MS Pac Man screen needs some help
« on: June 24, 2006, 08:06:14 pm »
I am clueless on real arcade monitors.  I got a MS Pacman and it worked OK for a few days.  When I turn it on the screen is shifted.  Here are a few pics if someone can point me in the right direction to fix this.





Thanks for any help

Original WG 4600 monitor?

Re-seat the daughter cards and connectors on the monitor itself first.
Not a technician . . . . just a DIY'er.

I let it sit for 15 minis or so and it looks fine again.  I will re-seat the cards and see if it comes up clean.

Not a monitor issue, that's a PCB issue.  Moving to Arcade Misc.
