Oh, I figured you'd stamp the serial number and a fake FCC ID on that plate so I made those parts blank.

Today I found another 20" TV nearby. It's Coca Cola branded so I may keep this as is. It's in great shape!


The picture is actually better on this one than the Samsung (although the crappy iPhone cam doesn't catch that)


The TV is produced by LG.

BTW: I think these TV's are a great alternative to old arcade monitors. No burn-in's, less power consumption and the ones I've tried remembers its state and can be connected directly to JAMMA boards through the SCART without any adapters.

So. A little update here:

Some days ago I received a package from USA that had a LOT of stamps on it:


Inside this package was this:













































Keep scrolling...

















































Yes, I'm now a proud owner of a 100% working original Donkey Kong (yes, I've tested it)! :cheers: No need to say where this is going!  :lol
It was actually a quite risky deal on facebook! A woman is dealing with arcade cabs on facebook, and I PM'd her asking about a working DK PCB. She had one and I transferred the money and hoped for the best. A couple of weeks later it arrived! The board itself also looks very clean. And guys; this is a big deal in this country. A DK board is more rare than plutonium.

Furthermore I have built a second control panel with just just ONE jump-button. I have earlier purchased a Moon Patrol cocktail cab (that I'm currently restoring) and inside this there were 2 Sanwa JL-B's. This is Sanwa's very first joysticks, all metal. I bought a 4-way Nintendo restrictor from Mikes Arcade and this fits perfectly on the Sanwa. It actually plays great now!




Then a few days ago I bought an original 4-way Nintendo joystick from Arcade Boneyard. I'm just waiting for it to arrive. This cab will be as close to the original as it can be, at least from the outside. I don't see any reason to acquire an orginal powersupply though. The switching PSU's are more reliable anyway.

Ohh and I have also ordered a High Score Save Kit with Internet upload for my DK PCB! It hasn't arrived yet, but here's my high score URL:
http://arcadehighscores.com/dknorway

Take care and see you later, alligator!

Nice!

Glad to see this project is still going :)  In June I spent some time in Paris/London/Iceland and I totally get the scarcity of these machines over there now.

You should cover the EPROM windows. Enough light and you start to get bit errors. Sunlight and fluorescent lamp light contains enough UV to do damage if you work with the board for days.
