Re: Removing Impress Monitor

One other thing, best if there are two of you to lift the monitor out and also if you do it on your own lie the Impress on its back. Good luck and just make sure you don’t get caught on a cable. Thank you. Yeah, I wrapped a bunch of the detached cables so they hopefully don't get caught in anything...

Re: Removing Impress Monitor

Ok thanks. Yeah, I just found this video. https://www.hasntfiguredouthowtoembedyoutubeproperly.com/watch?v=YfQbdvB8GSM At 7:35. I got the psu out and those other cables disconnected so this neck board should be the last thing before I get the monitor out and can tackle this cigarette smell/staining....

The pcb on the end of the neck pulls off, it’s a socket that slides on to pins on the end of the tube.
Cool. I’ll take the psu out before continuing.

How does the pcb come come off? Does it twist in some direction? Does it slip off in some direction?

Just mind the neck.
Thank you.

So I got the anode cup out and disconnected some of the wires going from the tube to the chassis. How do I disconnect this board at the end of the neck? or do I just unhook the wires and leave it on?

Re: Removing Impress Monitor

The remote wires to the inside of the CP and is screwed down/ there are detachable pins there so I can take the monitor out and get the remote back in the original place. Just screw the remote in and replace the pins. Sort of uneasy about this monitor having no frame. I guess it's just gonna be sitt...

Removing Impress Monitor

So I took a leap of faith and bought a Capcom Impress from yanton on ebay. Of course, the cab is yellow as hell and makes high pitch wine when turned on. (Is that the psu or the monitor?) I want to take the monitor out to try de-yellowing the cab while I get it serviced. But It looks like the Chassi...

Re: Astro City Marquee light

It actually wasn’t the same as my blast city. It’s an 18 inch f15 T8 with FG-1E ballast started. So I got the light and a new starter for good measure but now I have a new problem. Whenever I secure the back plate of the Astro, the light goes out. Particularly if I press down on the left side of the...

Astro City Marquee

I'm looking for a digital layout or the dimensions for the paper that goes into the astro city marquee as I want to have a custom marquee printed for my astro and impress. Alternatively, I'll take suggestions on vendors to print for me. I know there was someone on the forum who does it but I think t...

Re: Adjusting Aero table color.

20+ year old chassis? I'd definitely get it serviced by a pro at this stage. Yeah it looks like I might be able to get the colors close now but the screen's not that bright and the picture has wavy warping some times after being turned on and off. Also, thanks for giving me the heads up about the y...

Aero table light type?

Shot in the dark, does anyone know what kind of bulb goes into the "videogame" sign on the Aero table speaker. Also, any idea where I can get replacement wiring for the light? If there are schematics for it, I can probably get someone to make it for me. https://c.tutti.ch/images/sega-aero-table-9563...

Re: Adjusting Aero table color.

So I've balanced the pots in all sort of ways. I just my four-player harness to match colors to my astro city. Now with red green and blue matched, certain browns are showing as black. Does anyone have advice or know of a guide on adjusting a 26 inch ms8? Maybe I do just need to send it out for repa...

Re: Adjusting Aero table color.

So I got an insulated screwdriver, and a glove and adjusted the pots on the side of the monitor. It looks like the monitor is actually incapable of rendering the full bar of red. I had to use the "bias" dials in conjunction with the gains in order to get the bars next to the end and the colors somew...

Adjusting Aero table color.

Doesn't this look like it's an issue that can be resolved by adjusting the rgb dials?

Also, any tips on adjusting the monitor? The aero table doesn't have a detached remote and I don't want to kill myself poking the monitor.

Re: Discharging astro city monitor

So now the color on my monitor looks off. Can my discharge attempt before cleaning the cab have something to do with that? What about the dent on the flyback in the picture?

Discharging astro city monitor

So I'm following this guide at 8:13 minutes in.

What happens if the anode cap doesn't come off? Does it matter? What should I do?
