SIG X68000 / Re: Original monitors - any common faults?
« Last post by famiac on Today at 04:47:48 pm »
No. Most multisync monitors won’t support all of the resolutions and frequencies of the x68k. Additionally, the original monitor can be attached to the computer via a control cable, allowing you to turn off and control both the monitor and x68k simultaneously

Not my listing but I purchased this before and it works GREAT.   Figured some might want a good solution for their X68K

If one gets a standard multi sync 17" CRT monitor from the mid to late 90's. Apart from the plug, isn't it basically the same thing??

I've gotten the monitor and it works fine! The inside were fairly clean too, barely any need to clean it (though I did brush it a little bit). No burnt components, no leaks, no bulging capacitors, convergence is good, sharp picture, brightness and contrast works flawless. However, it does appear to suffer a little bit from pincushion distortion. The left side has a very noticable curve, while the right side is barely noticable. I've tried to locate a service manual, but no luck there. Biggest part of the problem is Google fighting against me by filtering out foreign websites. I'm not very experienced with CRT displays, so it would help a lot with a service manual to troubleshoot this.

I will start with trying to locate a pot for adjusting this, everything seems to be very well marked. If I can't locate anything, then I have to track down some old technician that can help me identify the correct part of the circuit to troubleshoot.

Anyway, from what I have heard from other people, there doesn't seem to be much that goes wrong with these monitors apart from shipping damage. No typical faults that appear to be common. Guess I got a bit unlucky.

Thanks guys!

Mine had the PSU replaced by BEEP in Japan, so I only need PCB's and drives...

Just the PSU. I metered the caps on the board though, and they're all up

testing ESR in circuit is iffy at best. Might as well do a full cap kit job.

Repair Division / CPS2 Cabinet. CRT isn't getting power
« Last post by urnhurrell on February 23, 2018, 06:20:45 am »
So, I recently got my hands on a CPS2 cabinet, and after dragging it into my house, I discovered that there was a lot of disconnections and problems right off the bat. I replaced a pot switch, 2 diodes, a 3v battery, and the AC wires on the CRT board. After replacing and soldering for a week or two, I fired up the cabinet. The CPS2 motherboard seemed to get power, but the CRT is still dead. Any suggestions?

I’ve no idea, that writing was already on :( I thought it meant a hard drive from something else. The drives have two little cables and one main one. Different from the ones in the Pro II desktop I have.
