 Video Game Monitor Troubleshooting and Repair work
 Video Game must be brought to our repair shop or monitor must be removed from the game (by either the game owner or one of our technicians).
 Only limited diagnosis of a problematic monitor can be performed as field service.
 We repair both X Y Vector (BW / Color) and Raster Video Monitors (Coin Operated video arcades only).

 Pinball Medic can test and repair the High Voltage, Vertical and Horizontal Deflection and Video Synchronization sections.
Picture Tube Degaussing $15 per CRT.
 - Replacement of major monitor components (flyback transformers, control pots, power transistors, CRT (picture tube replacement) is not included in the typical refurbishment process and will increase the final cost of a monitor repair.

 New Replacement Monitors  (See Note)
 Not all monitors can be repaired. In fact, it is getting nearly impossible to replace a CRT monitor. We can only try and find a new replacement monitor for your video game (if that's the only option).  Replacing an old obsolete monitor can produce dramatic video clarity enhancements and provide a burn-in free game play experience.
 Vector monitors are no longer manufactured. Capacitor kits, flyback transformers and replacement high voltage driver transistor for a limited number of X-Y vector monitors are available.   List of Vector arcade games and their monitors.

  Note: The main Cathode Ray Tube, picture tube or monitor screen is no longer being manufactured because of the high lead content in the glass. Also, higher priced LCD and LED displays are displacing the traditional arcade game monitor. The costs of both the substitute LCD/LED monitor and its mounting adaptor requires a new monitor to be priced much higher then the original CRT monitor. This can make a used video game worth more as an CRT monitor source/donor then as a working game.
 The US Congress enacted a law requiring all monitors 25 inch or larger to include a digital tuner. They neglected to omit arcade monitors in this law and game monitors don't require a TV tuner. This is why monitor manufacturers started to make 24.5 inch monitors to get around having to install a useless TV tuner in the monitor. Why to go congress!

 New monitors are both very hard and expensive to find. Pinball Medic will have to find whatever is still available in our supplier's inventories. We can no longer keep all monitor sizes in stock.
 All 25 inch and larger monitors except for the lowest CGA resolutions are costing more then $500. This price can affect the need to replace the game monitor. Instead, rebuilding the original might be the only economical option. Monitors are quickly becoming the most valuable part in an arcade game and can even be worth more used then the whole arcade game.
