Hey all -

I've got an Astro City that has a long story. Got it from KC and to be honest it's just got some convergence and color issues that I'm not sure I can solve. Curious to look and see if anyone has a better condition specimen of this monitor out there for sale. I'm located in Oklahoma and I'd be willing to drive to pick something up, or talk about shipping, I suppose. I know this is probably going to be challenging to come by.

Can you share pics on what the monitor looks like? It could be something you can correct by turning a few pots on the chassis

Not seeing any After pics just before in that thread, would be great to see it fixed though.
Oh is there no shot of it fixed in there? Needs to update the thread. I'm sure he won't mind me sharing, this is the same monitor after he fixed the convergence issues. He'd never done it before, just got in there and figured it out. Came out awesome as you can see.

Let him be your inspiration!

My Windy has convergence problems, I made it worse trying to adjust from the rear door, it’s tight in there!!

I think the best thing to do is get the monitor out and on a bench to do this properly, the Windy has no frame so I will have to make something up probably from wood.

The rings were loose and not obvious where they were but I have a few magnetic strips to play with.

Thanks for all the offers to take a look at what I'm dealing with. FIrst off - how the hell do I get a good photograph of an arcade monitor without catching the sync lines ruining the photo? Here's some I got before with some patterns from the 240p test suite.
