Re: Tosh A68KJU96X Nanao MS8 not working - technical help needed

I will receive another MS8 with remote in 1-2 weeks.
My technical knowledge is far from being a professional, but if it won't be either of the already swapped parts (chassis, yoke and soon remote board), what's left?

Re: Tosh A68KJU96X Nanao MS8 not working - technical help needed

Here we go again... Thanks to yosai, I was able to source down a Nanao compatible yoke pretty quickly. Unfortunately the failure image stays pretty much the same: https://imgur.com/a/SbWCFnJ It's really no fun anymore, 2 chassis, 2 yokes, 2 times the same failure?! Oh and of course I've cross checke...

WTB: Yoke for a MS8 / Toshiba tube combo

Maybe there is someone with a necked tube from an Astro City in here?
I'm looking for a yoke from a Nanao MS8 compatible tube.
Any info where to get one appreciated!

Re: Tosh A68KJU96X Nanao MS8 not working - technical help needed

That doesn't sound good...
Would you say the monitor can be repaired?
Are the measured Ohms in a "regular" range?

Re: Tosh A68KJU96X Nanao MS8 not working - technical help needed

Just measured the yoke:
Yellow & Green: 5,7 Ohms
Red & Blue: 0,6 Ohms

Here's a picture of the shown line:


If I adjust the remote potis, the chassis shuts down the high voltage.

Re: Tosh A68KJU96X Nanao MS8 -> MS9 swap

The never ending story continues...😡 I've tried two different MS9's with the matching adapter cables. Absolutely nothing. No signs of life. Then I've tried again the old, probably faulty, Sanwa chassis. I've received nothing but a white horizontal line this time. Not even a flickering picture anymor...

Re: Tosh A68KJU96X Nanao MS8 -> MS9 swap

It was plugged in of course, just removed it to get the monitor out. It doesn't make any difference unfortunately.

Re: Tosh A68KJU96X Nanao MS8 -> MS9 swap

Have you plugged in the AC wires from the 15-pin AMP UP connector to the chassis? Take a pic of the chassis as it is wired now. Here we go, is everything plugged in correctly nem? Tried it again with the monitor out and theres really nö sign of voltage. I've tested the cab with another (faulty) cha...

Re: Tosh A68KJU96X Nanao MS8 -> MS9 swap

Oh boy, I need some further advice unfortunately...
I've attached the MS9 chassis with the adapter cable from PrincessPrinPrin to my tube and: nothing.
No neck glow, no static, absolutely dead.
Everything is plugged in, so where should I start? What could be the reason? Chassis dead?

Yes, I think it's reversed most likely

Re: Tosh A68KJU96X Nanao MS8 -> MS9 swap

Again, thanks a lot PrincessPrinPrin :)

The last thing that troubles me, is the 6-pin plug coming from the PSU:

The plug doesn't match unfortunately, could I just cut it away and solder the cable to the pins? Or does anyone know which female plug I need for the MS9 PCB?

Nanao MS8 picture issues / vertical collapse

So I finally had the time to really test my second Astro City cab, this time with a Nanao MS8 instead of a MS9. The tube is absolutely brilliant with no burn at all, but unfortunately the picture is kind of wobbling, really hard to get it stable with the HOLD poti of the remote board. Just now I was...

Need a polish recommendation for AC bezel

My two AC bezels need a bit of polish. Unfortunately I'm totally unsure which product I need for my task. Hard wax auto polish? Plastic polish? Could anyone give me a recommendation before I Ruin my bezels with the wrong polish?
Would be happy for any Amazon link. :)
