I have a vectrex that does nothing at all when powered up so I thought I would take a shot at fixing it. The first problem is the CRT is dead so I replaced all of the capacitors on the power pcb but that didn't change anything. Hopefully someone here can answer some questions I have.
- with the logic board disconnected but switch powered on, should the back end of the crt be glowing orange? Because it is not.
I do see some voltages as high as 130v when I probe areas on the pcb near the flyback transformer and I do get a tiny spark when I discharge the crt. I'd like to know what areas to check for voltages and what it takes to have the crt glow in a normal circumstance.
The transformer seems ok, each brown lead going to the pcb is putting out 10v.
Thanks for any help!
