Re: Cannot get a RGB > VGA converter to work.

Turned out the VGA connector on my other TV was busted. This was easily resolved by trying a smaller LCD. I need to fix that TV's connector.

Cannot get a RGB > VGA converter to work.

I rewired a megalo 410. A game is playing blind. RGB Cable R, G, B, GND , Sync.

I connect the vga to my vizio lcd as a test before I get a projector for this.. No dice. Doesn't give me any input signal. Any idea what could be causing this?

Re: Toei A292 Half Screen issue

I dumped my other cap kit, got a new one and installed it today. Monitor is running half screen, played a tiny bit of Xmen vs SF, and I also have that IC coming. I'll install that and see where I'm at. I have a good feeling..

Re: Toei A292 Half Screen issue

Well it isn't the end of the world. I guess I could always send it off if things don't look up. I'd love to have this cab working again.

Re: Toei A292 Half Screen issue

I probably did. There's caps left to do. Two of the ones are 1000 uf caps. There's also this small pcb with two 47 uf's to do.. This monitor was originally running the A292s, but that chassis is gone now, I replaced it with a standard A292. I also recapped it with the kit I yanked off the failed A29...

Toei A292 Half Screen issue

I have a issue with a Toei A292. It's the chassis for a MVS U4. I got this replacement chassis, I did a cap kit with what I had on hand. I got about 6 to go to have replaced them all. Color looks good, but I have the same problem this poster had. Half a screen.. https://forum.arcadeotaku.com/viewtop...

Jaleco Pony Mark IV Sigma Chassis Sound (GMK-29FJ2)

I have this issue, I've seen people post it could be a transformer, but I just don't know. I've made contact with transformers and noticed no change. One of the transformer cases is loose. When I start the cab it has this high pitched whine issue on start up. The screen looks nice, but the screen is...

Re: Megalo 410 CP Mount Restoration

This machine is now a fully functional dedicated dreamcast cab. The work was monumental, I can't begin to describe how much work it was. It is still being worked on, but everything from here is easy street.

One thing I need to pick up is a megalo 410 marquee. Just the marquee itself, I have the plastic cover for it, just no marquee. =/

Re: MS9 29A picture issues

Look at the chassis pots carefully, see if they are making good solder contact. If not that, ask around and make sure a few of caps you replaced weren't silk screened incorrectly. Sometimes they aren't right, I am not familiar with that board, but ask around. Try and get a close up shot of someone e...

Re: Hitachi GMK Pony Mark IV won't power

Flyback has no visible damage either. But I just dont get why when I plug it into the cab plug internally it will not power. Think maybe the caps in the cabs switcher are bad and it's preventing it? I can't see how it'd play blind without it working. Funny enough, the cabs light doesn't work either....
