Few words about myself first - Marcel, 42 yrs. old and from Switzeland (Lucerne) - got in contact with the Vectrex with a friend of mine recently a few years back and loved it from the beginning.

So 2017 - i thought, why not get one and here i am! :D 


I got a nice MB Vectrex some weeks ago and already some nice Overlays from Steven and also a Mine Storm one from Mr. Nicolson!

Both did any amazing job - big thumbs up!


Also did a Capkit yesterday on it as i thought after 35 years might be a good idea.


I have a 3GE Modell which is the Non-buzz if im not mistaken- right?


Now there is the problem - few caps are different as the CPU pcb is pretty different from the older modells.


For the DAV offset i tried adjusting it like it says in the manual...but the voltage is not changing if i'm turning the knob.

I'm a doing something wrong or is this a completely different task here on the 3GE version?


Somebody please enlighten me - thanke folks! ;-)
