I believe Allen's best effort since the start of the Event is 540k.


Many great athletes go out on a high note....

They've both talked about retirement, so it could be either or neither.
My guess is that 2017 will not see either of them do the job.

I do not know what Brian's best score is at this point.

There doesn't seem to be much action from either?

Consider playing gents!  <stirpot>

My 's are on Brian this time. Maybe a time limit on this would help push some action?

KLOV is a good source for working, recapped, etc. chassis from time to time.  If you don't feel like your up to it and/or don't want to make the additional investment in soldering equipment, your best option might be replacing it and selling the non-working chassis to recover some of the cost.

If you're going to do the work yourself, in addition to a decent soldering iron, I strongly recommend getting a desoldering gun.  Unfortunately, the ones that are worth their weight are pricey ($250+).  They are a good investment if you're going to be undertaking a lot of soldering work, and frankly without one, even if it's just a flyback and maybe the HOT and a couple diodes that need to be pulled and replaced, you are going to sink an enormous amount of time (and likely pull out a lot of your hair) removing solder with the standard desoldering braids and pumps.  Just my $.02.  :)

Thanks for the tips. Yea it looks like I got my hands full I've never replaced a flyback or done any sodering before. Hopefully all goes well best case scenario it's a learning experience, worst case I blow up my dk machine it took me forever to find lol.

Check out the Sanyo EZ flow chart:

https://segamadebaddecisions.wordpress.com/2015/04/12/the-sanyo-ezz-c-14-inch-colour-monitor-the-20ezs-neglected-14-cousin/

See the upper right-hand corner.  Looks like it is most certainly a bad flyback.  Looks like you also need to test the HOT, with power off.  You may need to replace it too.  You can test diodes D601 - D604 out of circuit also, just for good measure.  Not sure what all could have been taken out before the fuse blew as a result of the flyback, but good to to down the line, and wherever things start testing good (i.e. if the HOT tests good, you shouldn't need to go any further; if the HOT tests bad but diodes test good, replace the HOT, but you don't need to go any further in testing than the diodes....etc).

I recommend https://www.arcadepartsandrepair.com/ once you have your replacement parts list together.  Ian Kellogg is another good and reliable source for replacement parts.  Since you're going to have to pull the monitor and then remove the chassis to do the repairs, you might as well get a cap kit too, if you're up for it.  Search youtube for Arcade Buffett's tutorial on removing the chassis.  It's easy to follow, and once you've done 2 or 3 20EZ chassis pulls, it becomes second nature.
