Monitor discharge tool.

Post by SailorLodestar » June 12th, 2019, 9:28 am

Back to my first time discharging a monitor. I didn't have to do it with my Sega Blast City because I was just moving the crt to clean inside the cab and it has a bleeder circuit. But now I have a Capcom impress, and astro city coming and I need to clean inside of both of them.

Will this do as a discharge tool?

I don't want to mess around with trying some homemade crap and killing myself.

You probably want to keep it simple:

Get a good insulated flat head screwdriver (you probably have this at home) and two aligator clips (good thick ones). Simply solder a heavy gauge wire connecting both clips, than put one on the screwdriver and the other on the metal plate connected to the chassis.

Simple and effective.
