CGA to VGA issue
« on: August 05, 2019, 08:21:43 pm »
I have a CGA to VGA switcher for a JAMMA game in a cabinet. Everything has been fine with it for over a year but all of the sudden itís displaying ďout of rangeĒ. I did some research and some have suggested to simply hit the ďAutoĒ button. Doing so will switch inputs and find the correct one. Well, thatís not working. I also canít do it manually because I cannot see the menu. Has anyone run into this problem? What exactly IS the problem? Is the resolution on the monitor too high for the JAMMA? Any ideas to correct this and prevent it from occurring again?

Iíve considered getting a TV and converting it to HDMI. Would I have the same issue as I am with the monitor?

sounds like the converter is faulty or voltage to converter is missing
