    Thinking about sending my monitor chassis our for repair

    Hey guys,

    I'm not getting anywhere with my MS8-29 chassis, and I was referred to JB Monitor Repair, by Todd Tuckey (the guy that does the TNT infomercials) Didn't know if anybody had any experience with him, or if you think it is worthwhile to send a chassis out to be "diagnosed" by someone like that.

    If anybody has any better references here, or ideas on what to do that would be great!

    I've got the chassis pulled and am ready to send it out, just looking for any wisdom on this before I take the plunge.

    Thanks man

    I'm in total tate withdrawal at the moment. My Astro was good for a while after replacing some caps, but then a couple of months later it had the same issue again.

    Here's the link to the guy Kid Panda mentioned: http://www.arcadecup.com/

    Seems like a really solid guy from talking to him on the phone, unfortunately he doesn't have the correct tube to work on my MS8-29FSG

    Still looking for any good contacts if you have 'em

    Quan is the Monitor Tech, all the ops in this area goto him for a reason, plus the fact their test rig can do so many different chassis.

    They are right in Canton,MA as well.

    Quan of East Coast (not Quan of the Omega) is a good guy.

    I did that not to confuse ppl. Both Quans are cool in my book.

    UPDATE!

    Got my chassis back from East Coast Amusements yesterday. Total repair cost was $95 parts/labor and as you can see Quan did a fantastic job!


    Now it's looking better than it ever has and I know where to go whenever I run into monitor trouble in the future. Big thanks again to ReplicaX for the referral!
