Re: Retro Rig Photo Thread

Nice photo! What's left of the CRT - a hi-fi amp of some sorts? Doesn't it introduce some interference with the CRT? It's a Hallicrafters SX-42 shortwave communications receiver. Yep, it does indeed introduce interference with the CRT. It makes the picture wobble slightly. I need to figure out how …

Dead Amdek Video 310A: Is there any hope?

I got an Amdek Video 310A (amber monochrome monitor) yesterday for free. I'd like to try to make it work if possible. I plugged it in and turned it on. And... nothing. The power light turns on but there are no other signs of life. Not even the high-pitched CRT whine that I expect to hear. Is this a …

Re: Dosbox to emulate Windows programs (not games)
