Quoted from RoyF:

I'll remove the board and reflow the male header pins. Will report back results tomorrow.
If I need to replace the transistors, what are they (may have some from pinball parts supply), and would I need to discharge the picture tube in order to be able to safely work on replacing the transistors?

Are you thinking of caps? It could probably benefit from a cap kit and not an overly complicated job.
Maybe do the flyback too while you're in there. It's not that much more to the repair.

Yes, you should discharge the tube first. Ground a long screwdriver and have fun with the "crack". It's a thrill. (:
Screen collapse is a fairly common problem in the old arcade monitors.

Quoted from Travish:

3 or 4 seconds is good. I have never used the resistor method. If Bob Roberts says is ok I ain't worried. He was the vid of arcades.

I never used the resistor either. I kind of liked the 'thrill of the pop'. I knew if worked and plus it added a little thrill to the chase.
I used a wood handle screw driver and grounding wire. Probably gave me a false sense of security.

A little off topic... Did you see where Bob Roberts has suspended orders? He is such a great resource. I hope he gets all his accounts caught up and back online. Kinda' like Steve Young, one of the few remaining online order sources where you can use the honor system and get your orders mailed to you before payment is received.
