I've seen John use a chart to test NPN and PNP transistors. I've always seen them as something that looked like he drew it on a piece of paper right before taping the video. There must be a Word file or something I can print that has these simple tests on them. Anyone have a link?

Yes, I always draw it before I do the video. Maybe we can recreate it from the video and make it a PDF or something.

Having an issue with my D9200.  It looks like the lower 1/3rd of the screen is out of synch or folding over.  Cap kit?  Flyback?  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks

you lost me at Multicade.  To me these are about as real as a three dollar bill but I'm a purist for whom using any type of Mame in an original cabinet is akin to destroying the game. If you want to play with Mame(60-1's run off this emulator) fine...just as long as you didn't destroy a nice repairable game to do it.  I know for some people(myself included) space is an issue and I know that I will never have everything but that's not my goal.  I want to have a handful of cool games to play...when someone walks in I want them to marvel at and play my small lineup of games in the corner. Sorta "welcome to 7-11" so to speak.

I don't know if you can find a manual for a 60-1.  These boards are produced on the cheap by several manufacturers who probably don't even bother to play license fees for the games. You can probably find information for Jamma wiring harnesses and lcd monitors by googling it.

looks interesting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzFs6jpJF08 Plus no one admits that they have one...I might do it just to say I had such a rare game.  That marquee is one of the super generic ones they printed out when they break the originals

I have NBA jam...board looks clean, i was told it was recently working but it just stopped. Also side note player four wasn't working. But at any rate I'm getting static and grey screen..it was blue for a second. Also the pcb has only one of the two red lights on. Any idea what I should be looking for next? Clearly I'm a rookie at this. So any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a place  I found when I was researching multicades for myself. https://www.phoenixarcade.com/product-category/multicade-arcade-classics They have a great control panel that is for multicade it has 3 fire buttons spaces and a place for a trackball and of course a joystick, all sold separately of course . It will fit right up to your ms pac machine. They also have cabinet artwork if you choose to change it. If you google multicade kits it comes up with a lot of great sites also. Good luck

Welcome to the madness as John would say !! I would join KLOV  (Killer List Of  Video Games) to they have a lot of nice people that are in the hobby also, You may be able to get the board you have repaired or replaced for a reasonable price , also if you google (arcade game cpu board repair) there are some places that repair them at a reasonable cost. Once particle board gets wet its hard to do anything with you may need to cut away the bad part and replace it with a new piece and then bondo over and paint. Sometimes you can look around and find a empty cabinet to and then use that. I was the same way started out with the intention of one multicade and now 5 games later I'm hooked lol !!!!! Good luck !!
