Monitor repaired by Spectroman is working, hell yeah!  Kiss  arrow



Now I'll have to capkit the left monitor in order to fix the screen size/geometry.

Still two issues to fix :

1. (A NEW ONE), the PCB doesn't boot anymore after 5 minutes of play. Cold boot is always ok.... it sounds like a power supply issue... will check the voltages when they are warm...
2. Sounds (except the car engine) is *sometime* missing. Maybe a capkit of the external sound board would fix that? Anyway, it won't hurt...

Awesome machine! I remember always playing the 3 screen cockpit version of this whenever I went on holiday years ago. Also played TX1 in the same arcade!  Smiley

You probably know this already, but if you wanted to put in an original chassis on the right hand screen, you can put a Hantarex 900/E straight on the same tube. Likewise, you could change the other two Hantarex 900/E to Polo chassis in the future if you wanted. I repair chassis in the UK every now and again and have many working chassis on the shelf ready to go if ever you need one! Smiley

Back on this!  Tongue

I'm now in the mood to work on that one!
So here's the condition of the game 10 months ago :

Still two issues to fix :

1. (A NEW ONE), the PCB doesn't boot anymore after 5 minutes of play. Cold boot is always ok.... it sounds like a power supply issue... will check the voltages when they are warm...
2. Sounds (except the car engine) is *sometime* missing. Maybe a capkit of the external sound board would fix that? Anyway, it won't hurt...

Well, the situation is now worst :

- the game doesn't boot at all!
- the left screen has now sync/parasites issue!

 Lips Sealed

As suggested by Fred 'Spectroman' when we came at home few months ago, the left monitor chassis is a waaayyy too dirty... which is probably causing some kind of short circuits? OK, I guess it must be cleaned!
Ok, there it is before the 'bath' :



...and after. Not totally cleaned but a way far better!  arrow



Great, no more sync issue for the left monitor :



(I will capkit that chassis because I can't extend the vertical picture size as much as the middle/right monitors)

But... the game still doesn't boot!

Next step, let's check the power supplies! (yeah, there are 2 PS inside that cabinet)

(to continue...)

Oh, before checking the voltages... I also noticed how dirty the game PBCs are... at least the top one!  Lips Sealed  arrow



See!  arrow



Some repairs done in the past obviously  roll eyes  arrow



Anyway, here it is after the bath :



Yeah, the game is back!  Kiss  arrow



...but still some sounds missing... ok... next step... check the voltages (finally!) and all the component around the 'sound-related' stuff!

(to continue)
