Re: The CRT problem.

LCD machines for me is not "arcade". I'm talking about the feeling of playing a game knowing that it is running on a hardware more powerful than what was available for the home at the time....in a 20"+ RGB monitor, while we had **** composite only TVs for our consoles.... or best case scenario: if y...

I think its 28" for mt8 A66,
A66 means a 26" tube, Aero City Mitsubishi tube is A66, afaik Taito Mt-8 use a 25" monitor, Nanao Ms8-25FTB/FAR or Toei can't remember the model, but you never know for sure, its like with Irem Madonnas, some came with 25" monitors while others with 26".

Re: MS8 shaky image

Yes.....I preffer no to go changing caps blindly, i.e: doing cap kits, it would be better for me to just replace those that are broken , so first I'll need to find where the problem is. I have been told by the previous owner, the guy who "serviced" the chassis, that I must check the following: -EW c...

Re: Wei-Ya C31291A / samsung a68kvl74x02

So, what is the tube that is compatible with the MS9 chassis? samsung a68kvl74x01 or a68kvl74x02 ???

According to what has been posted here, the a68kvl74x02 might work by swapping the yoke but the curvature is not the same, then a68kvl74x01 is a straight swap, is this correct?

Re: MS8 shaky image

A little update: I have been checking for burnt resistors and ceramic caps but found nothing, also tried reflowing some suspicious solder joints but that didn't do anything either, I have not done anything to this chassis since then , and I had not turned on the monitor for weeks until today, and on...

Re: Looking for a New Astro

From my experience both Astros use the same speaker horns, but the ugly Astro (NAC) puts them inside those protruding plastic boxes which gives them more "omph" or boombox effect if you preffer, I have also seen someone somewhere (I think it was in one of the facebook arcade groups) who 3D printed e...

Re: MS8 26SG focus issue

As you said, this does not worry me too much, I can wait playing on another cab while this one heats up..I just wanted to know what may be causing this, maybe the same filth that grows within the neckboard socket pins gets to the innards of the tube.

Re: MS8 26SG focus issue

You should not try a ms8 29 or ms9 chassis on a Mitsubishi 26" due to the yoke not match.. Any way if it is not the chassis then is the tube and on my experience a tube rejuve do not any reliable results on those tubes (Both 26" mitsu and toshiba 29") so you should replace the tube .. yeah sorry, i...

Re: MS8 26SG focus issue

You talk about the socket on the neckboard? I don't think that is the problem because I have tried with 5 different chassis and it does the same with all them, x4 MS8-29 and a MS9, these chassis work fine on other tubes, picture is sharp right from the start. As I said, the contrast and brightness i...

basically on first start up it takes 5 min to get a perfect sharp picture . if the cabinet is turned off and on again it maintains the same level of focus but the problem recurs if turned off for a few hours. And what if this same problem happens when trying with different chassis but same tube?? w...
