My recent CDTV and Accessories (almost complete): With Issues!

Hi all,
I recently picked up a slightly used Commodore CDTV, plus lots of accessories. Here are the pictures:

It came with the following items:

CDTV Mouse
CDTV Remote
CDTV Keyboard
CDTV Floppy
CDTV Trackball
CDTV Black Caddy


Additionally, the seller, also included the 'Pro' version box, which contains the following:

CDTV Floppy (brand new in the box with the silver sticker intact!) <--This is in addition to what came with the system!
CDTV Keyboard (Still in the pink plastic cover and the foams) <--This is in addition to what came with the system!
CDTV Mouse <--This is the same mouse that came with the system, but it is brand new with instructions and the plastic cover!

And finally it came with a Sony RGB monitor!

The CDTV system is in VERY good condition and it plays all the games and floppy diskettes that I threw at it last night, even the CDTV titles that I burned (Defender of the Crown 2, Xenon 2, etc.) worked flawlessly when the eject button was working, so I know that the laser component is still intact.

Issues:

1) The eject button issue

The CDTV eject mechanism has issues, and the caddy gets stuck most of the time: I have managed to take it out, but I am afraid to put it back in, as I opened the font panel and fiddled with it for about an hour. I have contacted the seller, and he is willing to help me to fix it however![/B][/B][/B]

2) Trackball not working

Also the Trackball does not seem to work: I inserted brand new batteries, but it does not do anything.

3) I am not sure if this game specific or not, but using the CDTV remote, when I play a floppy game (The Naughty Ones, or a shoot'em up game), it always select the TWO Player mode, and sometimes the left, right, seem a bit stiff or stuck (In The Naughty Ones, the Player 1 is stuck to the right)

The Directional button in the Splash Screen seem to work OK however.


I paid $600US Dollars for the whole thing.

Was this a fair deal?

They are not rare in the EU and they are really only valuable with a working CD drive as that is what goes and they can't replaced as they are unique to CDTV.

The valuable collector's items are the pro box and all the sealed items. Never seen before. That's got to be worth $200+ to a collector

That's not a CDTV monitor. Probably not worth $100. CDTV monitors were black commodore branded 1084 monitors

Not rare no, but CDTV's go for £100-£120 solo depending on condition, no chance at $60(£47!)
