Re: New Astro City Power Supply Queries

Cheers! That's really helpful to know - on both counts! :awe: My stepdown does indeed look like it's a proper 3 pin socket, with the rounded earth connection above the 2 power ones. So that's great.. I'll see if I can source a suitable mains cable to wire up :thumbupright: Guess I need to look out ...

Re: horizontal width coil, and other odd issues

How much did you pay for it if I may ask? Sorry I've not been following this thread for a bit, £130~£140 delivered is the answer you seek, so a lot! I've not got round to installing it yet. Steve at technotronic-dimensions seems a really nice guy, he's clearly frustrated at cheap poor quality Chine...

Re: Help w/ installing PC into Atomiswave SD

A few shots of my setup, it's pretty ghetto as it's my first cab :D I didn't get a shot of the IPAC as it's under the control panel but I cabled the buttons and sticks to the IPAC myself, easy enough job but wires everywhere, not sure on best way to JPAC tbh. I moved the VGA connector from its stock...

Re: Help w/ installing PC into Atomiswave SD

Yep, PC case wise I put in a "COOLER MASTER SILENCIO 352" which if you take the PCB mounting board out fits like a treat 8-)

I'm currently upgrading it from an old intel atom board to a Ryzen 3200G, I'll try and stick some pictures up over the w/e.

Re: Help w/ installing PC into Atomiswave SD

I just run a normal PC in mine with an i-pac for the controls, PC connected via the cab - VGA set to run at 640x480, you can pick whatever emulator or front-end you like. For sound on mine I used an ancient set of 90's 2.1 speakers, I binned off the old speakers and kept the sub, spliced the speaker...

Re: horizontal width coil, and other odd issues

Well I've got the part in my possession and it looks spot on, though it will take me a couple of weeks to get round to fitting it.

Re: horizontal width coil, and other odd issues

The saga continues, OK so today I thought to myself I'll put the original flyback in and hopefully it works, if so I'll just live with it as is and enjoy it for a few months before I bother to do anything else, well... It was filthy so I cleaned it up a bit as it kept getting black on my fingers, GO...

Re: horizontal width coil, and other odd issues

Tried the new flyback, the anode cap doesn't seem to plug in quite as easily and doesn't feel quite as flush (had a few attempts at re-seating it) Anyway fired it up and it's just making a loud pitched whine, doesn't seem to even fire up and play blind, tried to video it but the noise is being filte...

Re: horizontal width coil, and other odd issues

Yes unfortunately, there's an old video here, the "credit 00" will go entirely off the screen when it's a very bright background.

Re: horizontal width coil, and other odd issues

The problem is that you don't know for certain if the flyback is compatible. An incompatible flyback can damage other components on the chassis. The horseshoe layout of the pins is common. It unfortunately doesn't mean that the specs match. Well either way they can update their sales page compatibi...

Re: horizontal width coil, and other odd issues

The brown wire doesn't go to the degauss switch. The third pole of the switch is supposed to be empty. You need to find out where the other end of the wire connects to before making guesses on what the wire is for. As for the screen pumping on bright images, more than likely that's just the way the...

Re: horizontal width coil, and other odd issues

I thought the oversized screen might have been a simple case of the it being jumped to wide instead of normal/narrow, alas it's already on N :eh: I found this mind, "H.CENT CN702" http://chasethedevil.co.uk/img/H.CENT-CN702.JPG I've a feeling this will rotate the image though, I'll tinker with it on...
