Just watched the movies....be sure not to touch there ! Smiley

Oeps, you already answered my question. Must you never touch that thing or only now that it caught fire.

Thus both side of the cable where one side is the anode cap and the other side is the flyback unit are a no-touch?

So, if you disconnect the power to the monitor, does "the rest" of the machine start up ? That is, does it "play blind" ?

Will hopefully try to check it tomorrow.

Reboot, as long as you don't put your hand around the anode cap (the rubber cap) on the CRT you will be just fine.

But what about the other side of the cable of the anode cap (where it flashes in the video) Can you touch that side or the cable which end in the anode cap?

Is the flyback unit you mentioned earlier an easy thing to swap?

oh no, now that I think of it, you have to discharge the monitor to get the anode cap of the monitor else you can't swap the flyback unit. stupid me  oppps

Something else. I red somewhere on klov that the 3d printed gears I got from TravisH are NOT to be used with the original springs because those are too strong and will damage the 3d printed gears.

(I think TravisH himself had mention it on his sell page on klov).

Too bad because I had bought an original spring to complete mine and had put them in my now broken 2nd outrun. That steering wheel feels much nicer than my 1st unit where I have put the new springs in which came with the gears. It feels too loose to my taste.

Have others bought those replica gears and springs from TravisH? How do you feel about those springs?
Don't get me wrong, I like TravisH service but only too bad about those weaker springs.

sorry for the delay but here are the clips of the monitor problem



Haven't had the chance to look further into it, but thanks for all the reaction  Smiley

Reboot I may have a monitor for you at eurocade.

Thanks, hopefully there is nothing else wrong with it so a temporarily monitor swap will make it possible that the 2nd outrun deluxe will be attending RGE/Eurocade 2014 also.

On that note, I don't know how to set the game on freeplay. I presume some dipswitch settings but I don't have the hardware thing that you guys put outside the cab to simulate the coins input. (don't know how it is called, I want one!)

Do I need to put a moisture absorber in the cab by the monitor or is that a bad thing to do?
I would say: don't do that if it's the kind of moisture absorber that's filling itself with water and that you have to empty regularly.
Big chances are either you'll forget to empty it or, like me: totally forget that it's inside the cab when you'll move it  arrow that's bad, really badů
That stuff ain't water it's really acid and will damage every metal parts it touches + your hands.

Sounds just like me, I always forget those things, so a no-go for me then.

Mmmm, maybe I can integrate that in my workshop Smiley

How hard is it to swab the entire monitor on a OR deluxe ? maybe we can temporarily put in another 25" ?

About the shifter on the other OR Deluxe: I think you will need to exchange two wires reboot Smiley

The sticker is right and so is the position of the stick so it must be two swapped wires for low and High Smiley

The screws that holds the frame are in a tight spot at the front so you must somehow open the front also to get those screws out I think. (dare not to do it myself at the moment, don't know what can be touched and what not around a monitor)

The shifter cable has indeed been put on wrong when I put it back in place (dumb mistake caused by hurry  Cheesy)

Have made a movie of it will upload it later.
Swapping the monitor could be a solution to get it working on time for RGE 2014 but i also didn't hear the game music so hopefully the pcb isn't fried also, then a monitor swap won't help either.

The bigger question is how did it got broken? Is my garage too humid or too cold or did it break because i have moved it around.
Haven't played it for a year. (must a cab be on regularly?)

Do I need to put a moisture absorber in the cab by the monitor or is that a bad thing to do?

Is it a bad thing to power the cab on again, now that I now that the monitor is broken (can it do more damage to other parts)?

So not a simple problem then  Sad

A burning smell came out of the back. 1st time on, i saw a vertical line on the leftside of the monitor. Later when i tried it again nothing on screen anymore only flashes and crackle sounds at the back. So more things are burned i think.

Can you RGE guys organize a workshop Howto discharging a monitor/howto work savely with a monitor at the comming meeting?

Would help me alot and many others aswell i think. (most feared thing to do as an noob in this hobby)

Whooh, more than a year already, time flies.

Tried my outruns today and *bummer* one of the two wouldn't start  Sad
No screen and sound of the game only a crackle sound which came from the back of the monitor.

Flashes comes of the other end of the anode cap (red arrow)

Is this a simple problem or a difficult one?

Whoo, another Outrun Deluxe Sitdown for sale at a 'Kringloop winkel' (2nd hand shop) which means they got it for free because the former owner threw it away!


Looking good.

Sorry, oppps

Have one myself but it has a fault that it's moving to one side, don't recall to which side when playing. Placed it in the back of the garage. Need to look at it this year, hopefully  Smiley

Any hints on where to look to fix the problem?
27  General Chat / 'Business' Area : Buy/Sell/Trade / Re: Cabs on ebay on: February 16, 2014, 11:28:42 PM
Are yours in similar condition ? The one on ebay looks very nice and is working 100%

don't think so, chair and backsides need paint job , but I don't mind enough to do something about it yet.
haven't played it back when it was new so don't know if everything works 100% as it suppose to be, but I think it does.

Would love to host one of your Outruns @RGE/Eurocade 2014 SmileySmileySmiley

if you guys can get it there and bring it back I don't mind lend it to you. I myself can't get it there.

Holy shit, that is a bargain !!!!

And it's working 100% !!! We need this in Holland !!! Wink

It is! in my garage, 2 of them.   Grin
I'm soo happy I found them, only con. is their size or rather the size of my garage.
Almost no more room for other cabs.  Cry

However, the top-PCB repair guys that I know never use them, I guess they know what they are doing....

That's the problem, I don't  Smiley

Indeed every movie I see most just grab the pcb's everywhere and touch the chips etc with bare hand, but when I read an article they always say to look out where you touch the pcb because of static electricity.
So very confusing for a noob, theoretically look out where to grab, but in real life just touch and grab almost everywhere, no problem.  Huh? confused
