Re: Egret 2 Illumination Panel -- Different Versions?

Backlights are the same color. Pictures of the two types attached in case anyones curious. I assume the green and yellow is the later variation because the ones i got from taito tech before they ran out also had that color scheme.

Egret 2 Illumination Panel -- Different Versions?

Ive been kind of oblivious to this until the other day, but i noticed that one of my Egret 2's has green/yellowish colorings on the illumination panel text and the other has a slightly different green with white coloring instead. Any idea if there were two different versions? Or is this probably som...

Re: Egret 2 + ms2931 chassis

My bad, thats a ms2932s in my cabinet. Same idea applies to ms2931 though as i think the dimensions are also different from the ms9. What toshiba tube are you planning on hooking up to the 2931? I didnt think there were any with the correct curvature that were compatible with that chassis?

Re: Egret 2 + ms2931 chassis

I used one piece of wood to attach to the existing ledge, then a longer piece to attach to that so i could mount the chassis sideways, since that seemed to give the cables a decent amount of slack for rotation. (Well except the ground and degauss). Its not pretty, but it works and it was cheap since...

Re: Egret 2 + ms2931 chassis

It doesnt fit, but you can make it fit :D
I basically cut some wood and made a platform for it to sit in mine. As for cabling: Degauss lines need to be lengthened on the tube, and it wouldnt hurt to lengthen the ground line a little bit. I'll upload some pics later

Re: Egret II Replacement

Ive got the same tube in my spare egret 2 now with a platform for a ms2932s chassis to sit in. Plus side is that it fits the bezel, but on the other hand its stuck at 31k. Like everyone else mentioned the only way itll work with an ms9 chassis is with a yoke swap. My current problem is the wife does...

Re: What Monitors can fit Egret II

Curved ms2932s's fit. I have one in my egret ii now. Same Toshiba tube model as the ms29t, but different yoke. They seem to be easier to get since a lot of naomi cabs had them. Because of the yoke issue, i kept the ms2932 chassis, which limits me to 640x480, but im only using that cab for naomi, so ...

Didn't end up being an issue. The gunk came clean off by just brushing it. Monitors working great.

Red coating around CRT anode socket

Thought I would ask here before I do something stupid.... So I made some modifications to my cabinet and accidentally had the crt's anode unplugged for a while... now there are some small flakes of black dust/grime on an area of the red coating around the anode. Before I re-attach the anode, should ...

Re: Auto Switching MS9 / J-pac Issue

Ive only used my J-pac for 15Khz or 31Khz input, haven't tried the med res setting, but from the J-PAC website under the monitor section (http://www.ultimarc.com/jpac2.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;), it sounds like the jumpers are filters for the different frequencies: the inst...

Re: Toshiba a68kju96x Degauss Cord (MS9)

the guy i bought the tube from still had the ms2932 chassis, so I decided to go that route. Ill probably dedicate this one to naomi stuff for now, so it works out. Maybe ill attempt a yoke swap at some point later on.

Re: Toshiba a68kju96x Degauss Cord (MS9)

Toshiba tube on my original ms9 Egret reports 14.25mH for vert, 0.333mH for horiz
New Toshiba tube is reporting 14.65mH for vert, 0.210mH for horiz

How far off can the inductance be for the chassis to work properly?

Re: Toshiba a68kju96x Degauss Cord (MS9)

For impedance, 6.7 ohms on the vertical, 0.6 ohms on the horizontal, which according to the wiki seems closer to the ms2932.
My other toshiba tube that came with an ms9-29T measures the same... I'll check out the inductance next.

Re: Toshiba a68kju96x Degauss Cord (MS9)

interesting, that may explain why the tube has burn marks on one of the connectors... ill go measure it and see what comes back.
