New Owner - Display issue on left side of CRT

Post by Grisbane » Tue Sep 28, 2021 3:43 pm

Greetings everyone!

I've recently purchased an Arpicade and am mostly happy with the purchase. There is a problem with how the games are displaying on my monitor. The image on the left side is distorted and I'm hoping this can be resolved with a setting. The monitor was recently serviced and my other pcbs do not have this issue when used in the same cabinet.

Any ideas on how to resolve this? Pictures of the issue are attached.

Does it always happen or just on some games?

If it's always I'd guess you just need to adjust your sync very slightly.

If it's only some games I'm guessing it's a particular resolution/refresh rate problem. If so, assuming you are using the latest ARpiCADE, trying an older version that had less complex res swithcing may be a workaround until I fix the issue in a newer release.

One way or another it's definately fixable, just need to figure out what the issue is.
