My old eyes NEO GEO

After getting my Neo Geo home today I started cleaning it! It’s always nice to spray for bugs and vacuum it out. I fixed the marquee light. The starter was bad and so was the bulb, easy fix. Next the score line and credits text looked slightly blurry. Ask anyone when you get over 40 your eyes are the 1st to go. So I wanted to adjust the focus. The focus on an arcade monitor is on the flyback. A flyback is a transformer that generates the high voltage that is required by the CRT. So after opening the back of the arcade machine, there was only about a 2 inch gap to reach in. OK see the part above about ‘High Voltage’? You do not want to touch the wrong parts, AND I like to have the power on as I make all adjustments. (I couldn’t squeeze my fat hand into the space) So how did I do it? I decided to drill a hole in the cabinet in line with the flyback adjustment knobs. Next I used one of my TV adjustment tools (which are plastic for a good reason) to reach in and make the adjustments. See the differences below it quite striking!

Neo Geo finally

I’ve had many multiple chances in the past to get a Neo Geo, but come on I am a classic arcade collector, so I would always pass on them. It wasn’t until years later I saw one at the Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show in Seattle that I finally saw how much fun a Neo Geo could be. Neo Geo has some great games like Metal Slug, King of Fighters, Samurai Shodown, Football Frenzy, 2020 Super Baseball, so many fighting games, I thought it was be great for my game room. I passed on a Neo Geo last year that was pretty cheap, BUT it didn’t work. The game would only play blind. To me this means the monitor needs repaired. It could be a simple rebuilt kit, or GOD only knows. So this week I found a much nicer and working one. Nuff said, a two hour trip and now it’s in my arcade!!! Thanks Grant!
