Title: Vector monitor knowledge / repair
Post by: Phatchit on December 30, 2017, 01:12:36 PM
Hi everyone , I'm going to be getting in a Starwars upright from a client  and I would like someone to rebuild the vector monitor for me . I would talk less it but I'm. It familiar with them and would rather pass it on to someone who knows what they are doing . If anyone might be able to help me out that would. E awesome ! Thanks

I do them as well but need the whole machine
I don’t have any color vector games at the moment
To test

Agreed, he needs the entire game so saddle up.  Not sure if Hammy does Vector??  Either way these are some solid techs at your disposal. I never don't pick up a hobby-lesson when seeing a game fixed from them.

step 1: determine what monitor you have...
step 2: is there anything wrong with it?

I currently am working on a vector system, but currently do not do any monitor repairs, i send them all to jim, i only would trust him on monitor repair next to me.. ( but i generally take him like 5+ of the same monitor )

As for "Bulletprofing" there isn't much to a vector monitor to Bullet Proof.. besides cap kits and making sure the deflection drive transisters are well insulated and have good thermal compound on them.. some people like doing LV upgrades on the 6100 and some do not..
