Dragon's Lair / Space Ace / Cables and TV!
« on: October 09, 2007, 01:38:06 AM »
In answear to your question i think it is cable two, which on my tv it splits into two, the cables are very thin, originaly there were attached to the front fixing nuts that held the TV to the plastic case,  I have reproduced how the TV was before I transfered it to my Dragon's lair machine but the monitor cradel is steel as you know, I have for the moment attached both cables to one of the corners picture below so when you turn the machine on / off you get a small spark, discharge. I know this is wrong and I'm worried thaat i will damage the screen which takes time to replace. what to do

by the way the picture helps

Thanks again

Hi Darth!

As you will see on the Facebook link, I also installed a TV to replace the monitor that was once there. There are two ground cables that come from any TV that a re around the screen. In the original casing they are connected to the plastic case of the original TV, but now that it is in the dragon's lair cab where is the best place for those cable, I have attacthed them to the side of the steel case that holds TV, but i get a blue spark when I turn on and off my machine, if you have any info I would be greatfull.

Thanks again

I'm new on this board but I have checking site for a long-time. Darth! You have influenced me to repair my Dragon's lair machine, mine is an euro one with the Atari sticker on it, hope this is not cheeky but here's the link hope that link works? It took me six months getting all the bits together but she running great now. To everyone feel free to post you’re comments. One technical question when I replaced the Wells gardener for a TV I get a discharge spark from the TV's original grounding wires, I hooked them to one of the corners of the mounting brackets, can you suggest a better place to reduce the spark!

Thanks again for this site!
