    Default Monitor problems

    I just picked up a 25 inch monitor, and I swapped in my Die Hard Arcade, but the screen keeps rolling the image, and when I make the necisary adjustments to the monitor, it won't stay still...any suggestions?

    What is the model of the monitor? Either way, I'd recommend checking the wiring (especially the sync wire) and if it looks good, I'd install a cap kit (replacing the capacitors on the monitor chassis).

    yeah i'd say get a cap kit and replace all of the capacitors....if that doesn't work it might be the potentiometer for adjusting that setting...i'm not sure?

    I'd try different methods of hooking up the sync before recapping the monitor. Some monitors prefer sync to be hooked up in different ways.

    I think I know this one, what resolution is your monitor? I believe die hard arcade machines use a medium resolution monitor.

    so if you put a standard res monitor with a medium resolution board you would have a problem. See if the die hard machine has a dip switch or setting for standard/medium res.

    I know golden tee and gauntlet boards have a switch for standard/med. res.

    now is the image scrolling? or is it gambled with black lines and out of sync?


    now I could be wrong, but i've seen die hards with med. res. monitors even though KLOV lists it as a standard resolution.

    Actually, I'm pretty sure the ST-V system is standard res.

    I replaced the wires, but the image on the screen is backwards, but it doesn't scroll as much. I'll try to find the dip switches, anyone know where I can find them? Thanks.
