In search of a monitor repair tech
« on: March 13, 2018, 11:04:57 PM »
I live in Midway, GA (just south of Savannah right off of I-95) and I am looking to get a couple of monitors worked on. I am willing to travel to get this work done. I'd prefer someone closer but I can't be choosey.

1) 27" Wells Gardner - Picture is dim and fuzzy. I am thinking this is a refresh / recap job.





2) 29" Unkown manufacturer - When powered up there is no neck glow and it just buzzes.

Namco Sys 11 (Tekken, Tekken 2 Ver.B, Soul Edge Ver.II )
Namco Sys 12 (Ehrgeiz, Tekken 3, Soul Calibur)
Namco Sys 246 (Tekken 4, Soul Calibur 2, some Gundam Games)
Namco Sys 256 (Tekken 5 DR, more Gundam games)
Taito Type X2 (Multi-drive but no cab for it yet)

Sega Showcase cab (Naomi Netboot)
NeoGeo (1 slot with 161 in 1 multi-cart)
Burgertime (Dedicated)
Capcom Big Blue (Custom Capcom HyerSpin)
Namco cab (Tekken 4)
Dynamo HS-5 (Taito F3 Bust-A-Move Again)
Atomiswave (Ranger Mission)

#1 could be bad flyback , or bad focus adjustment/tube rejuv. , chassis looks like a U5000 as i don't see the Horiz width coil to the right of the one heatsink.

I appreciate the insight! Any idea what #2 is?

To be honest I would trade both of those and some 19" monitors I have (untested and some have screen burn) for a fully working / clean 27". It's out of my Namco cab whish is a favorite of mine (that I play allot) .. and to be honest I don't really need the 29" as I don't have a cab to put it in. I just hate having non working stuff like that laying around.

I don't have the skill set to work on monitors .. but somehow I keep amassing non working ones....

The second one looks a sharper image or a makvision
Just pull the chassis and send them out
