Yes I need the flyback transformer, the same on the picture.
Do you known the reference of your transformer?

synoptique mean a functional schematic in french.
Lol ok :)

The 13" moniteur is  an "hacked version" of the 19"

The flyback is powered by a 12V (instead of 24V on the 19"), but the chassis only produce 24V.  So they add a zener, a balast transistor and a Resistor soldered on the wire (not on pcb) to produce 12V.

Ah. I'll make sure to double check that.

They look awesome!

The attached flyer suggests that Space Attack could have been available too.

Chassis has been recapped now (both PCBs). I put in caps with identical capacitances as the old ones. The picture is stable and almost good but I'm not satisfied yet. If you look at the picture the top and left walls of the playfield are not straight. It is not like a wave going over the monitor, it's more like the walls are bent. Kind of difficult to take a good photo. Any hints on what I should look for on the chassis? I tried with a different Breakout PCB and get the same result...

I think you may have to look at pots for the adjustment, or maybe even the convergence rings on the neck

I tried the rings on the yoke but that didn't really have any effect on the bent lines :( I also played a bit with the pots without results. What I haven't tried is messing with the different adjustable coils. I believe horizontal linearity is one of them I havent tried but it is quite difficult to reach.

Nice work.

I think that your picture is too large in both direction.

Etienne: I have not tried to fiddle with the yoke except for the positioning rings (I guess they're not called convergence rings on a B&W?). I will see if I can spend some time with it this weekend.

Spectroman: Thanks! Yeah the picture is probably a bit too expanded. I have been able to tune that though but the bent walls remain... Hmm..
