I just purchase ( Lords of the Round ) and the person said that sold it to me said he had installed a new monitor.
Well....I TOOK IT HOME AND AFTER 30MINUTES OF PLAYING TIME THE MONITOR STARTED FLASHING? mAKING GAME PALY VERY DIFFICULT....
I have never heard of that game? I can't even find it on Google. Is it a jamma game, could you plug in a different game to make sure its not the game causing the monitor to flash?
It starts flashing after it warms up for approx 2-3 minutes. The picture looks great untill it warms up.
Knights of the Round is an arcade game released by Capcom in 1991. A side-scrolling beat 'em up based loosely on the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, the game features an RPG-like level advancement system, with fighters getting new weapons and armour as they advance through the game, however the player can not choose how to upgrade his/her character - the level up system is static.
I found it now! Its probably not the game but if you have another jamma game you could plug it in and make sure, the game is 20 years old. That is kind of an odd problem I have never seen a monitor flashing before but if you just bought it hopefully you can send the chassis back to the person that sold it to you and they can fix it. Sounds like the flyback has a problem.
Is the monitor turning on and off or is it just losing video? How long does it go out?
But I would also contact who you bought it from and tell them your problem.
any time there is flashing on screen it is amost always machanical in origin. check all connectors jamma vidio on chassis neck board to crt. if all sound then get an isulated probe (stick) and push on different areas of chassis board to find a sesitive spot wich could be a cold solder connection. Us extreme care because ther are several areas that generate LETHAL energys.
