Re: Naomi cab question No.532 - coin mech

I have cradles, coin mechs & credit boards..

You could also use a Coincontrolls C330 or C340 and do away with the credit board as the mech has it build in :)

Or hell just drop an S10 in there and fit a micro switch on the bottom of the cradle ala japanese style!

OP updated with instructions on how to connect to the PSU for power and to jamma for video.
I've never seen a flyback yet manufactured that way and also never seen a wei-ya like that.

Re: One for Grantspain or Ordyne

A Gti Club should be a U5000, most of the crt's (just about everyone I have ever seen) isn't too clever. I've got the luxury of a CRT Rejuvenator so I can get 80% of them looking ok again..

U2000 & U5000's are really bad for having crapped out CRT's

You're not discharging it to earth, you're discharging it to the chassis ground hence why the earth will make no difference.

Re: Wei-Ya on an MS8 not working properly!

It will work fine on your MS9, just not on the MS8..

Not sure where you bought it from but they obviously never test these things !

Re: Namco Point Blank gun issues

Check your gun cables, its a common fault that they brake and you get nothing but the trigger..

I would disconnect them from the machine and the gun and then meter the wires out..

Re: What's the worst a monitor or game has bit 'ya?

I've had more belts from monitors than I can remember, the heat sink for the mosfet on a Polo SMPSU is always a nice one at 350v DC. Apart from that I ended up at hospital with metal in my eye that came from referbishing a rusty coin door.. I could feel something in my eye and I could actually see i...

Re: Hanterex Monitor Issue

The MTC9000 and MTC9110 are very similar.. the 9110 is just a modified version for 25"

Look for dry joints on the neck board.. other than that my advice is take it to someone who knows there monitors..

Dont forget that these things can put you on your back even when powered off :)

Re: Hanterex Monitor Issue

It's probably an MTC9000 or an MTC900, neither suffer from bad capactiors in the colour circuits, you probably have a dirty or bad ajustment pot on the neck board..

Hell it may even just need setting up as the balance of the guns will change as the monitor gets older.

Re: I swapped my chassis for a tri-sync, but .....

those chassis have a very poor quality control and are very prone to dry solder joints,my bet is that there is an unsoldered component on the vertical output section-either aroung the tda 1745 or from the flyback you should carefully inspect the chassis for any suspect solder joints The problem is ...

Re: which chassis board would I need to trirez my Astro?

Just so you guys know. the standard Wei-Ya C3129A and Rodotron 666A will have width issues on the Nanao MS8, I modify all the chassis I sell when a customer has an MS8 Monitor..

You'll find you wont be able to get full width in 15khz on a lot of games unless the chassis is modified
