever sold Coco3's without RF output.

Anyway, no biggie, I never had any intention of using RF output anyway. I'll 
be using composite and RGB only.
