Atari Pole Position CGA to VGA conversion
« on: November 25, 2019, 07:23:57 am »
Does anyone have experience changing monitor out for a cga to VGA converter to a LCD screen.  When I wired it all up, the screen flickers, I tried two different lcd screens with same result.  Appreciate any help

This is a sign from God. Put a CRT back in there before a plague of locusts descends upon us.

Some of those cheap converter solutions will do that...Most likely upgrade to a little better and you are golden.

Do you have a recommendation for the converter?  Could it be the clamp settings?

Well normally I use this one, but let it be known Jenn is not reviewing it here, and that's not me who reviewed it on their site, (But secretly just between us it is pretty awesome  ::)) https://na.suzohapp.com/products/monitors/49-2727-00 ...However you really should look into fixing the original monitor like Mike said first, If you can.
