Re: Anyone own a Jaleco Pony III

Cross fingers to have a monitor in great condition. I own an Irem Madonna and I had the bad luck to use a faulty setpdown transformer which **** the monitor chassis... Monitor in the Pony III is a nanao MS-8 25FAR, the same as in Irem Madonna's and Taito Canary's and it's very, very rare and uncommo...

From the pics it seems it has 8 button autofire and 2 firing speeds, 15/s an 30/s. Someone with electonic skills could try to build it or ada...

Re: Irem Madonna. Help

No luck yet, today I've gone to buy new fuses. Although I visited 3 shops in my town none of them had 125V3A or 125V2A or can order them, so all of them recommended to try with 250V3A and 250V2A fuses instead... bought one of each and tested... but there's no response from the monitor. It is as dead...
