  • ticking time bomb?

    Hi...I have two monitors that take a half hour to warm up, ticking loudly the whole time...eventually a louder click happens, and they slowly light up and work fine...i have another that did that and is now dead...any suggestions for saving the two, and perhaps repairing all three? haven't seen a repair place that can touch these..."Fenice" monitors in pedestals running vdb...14"...F330.110? thanks again!

    Once they start. Don't turn them off.

      That's eerie.

      Are your monitors tube (CRT) or LCD/LED? I've never dealt with "VDB" before, so I'm not sure how old the system is.

        Fenice monitors are CRT. These are lower monitors that are 14". I've never worked with lower monitors. I still work with VDBs, which were the original lane computers. I suspect any monitor that will fit in that lower location and look good will be hard to find and expensive. It might be time to give up on them and convert to a system that only uses the overhead monitors.

        Here's a 15" 4:3 aspect monitor. I'm not sure what signal the VDB is sending to this lower monitor so a convertor might be needed.

          You might try a video game outfit that does repairs, we had a game division that had a box that would "rejuvenate " the CRT tubes. They also could find tubes and other stuff. Jon Severt , ,WB8YJF service, (Unknown E-mail, waiting on a reply via PM) . Ed Fox , EBN services Online also does electronic work.

              Brunswick "FrameWorx" consoles have a touchscreen that's placed (carefully taped) over the tube itself. Not too shabby unless the calibration is off. Of course though, it's proprietary to Brunswick systems. I don't think there is/know of any successful way you can mod AMF with Brunswick hardware.

              For you it could be worth a shot. Just expect this to get really expensive if it involves each scorer in the house.
