Pacman barely has any colour so you sure its not just that? Otherwise that is a mystery!

some NTSC carts come up B=W on PAL TV sets.

as for the switches, you have to keep an eye out for parts on Flea bay I think.

@ Laird, I considered that they may be NTSC as I also had rolling screens at one time just can't believe I got two NTSC Pacman carts but could well be.

@ Carl, been looking at the Flea bay listings, only complete consoles so far, a bit pricey for one switch.
Thanks for the replies.
