Since my monitor didn’t come with the full chassis (no boards) I was looking to either get the boards for it, or get a replacement monitor that had a full chassis already. I picked up this monitor for $40 from the guy that sold me the cabinet. Good deal I think. I hope. My switching power supply from Andre Chromey came in today, so I’ll be putting it in this weekend. I’ll be plugging the PS and the monitor both into the service outlet inside the cabinet. I’ll then need to unplug the cabinet (or use a outlet strip with a switch) when it’s not in use since the service outlet is always live while it’s pllugged in. (it doesnt get turned off with the rest of the machine. The monitor and coin door will be powered by the old DC(AC?) current from the Xformer, and the new PS will be also – but the boards will be powered from the AC(DC?) new PS. (make sense?)
This is the inside of the machine. Not horrible, but pretty messy when compared to this one. You can see there’s no power supply (bottom center) and my coin mech is all assed up. I’m getting a new switching power supply from Andre Chromey who has many great recommendations from the guys at rec.games.video.arcade.collecting.
