Looks like you're are missing sync on the MTC-900 - possibly the PCB is set the wrong sync polarity or the MTC-900 video input connections aren't correct.

That LCD is a sin indeed. :D
I would rather go for the MTC 900. :)

LOl, I was acting as if I didn’t know already that you brought it home and was working on it after all these years 😁

Goed for you my friend and remember any woman not loving that cab isn’t good enough.... (man, I’m SOOOO lucky)

Anyway, Etienne and I already talked about it, we are planning a day of Hantarex trouble shooting.....but.....I still have a Hantarex here which should be in working condition so if things are really messed up (Hantarex raster monitors aren’t the nicest to work on) we can always go that route.

I’m not even going to comment about the LCD...... 😁😁😁

The dipswitch of the 60-1 was set to VGA in the first picture, and after changing that to the other setting, the best i could get it was what you see in the picture
The hanta's have 2 sync wires, but only one is connected the other is cut in the harness which looks factory

So i have Ground, R, G, B and Sync connected in the jamma connector the right way.

That should work out of the box i believe as i have seen more 60in 1's on a MTC900

As Andre mentioned, we will trouble shoot it, and i will connect it to one of the known working Crazy kong boards that i have here to verify

I know that one of the monitors has a missing color, so i think thats a transistor issue of one of the output transistors
Will check it by swapping the chassis after we have one working to see if its the tube or the chassis, but i believe its the chassis

Also i have obtained another temp solution, A CRT VGA screen which is at least better than a TFT ;-)

Made a start with some parts..



Took the coindoor apart and cleaned all metal parts.




Coindoor itself looks decent, minor scratches, but no dents as far as i can see.




The plastic coin insert part also looks great from this coindoor.




Partially assembled, and cleaned the front.




I see that the lightbulbs are missing..  in fact the lampholders are also not there  ???




Time to dig in my shed, as i remember i still have another coindoor..
Found it, but is not in good state..
Well, at least i can steal some missing parts from this one, and yes, the original coindoor sticker also  8)




I may need some other things from this, but for now i only need the lights.




Its a bit rusty, but it cleaned up pretty well.
At least good enough to apply some silver paint on the rusted spots.

Cleaned also 2 original buttons while i was at it, so they are now ready too and waiting for the control panel.

Digimon send me a PSU and some other stuff, Thank you very much !!!  that is so cool  :spaceace: :spaceace:

Anyway, was looking through all my stuff that i have around here and miss one connector...



The harness i have but that 8 pin connector was cut off  :-\

I saw that it only uses 6 pins, so i could desolder the 8 pin connector off the board and solder a 6 pin in place (which i do have) but i preffer to use the original connector.

Technically it will not matter, but with the correct connector it prevents wrong connections.

Does anybody have a connector for the 8 pin variant for me to buy or a source where to buy ?

Hi,

I was shocked to find that these old AMP Italy connectors are actually still in stock:
