Hmm, in desperate need of a new arcade game.


Let's see what Swedens largest selling site has to offer.


Ok, found something. Made a Quick call and haggled like hell. Preliminary deal was made. Brought the usual food.


Small cab. Is my beloved car big enough?


Naa, took the other car.


110 km later, the deal was made.


What could it be?


Even a arcade gamer needs food.


Finally home


Hmm, the screen needs some tweaking and definately a degauss.


All in all, in good shape. Everything works like a dream, except for the screen. Will paint the sides and add some sideart. Can't get all for 150...

Great!

Excellent ! Smiley

Is that a Nissan Micra ?

If you turn back the Screen pot on the HVT (fly-back) I be the screen will already look a lot better.

If you're going for a restore you'll need some "fuji" buttons with LEDs to replace the one's currently on there. The CPO looks very good shape still !

What I like of the Centi cabaret is that it still has a 19" monitor...

Edit: Can you see the pixx properly? On My IPad 25% on the right is missing?

Thanks guys. Yes, a really great game. @level42: Fuji buttons. Yes, saw that too. A friend of mine has one as well equipped with these. But i saw that one of them was connected, hanging loose underneath the panel. + one similar to the others. Wow, a 4 player Centipede!

Done some tweaking and it's alot better but far away from perfect. Couldnt find contrast, brightness or focus At first but found the two first connected with long cables, with their own pots just below the control panel. + there was a button with Degauss. Unfortunately the Degauss wasnt connected. Followed the cable back to the chassi but its hanging loose and I have no clue where to connect it. Its a two pins female  connector. When I tweaked them everything was, as I said alot better but now I have some "white lines" vertically on the screen.

Still can't find focus though.

The screen is not the original one. It's a Hantarex... Been looking on the net but can't find the right manual. Maybe some one here can help? I'll take more pictures soon but I'll post the ones so far.



Thanks

Nice one, congrats. Wink
The monitor chassis is a Hantarex MTC 900, I don't know if the manual is available online, if you can't find it, I have it scanned. Wink

I have two original manuals that (I believe) nobody claimed yet.
I can send you one if you want.

Found the manual but thanks anyway. Focus was on the monitor neck. Done what i can and everything is as bright as it can. The lines I was talking about has disappeared.

But!

The colors are wrong. Quite fade. On the manual there are few pots that could solve this I guess.
Red/Green/blue Input level, GB Gain (not red) and RGB DC Level. 9 pots. Which ones would I tweak or is it pointless? According to how reachable the pots are My guess is input level?

Thanks

As far as I know, faded colors caused by the tube, let it run a few hours, maybe it will solve the problem.
If not, you will need a rejuvenator.
