fine by me, no problem, i never have any issues with sharing files.

Youre a life saver... I was going to give up on the project.  If you need any Nintendo part PLEASE contact me.

I suppose you don't need dimensions but if ever... tell me and I will measure them for you.

no, im going to have the cabinet CNC ed.  I have the pcb and bezel.  Just need the CP and marquee... Im hoping to find someone to scan them out for me.

Etienne McGyver has vectorized the marquee some years ago.
Awesome work!!!
He gave his file to me for repro on a plexi panel.
Ask him if he is OK to share.

After years of doing nothing, slow thinking, finding schematics etc... I finlly managed to understand why the screen was oversaturated in blue and colors wrong.
A few months ago, I decided I needed to remove the monitor PCB from the cab to try a cap kit before going to more exteeme ways such as rejuvenation or replacement etc...

I managed to find low res schematics of the Sanyo 20-DZC (monitor in a box) in Arcarc Xmission Radarscope schematics.
I also managed to find another monitor PCB and found something weird.

On my PCB in the RGB driver section the IC201 and neighbouring holes were equipped with components while this section was bare on the other one...
IC201 (a TTL 7400 chip) is not even on the Radarscope schematics.

I decided to have my PCB mirror the other one and the schematics and did a full cap kit at the same time...

And voilà, when put back in place, the monitor provided nice and vibrant colors for Space Firebird...
After 5 years the game is complete and plays perfectly.
A gret learning experience for me.

Looks more or less complete.

Tough decision for sure.
And not uncommon if you consider the overall "art" world...
Most great collectors want their cherished colletors' item (paintings, statues, coins, unique camembert boxes etc...) to go to a museum because they feel the museum will properly take care of them, after their death most of the time Smiley

Ah these consolettes, they look so nice : one of my grails!!!
Were they made specifically  for UK, Germany or Netherlands?
I never seem to see some of them in France.

Good luck with your restoration. I look forward to seeing this unit work.

The blue is still there but I have the impression it may come from the PCB rather than the monitor.
(when I start the game with the PCB unplugged the screen is black)
I have two spare untested Space Firebirds boards and hope  one  of the two will work and prove me right.
But first, I need to get to my storage area, in a few weeks unfortunately.

I recently managed to get a bunch of Sega Vic Dual PCB's and wanted to test them.
I know many people have converted their Sega cocktail to Jamma so if you have the original harness somewhere...
