Check to see if you can find horizontal and vertical sync controls. These would typically be small knobs or screwdriver adjustments on the edge of a circuit board or at the back of the monitor chassis. Try adjusting the vertical sync....rotate the knob back and forth two or three times to "clean" it...then adjust to see if you can get the picture to settle down.

Aging electrolytic capacitors are the most common cause of symptoms like this. You'll need the assistance of an experienced electronics technician to find the exact source of the problem.

How to fix an arcade screen on a big buck hunter safari machine?

If the screen appears discolored in the area where it does not shoot then it is possible that you have a degaussing problem( which should be fixed with turning off the machine for a half hour and then back on) or a loose shadow mask in the monitor( which you can do nothing about). Assuming that is not the case then try turning up the brightness and contrast beyond normal and see if it registers. The easiest way to do that is in the tracking screen. If turning up the controls works then you most likely have a bad capacitor in the monitor or on the circuit board. Another possibility would be background light bouncing off the screen. Turn out the lights in the room and try again. Good luck

My MsPacman/Galaga upright has power but screen is black(blank)

I'm assuming this game cabinet was built in the 80's. More than likely, the monitor is an Electrohome GO-7. If this is the case, replace capacitor C511 on the monitor board. It has baked open due to old age. Usually, capacitor kits can be purchased for around 10 bucks, so you might want to replace all the caps on the board at ths time. Worst case scenario would be that the Flyback transformer has smoked (usually you'll see a crack on the side of the transformer), causing the horizontal output transistor to cook and also the smaller of the two pigtail fuses to blow. In this case, you would have to replace the Flyback transformer, the horizontal output transistor, and the small pigtail fuse associated with it. Remember to always discharge the second anode( the suction cup thingy on the side of the tube). It will hold a substantial charge on it. Also, if the small pigtail fuse is blown, you will need to discharge the large cap on the monitor board, or else it will knock you on your rear-end when you try to replace the blown fuse. Hopefully, you'll will only have to replace one cap. C511. If your game does not have an electrohome monitor, I can still help, if you provide the manufacturers info, such as Well Gardner model 7204, or something like that. Good luck!

My AOC 17" CRT monitor displays large veiw on DOS & some PC DOS games where the top portion is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

sounds like you need to run a screen config wizard. If you have a true Nvidia driver you can do this. Otherwise, re-download the driver from the main website
and it'll work for you
