Tech: Using Toshiba Pure Flat Chassis (D29C051) with Sanwa PFX Trisync Tube

Hey everyone- I was able to pick up two Toshiba Pure Flat Tri Sync chassis recently, both supposedly in working condition. I currently own two Sanwa PFX monitors (Namco USA stock). One of the two has a color purity issue, and I am hoping to use the Toshiba Pure Flat chassis instead. My friend sent m...

Blast City Mono Audio Amp Problem

Hey everyone- Does anybody know why the mono section of my Blast City audio amplifier dies so easily? I had the original amp die about 6 months ago, I figured it was due to old age. I swapped it out with an identical model 3 replacement and all was good. Last week, out of no where, the mono audio wa...

Re: Capcom Status 25

That looks to be a "coin lockout solenoid". They engage and physically block more coins from being added when a jam is detected. You can run the machine without one for sure.

Re: Faulty Sanwa PM1755C PFX-46T

-update- I concluded the HOT was bad on the chassis, since I had horizontal frame collapse. I sourced an NTE replacement from a local supplier, slightly higher on amps. I installed the HOT, no difference regarding the frame collapse. Gave up on trying to fix it and decided to send it to Allgood USA ...

Sanwa PFX - static noise in 15hz

Hi everyone- I recently installed one of my PFX monitors into my Astro 2 cabinet. In 15hz mode, there is some static noise over the raster. There is like a wave-like pattern that is faint, but pretty darn annoying. Its more noticable on some pcb's than it is others. Now, I have another PFX installed...

Faulty Sanwa PM1755C PFX-46T

My Sanwa PFX is experiencing what appears to be horizontal frame collapse - all I am receiving is a thin beam of light down the center of the monitor. While testing a faulty pcb the monitor squealed while trying to sync to the signal and all I got was garbage on the screen. A few moments later "pict...

Re: Boot or Original : Post original/bootleg PCB photos here

There's lots of speculation going on regarding the Progear USA version, as well as how CPS2 boards function. Let me clear a few things up. First off, that Blue Progear is 1000% original Capcom. I know this for fact as I had one (part of a full kit) with hand-written eprom labels. Towards the end of ...

Re: Bubble Bobble - Screwed Graphics

I have a co-worker w/ a Bubble Bobble cabinet exhibiting the same exact fault! His cab has original Bubble Bobble wiring unfortunately rather than a jamma adapter. It also has an ANCIENT power supply. I'm suspecting the PSU is the problem, however I can't take the PCB back to my cabs and test as I d...

Re: CPS3 Loading Issue

When the CPS3 loads a game and freezes, one of three things is going on.

*Bad CD
*Bad CD Drive
*Bad memory simm

9 outa 10 times I fixed the issue by changing the simms.

Yeah my collection is pretty much always in a changing state lol I keep a few "cornerstone" games but the rest I swap out on a pretty regular basis.

Re: System 246 extra buttons

Blinking LED = voltage problem. Measure your voltages with the 246 running.

As for Fighting Jam, this was actually intended to be used with the Capcom I/O. Any JVS I/O that supports 6 buttons will work fine, but Capcom intended you use their hardware (according to the manual).

Re: Your first arcade game played/or the one that got you hooked

My first arcade experiences for me are mostly fuzzy memories. Growing up I had a mini-golf with a nice gameroom pretty close to home. We went there at least 5 times a year. From what I can remember, this is what stands out the most from my childhood World Heroes 2... specifically the magician dude w...

Re: Getting rid of tar and nicotine

What I generally do is discharge the tube and remove the chassis. For the chassis, I remove all the mounting components so its just a bare PCB, and clean it in the sink with my sprayer (just like a game PCB). For the tube, I brush off what I can with a paint brush, and finish up using a light cleane...

Ah, so just a case of swapping the jumper to the connection next to it? That will be 15khz then? Should that sort it? :think: :) Thanks bud. Yes, if the monitor came form a model 3 cabinet, then the video was set for 24khz. You need to simply move the 24khz jumper harness to the pin-header directly...

Re: ZOMG!!!! Sanwa PFX Service Menu!

WOW! Thanks to neokoen, I was able to guess and figure out how to access the PFX's service menu :D

Hold degauss while booting (4th button on the remote board)
While holding degauss, enter the adjustment menu

ENJOY
