    Warming flyback issue in my Astro City (MS8 monitor)

    Ohh I see. I didn't know that. The other day my monitor wasn't turning on at all so I'm sending the chassis away to be looked at. Too many odd/random issues.

    Flyback swap compatibility

    As someone who is new to the world of arcade machines and their additional required maintenance, of course the number one question is how to keep my monitors working at close to 100% for the longest period of time. But when something goes wrong (for instance a problem a simple cap kit won't...

    Warming flyback issue in my Astro City (MS8 monitor)

    In terms of epoxy, would you recommend a certain brand? And is it a good idea to epoxy the pots in place? Or do you mean the flyback to the chassis itself? We did experience a few traces on the chasis which seemed to lift with the heat of the solder from various caps being replaced and then had...

    Warming flyback issue in my Astro City (MS8 monitor)

    Our original reasoning for performing the cap-kit was due to a high-pitched frequency which was coming from the monitor. We were'nt sure what specifically was causing it, and the frequency only seemed to occur once every so often, but when it did, it was loud and quite annoying. One of the caps...

    Warming flyback issue in my Astro City (MS8 monitor)

    To clarify what you were saying concerning heat and electronics not mixing, that's why I was thinking perhaps putting a fan on the edge of the cabinet shell (with air blowing onto the chassis) would be a smart fix. Though in terms of replacing the flyback, they don't make the flyback for the...

    Warming flyback issue in my Astro City (MS8 monitor)

    The other day a friend of mine and I did a full cap kit on my MS8-29FSG in my astro. We found that after turning the monitor back on, the flyback became quite hot and gave off a lot of heat in a short amount of time. We actually removed the metal casing on the chassis which enclosed the...

    Astro Nano MS9 high pitch ringing

    i heard this can be the issue as well, would a cap-kit solve this (planning on recap anyway) or is the coil something totally separate I need to purchase?

    Astro Nano MS9 high pitch ringing

    Ill definitely look into this!! Also, I have to correct myself that the monitor actually is an MS8-29, not the MS9.

    Astro Nano MS9 high pitch ringing

    So the monitor inside my astro is omitting a high-frequency tone. I was working with an arcade-tech friend of mine who thinks it could need a re-cap, or possibly could be a voltage issue, but we're not 100% sure. The ringing seems to change pitch when the flyback is touched or nudged (we were...

    Send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you over a PDF. I think the reason why I didn't post a PDF here was due to size restriction, if I remember correctly.

    Technically, I can't SELL you one (I mean, I could... it's not like Capcom actually probably cares let's be honest)... but I created the poster as freeware, I can however point you in the direction of getting it printed large for a good price.

    I could also send/provide a PDF to anyone who is interested, which would scale better depending on how large you wanted it printed.

    I believe I created this in 18x24" ratio, so I would recommend that size or smaller! You could go larger too, if the quality permits.
