Easy monitor question...
05/04/13 05:18 AM


Any suggestions would be welcomed. Monitor diagnosis & repair is beyond my limited knowledge.

Story: Took chips out a game (small bartop cab) to dump. Stored in garage until this week when I put the chips back in. Fired it up and nothing. Re-seated chips still nothing. PCB leds on. Checked wiring and voltages - all OK. Open the back up and there is just a small whisp of smoke(REAL small)... Finally track it down to the seal between where the guns go into the back of the tube(?)

I imagine it's dead...Is it repairable??
Also, shouldn't the game still boot(w/sounds) even with a bad crt?

I also have an old Pole Position monitor that works(?) Turns on and off but to a white screen, it can be turned down to dark. Haven't got the board working yet so I haven't tried another board with it yet. Any ideas on this one?

Thanks for the help guys...


Pessimist: Oh, this can't get any worse!
Optimist: Yes, it can!
