Capcom Big Blue(?) - requires work

Post by DevilMish » December 13th, 2019, 6:32 pm

Hi,

Need a little help with an eBay machine. It seemed like a good deal so I went for it but need some advice from the community!:

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 2888349165

Good price? How much work do we think is required other than Jamma harness and potentially marquee?

Supposedly "the CRT needs fixing. Parts are included. Might need some soldering. Needs a game, but connections are all there."


Thanks in advance

I think you did good.

Monitor is a Hantarex Polo. Probably has a Hantarex PSU as well.

Get a cheap jamma board, plug it in, see what happens. Most likely monitor will need fixing. I don't see why you would need to get a new harness for it. The original harness is great quality. Just double check the connections.
