Question about Classic Console Games

Open Question

Shorted monitor I have a Hunter K111 alignment machine with a monitor that is no good. I am not interested in having the monitor repaired again. I am looking for some information as to what kind of adapters would be necessary to change this over to a new style monitor. The monitor is hooked to the board with a 7 pin connector red, green, blue, black, yellow, orange, white. This machine is 22 years old so the monitor looks more like an old television set apart than anything else. Thanks for your Help.

Big buck hunter pro Sight is off


Try putting the sensor as close to the top or bottom of the screen as possible, if you haven't already. If your TV has a stand, you may want to put something underneath the sensor to get it closer to the actual screen. Then recalibrate the sights by resetting the game or selecting the calibration option in the menu (if there is one).

Cleanliness is next to fixiness


Don't throw away that classic console yet. Repairing it might be much easier than you think. I'm constantly amazed by how tough classic video game consoles can be. Early Nintendo and Sega consoles are surprisingly long-lived if they are treated properly. Unfortunately, many of these classic consoles have accumulated twenty years of dust, dirt, grime, and god knows what else. Many such consoles can be restored to working order simply by taking them apart, cleaning them from the inside out, then putting them back together again. Always remember to unplug your electronics before you take them apart. Safety first. It seems too good, but it's true; a simple cleaning can repair many ailments affecting classic game consoles.

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO FIX A FRUITMACHINE. WHEN YOU PUT IN MONEY IT JUST DROPS BACK OUT AGAIN


It's either 1 of 2 things. The coin mechanism or bill acceptor is malfunctioning, it will need to be repaired, if you can't see what's going on with it by looking. 2 - The machine itself has a problem, and is telling the coin mech/bill validator the machine is out of order, and not to accept money for this reason.

I recently purchased a Terminator 2 - Judgement Day arcade game. Is there a special way I should transport this? Can I lay it down, or should I stand it up? Can I just unplug it from the wall, move it,...


Check that everything is tightly in place before trying to transport your machine. Lay it on its side or back, and make sure you pad all sides and secure it. When you get it home, everything should work fine immediately on plug in.

Good luck!

The problem comes from both a faulty cassette and a faulty cassette deck.
Hopefuly both problems have been identified and they can be repaired using new parts.
You can contact me by email if you're still interested as I produced these parts (but I have a small quantity).

I need someone to install a 60-1 pcb


If the arcade machine is Jamma and the 60-1 board is Jamma then it should be as easy as unplugging the old card and plugging in the new card. The Jamma bards plug into a dual row 28 pn connector. Check out http://www.jammaboards.com/jcenter.html for Jamma board details and to see if your current machines are really Jamma compliant. If it were me, I would verify the supply voltages on the connector before you install the new board.

Capcom Midway 1943 - big old arcade game


As silly as it sounds, you can probably just open the cabinet and flip the monitor over to get the picture in the correct orientation. Quite frequently arcade machine operators change out the system boards in their cabinets to keep up with the times. If they have a cabinet with an older, less desirable game in it, they'll swap it out for something newer in hopes of earning a few more quarters each week. Once in awhile they'll swap a game that has a vertically oriented monitor (like your 1943 cabinet) to something that's horizontally oriented (like Street Fighter for example). How do they pull this off? They simply open the cabinet and turn the monitor in the correct direction so the players can see it.

If you decide to turn your monitor, here's what to look out for:
First, unplug the arcade machine to avoid electrical shocks.
Monitors are somewhat fragile, and can be extremely dangerous. There is a coil of unshielded copper wire near the neck of the tube that stores charges in excess of 10,000 volts (even when the machine is unplugged and powered down), and can severely injure/kill you if you touch it. I've personally worked with thousands of monitors and haven't had an incident yet. Odds are you'll be perfectly fine, but just be aware that there are dangerous parts back there.

The monitor should have 9 wires going to it broken down into 2 bundles. The power bundle will normally have 3 wires (green, black and white) and will be a thicker gauge wire than the other set. These almost always have a white plastic connector that makes it simple to disconnect them.
The second set of wires will be the image signal wires. These will be a smaller gauge of wire and they'll be red, blue, green, white, yellow and black (in most cases). These wires also have a white plastic connector, but it's often times plugged directly into the monitors main circuit board (or chassis). Just pull the wires off of the chassis making sure you don't damage any of the components (or yourself!)

Once you've disconnected the wiring, it's simply a matter of finding the bolts that hold the monitor in place, removing them (along with the monitor) and flipping it over. The monitor should go in just as easily in either direction. Reconnect the wires, fire it up and off you go!

Good luck!

Atari super sprint


If your monitor isn't displaying any picture there may be numerous issues. First, Super Sprint is an old (made in 1986) game, and odds are the monitor hasn't been replaced since the game first rolled off the assembly line. There's a good chance that the monitor has just given up. Unfortunately there is no "Bulb" to replace. You'll have to replace the entire monitor. Monitor repair/replacement can be dangerous and it is recommended that you hire a professional repair person to do this for you. New monitors should cost you between $175 - $300 (depending on the original monitor size, which I believe is 25" for this game).
Good luck!
