MONITOR powerup 'DELAY'

(1/1)

Daredevil666:
I know this probs sounds really silly but I want my monitor to power up after a delay of around 10-15 seconds after my cab is switched on... any ideas on how to do it??

I want my cab to be authentic as poss - as in the first thing you see on power-up is MAME 'OK' screen.

Thanks!

You could use a solid state relay with an on delay.  The delay time is usually setable by an external resistor. Only disadvantage is the $30 to $40 dollar cost.  

Alternately you could rig something up with a 555 timer and a mechanical relay from RS.  Depends on you electronics tinkering capability.

Thanks for that - most prob will use old TV that takes enough time to warm up... ;)
