  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Hello, I am new to building an arcade cabinet.  I bought a used cabinet that had a monitor in it already but i can't find what the type it is.  I bought a VGA to CGA converter card to connect it to my pc but the pin connector on the monitor is wrong. Looking at other monitors online it looks like i maybe missing a part?  I can't find a serial number that pulls up online. I have included pictures.  Can anyone help?

well its missing the chassis
so now you need to work out what was originally in there

judging by the rotation coil and other connectors it could have been a wei ya 3129a or a rodotron 666a

all guess work,what you really need to do is get the impedence and inductance readings of the deflection yoke as that is critical

Thanks for the help.  I think I'm just going to pull the tube out and put in a new LCD.
