Re: Blast City PSU recap necessary?

If you have never taken apart your PSU, I'd recommend doing so. The amount of dust will both amaze and disgust you. I recapped mine and changed the fan while in there. Super easy job to do.

Re: Darksoft's CPS2 Multikit Tech Support Thread (No Killing B-Boards!)

I hope I don't catch any crap resurrecting this thread, but I'm not finding the answers I need. So I got my Darksoft kit and it's installed on a revision 7 board with a G PAL. I'm using a 4GB card with Avalaunch files. Here are the problems I am having: 1. The Avalaunch files didn't have the D&D gam...

Plastic Film on MS9 Monitor Tube?

Probably addressed before, but could not find...but my MS9 looks like it has some sort of film on the tube screen. It looks all scuffed up and nasty. When the monitor is on, I can't see the scuffs and the picture is great. So what's the purpose and is it needed? If not, how can I remove it?

MS9 and 2930 Tube

Do both of these monitors use the same type of tube? My 2930 tube is dead, but might have access to a MS9 tube. I could always swap the yoke over if the MS9 yoke does not have the same resistance.

CPS2 Cart Selection for Darksoft Multi

So let me say first that I have advertised for a suicided cart for this the past 2 weeks on the KLOV and Neo forums...with no hits. So I am considering using my X-Men: Children of the Atom Asia B-board. It's a revision 7 with PAL F chip. It's an original, working board on a fresh battery and I reall...

Ditching the Astro City/NAC Power Supply

So I already have a thread going for some help getting a power supply to work and I just received 2 more power supplies today that blow fuses instantly. Not to mention I had a Astro a few years back that kept blowing fuses. In fact I traded it for a gutted, ugly Defender cab out of anger. So here I ...

Re: New Astro PSU Voltage Problems

I tried it again with a PCB hooked up, but still the same results. Just fluctuating and I can hear clicking through the speakers. Obviously the PCB is not getting enough voltage consistently to boot properly. I also tested the adjustment pot and it seems to work. I checked for resistance at the min ...

Re: New Astro PSU Voltage Problems

I did not. I'm testing at the JAMMA connector. Do these PSUs act funny without a load? I've tested HAPP PSUs this way before and never had the fluctuating.

New Astro PSU Voltage Problems

First post besides my intro. I was given a mostly stripped New Astro City by another member on the forums (thanks again). After many nights cleaning, sanding, fiberglass and painting (Krylon touch) and gathering the missing parts, I got a complete cab. Unfortunately the PSU I picked up (400-5198-01Y...

Re: Introduce yourself here!

New here, but been collecting cabs since 2004. Currently own 2 Blast Citys, a Neo Candy and an Astro City (and many classic US cabs). I'll be looking to you all to help me get my Astro up n' running. I got it all back to together, but the power supply is giving me problems.
