    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

    If this is a CRT type of arcade video game, it most likely uses an old-school flyback transformer, and a bunch of electrolytic capacitors. Check for cold or dry solder joints on all the boards (with the unit unplugged), and retouch any suspicious ones; especially the pins on the flyback, the CRT neck board/socket (if applicable) and in the power supply sections, where heat may be generated. Also check to see if the filaments light up in the CRT neck. It's also a good idea to check the caps in the power, horizontal and video sections as well - look for bulging or ruptured electrolytics, and/or burned resistors. Some arcade games (e.g. Asteroids) use a HV diode rated at around 25-30kV (it is located near the flyback and may have an insulated plug at each end). These can crack, short or simply go open circuit producing a "no display" symptom. If your game has this, check it before condemning the flyback or caps (the diode also doubles as a HV fuse). Do all the basic checks/visual inspections that you can thoroughly first before going any further with repair and/or restoration. It could be something really simple and easy to fix and/or obtain parts for (at reasonable cost if necessary).

    I purchased an xbox 360 arcade 2nd hand, then purchased a bunch of old games that don't work on this model. i then puchased a 250gb harddrive but am still not sure how to update the console to be able to...

    Who exactly is "They"? By my understanding, the X-box 360 Arcade is NOT backwards compatible, meaning it cannot play original x-box games. The only one i know of that can is the X-Box 360 elite.

    Now then, if you go online to the X-box live Marketplace, they have quite a few original x-box games available for download, but you have to pay for them :( These downloaded versions WILL work with the 360 Arcade
