    Sega Naomi Universal Stand Up Restoration Thread

    Cabinet side is definitely Molex, monitor side should be JST VH if you want to re-pin it proper.

    Sega Astro City -5v problem

    You could use a Meanwell PSU with 5V/12V output but you'd lose -5V and would have to use something like a Negatron to get that, if required. You could also just use a PC power supply. Both solutions would require you to do some rewiring to work with the existing cabinet wiring.

    Sega Astro City -5v problem

    The transistor that handles your -5V is probably hosed. It's a common issue on these power supplies. Your best bet will be to open up the PSU, and use a multimeter in diode test to check it and if it's shorted, then replace it. See the below blog posts for more info...

    Nanao MS8-29FSG missing solder?

    Those pins on that transformer aren't used, so no missing solder there and no pads/traces to connect them. As has been said, if you or someone else hasn't already, definitely recap that chassis. Check and make sure your dag wire is connected from the CRT to the neckboard, otherwise that can...

    New Astro City Tube Swap

    I've tried in the neighborhood of 15-20 different consumer sets and have never found an exact replacement. If they're out there at all, they're likely not easy to come by and it will only get worse as CRTs continue to get junked. I've got a couple 27" presentation CRTs that I haven't got around...

    Disassembling cabinets

    Having witnessed a DDR Kcab basically sawed in half (friend removed the monitor portion from the speaker portion) to get moved up stairs in a Chicago town house, I would say you might be better off selling/trading the Tekken. The DDR was at least moderately doable since the monitor box was...

    Where do folks buy their 22 awg wire in bulk?

    Well wtf, I wonder why they would only ship via SAL. Took like 3-4 months each time.

    Where do folks buy their 22 awg wire in bulk?

    Is EMS to the US even available? The last few orders I've had from Murder Channel and other labels have all been via SAL because EMS wasn't available, last one was in March.

    Where do folks buy their 22 awg wire in bulk?

    Haven't ordered within the last year but they've always, ALWAYS been slow to ship. If you're okay waiting a few months, they're the cheapest around, but I find you're not saving tons unless you're spending hundreds on parts and may as well buy from someone else that will ship faster. Also hope...

    CPS1 Multi. Official Thread

    I was honestly hoping that's what the surprise would be. Then reveal it later on down the line when everyone was gushing over how amazing it is having the original Q-Sound chip.

    Well, so far everyone who has received a multi has reported getting a Q-Sound chip That would be my guess.

    Negative feedback thread for kcarcadegame

    After a month of back and forth, excuses, and a 6 page callout thread. You must have missed the part where KC told him to return the cab because he didn't want to deal with shipping the parts. Shipping a cab missing basic, bolted on parts--parts that were present in the photos given to OP--is...

    Negative feedback thread for kcarcadegame

    I don't know, if you bought a used car that you understood came with doors and a radio and then showed up without them, would you be okay with the seller jerking you around for over a month and then petulantly telling you to just return it? After you spent the last month trying to get them to do...

    Negative feedback thread for kcarcadegame

    Side panels and speakers aren't small parts, I'd say that's something that would be considered a base part of the cabinet. And no, the best you can do is not shipping someone an incomplete cab in the first place. Maybe show some pride in your work and respect for your customers.

    Negative feedback thread for kcarcadegame

    No it isn't. Should everyone who has had a negative experience go post in a positive experience thread for KC? Pretty sure folks would get moderated for that. This isn't a thread for both-sidesing. More to the point, OPs experience clearly isn't an isolated one, and it shouldn't take a callout...

    Negative feedback thread for kcarcadegame

    KC's MO absolutely is greed. The only reason to disassemble and risk losing parts of these and other cabs is so you can cram as much into a container as possible to maximize your return. That's it. It's pretty interesting that whenever the subject of KC is brought up, and the fact that he...
