Well... 2 times bad luck today
when i was creating a creative plug to enter in the original connector, i broke the connector
the plastic was so fragile after all those years, it cracked when i tried to enter the nails that fitted last week..
anyway, i cutted the connector off and connected the wires straight to the new wires that came out of the neck.
(first i folowed them and labeled them in the correct way)
Then i took a piece of cable and connected it to my stepdown converter since it was set on 115 volts..
I waited and waited and nothing happened.
I could only hear that highpitch noise that you listen from a tv also.
So i removed the neckpart and soldered them again to see if i maybe missed a connection, or if one came loose while casting it.
This time i tested it again without casting it, but the same result, no neckglow, and only the high pitch noise..
So it was two times bad luck, 1 broken neckconnector and one fix that did not work
Well at least i gave it eveything i could, but i am affraid the tube is gone..
I dont know if you got another black - white monitor, then you can transplant the plexi with the art.
Or if its true what andre says (that it delivers component video) you can hack a tv which has a component input in there.
I guess it does not matter if its a color tv, since the board outputs black and white.
just find something with the same tubesize i guess..
Sorry i did'nt succeed, even the real macgyver fails sometimes
