Let's put that 'untested' board...



Power on... nothing?

Power off/on .... YEAH!  :-* :-* :-*  :arrow:



Working! Maybe sounds problem (some sounds seems missing when I play the game, but I'm not sure..)

Regarding the monitor, I have to set the focus and contrast potentiometers located somewhere behind that huge monitor 'box'. 'will figure out how to reach them...But for now, the news of the day is... that damn it board seems to work!  :-*  :arrow:

I'm usually not lucky regarding the 'untested' board, but I had the opportunity to get this kit (boards + joysticks + others parts) for a very fair price (thanks RĂ©mi :-*)
...and it's finally a working board. What else?
Regarding the sounds, yes, I'll do that.   8)

Nice result, +1 for Etienne, turn down the brightness a bit and those vertical lines will disappear. ;)

Nice!  :spaceace:

Interesting, so it's got a full-color monitor in there then? Is there a backdrop or is the image just reflected into a mirror?

Here's the boards view.
Game PCB :





Remember the 'missing sounds' problem? Let's try my *spare* PCB, in a temporary setup as you can guess...  :arrow:



HELL YEAH! This sound PCB ...'part of an untested set' ... is perfectly working:-* :-* :-*

OK, Sounds PCB close up :



Replacing the capacitors would probably help to repair the original one, or these sound boards are victim of an other 'specific' failure syndrome ?

Now, let's try to fix the 'contrast/focus' problem on the monitor.

Dawn, there's absolutely no direct access to the monitor electronic parts. All is locked inside an heavy box! I finally found how to remove it!



I didn't completely removed that monitor box (a pain to move)... but just enough to see if I can find the usual 'Focus / Contrast' potentiometers located on the monitor chassis.
Arghhh... only focus here  :-\  :arrow:



OK, at least this 'focus' potentiometer solves me one of the two problems... so there is a contrast/brightness problem on this monitor. I hope a capkit will solve this... but it would be also nice to name that monitor. Any idea about the model of this monitor?

Awesome Bruno, love the game and the machine !

My RS had a Sanyo monitor, it's just an earlier model than the common 20 EZ.
