Hi everyone! I just joined after hearing about this forum from arcade-projects. I've been collecting arcade machines for a couple years now and have been pretty self sufficient as far as upgrades and repairs go. But recently one of my arcade machine's CRT monitor died and I've taken my first step into the world of CRT repairs. I heard there are some CRT experts here and I'm hoping to learn more about diagnosing and repairing CRT monitors. Aside from that I really like rhythm games and shmups. I look forward to learning new things and meeting new people while here.

Hello,

I recently acquired a Naomi Universal and ran into your wiki while researching monitors. (currently without) I was previously unaware of this forum but am very excited to be here. Another 80's/90's kid who fought for Sega during the console wars but have only recently gone full arcade goblin mode and very excited to restore my first cab. :awe:

hi. I am a beginner in arcade living in Korea.
Recently, I bought a taito egret2 with difficulty as my first cabinet.
Although I am a beginner, I am planning to restore as much as possible.
So, I joined the forum to learn a lot of information.
I look forward to your kind cooperation. thank you.

Hi guys.
First post. Glad to be here.

Had a friend recommend I check out this forum for help as he said it's dedicated to candy cabs.

I've got two. An Astro City and a Blast City with an aero city CRT in it.

He helped me a ton in getting my Aero City up and running last year but has since moved. So I'll need to start getting my knowledge up here by reading and asking questions.

It seems I can't post new threads yet so not sure how long until I can so I can share my struggle with my blast in order to get help. But glad to be here. Thanks.

Hi Everyone

My name is Charlie, i'm from Bristol in the UK.

I've recently gotten into CRTs again and had forgotten how amazing 16 and 32 bit consoles can look!

Which has reminded me, I always planned to pick up an Astro City for home :)

Thanks!
