Monitor Removal

(games without electronic boxes)

1. Turn off and unplug the game.

2. Unlock and open the bezel.

3. Disconnect the VGA monitor connector and ground screw, the monitor control board connector,

and the monitor power connector and also remove the cables from the 2 clamps attached to
the monitor.  See Figure 1.

4. If you will not be reusing the existing touchscreen, remove the screws fastening the touchscreen

controller to the game and disconnect the cable from the back of the controller.  Then locate
and disconnect the Molex connector (orange and gray wires) running from the touchscreen
controller cable to the main power harness.  After disconnecting the ground screw, pull the
cables out of the clamps.  See Figures 2 and 3.

If you will be reusing the existing touchscreen, disconnect the touchscreen controller cable
from the LCD panel (see Figure 2).

5. Remove the 10 screws securing the plastic bezel to the wooden frame (see Figure 1) and

carefully remove the bezel from the game.  Be careful not to damage the bezel with the coin
cup during removal.  NOTE: Keep track of all hardware removed in the monitor replacement
process.

6. Place the bezel assembly upside-down on a flat surface and remove the 10 screws fastening

the LCD monitor to the bezel (remember which 2 screws also fasten cable clamps), then
remove the monitor from the bezel.  See Figure 4.  NOTE: Be sure the glass is not scratched
when setting the monitor aside.

7. If you will not be reusing the existing touchscreen, continue with installing the new monitor.  If

you will be reusing the touchscreen, note the orientation of the screen (i.e., the positioning of

the ribbon cable and which side is the front) before removing it from the LCD monitor.  Then
use dental floss to carefully cut the foam tape holding the screen to the monitor.  Once the
touchscreen is completely free from the monitor, remove any residual foam tape from the
screen with denatured alcohol and clean the glass with the supplied alcohol wipe.

Monitor Installation

(games without electronic boxes)

1. If your replacement monitor already has a touchscreen, skip to step 3.  If you will be using the

original touchscreen, clean the glass on the new LCD monitor with the supplied alcohol wipe,
then cut pieces of the supplied 1/2” foam tape long enough to cover each edge of the monitor
without overlapping.  After the tape is in place on the monitor, peel off the backing.

2. Carefully place the touchscreen over the monitor in the same manner it was attached to the

old monitor, making sure the screen is properly and evenly aligned over the glass.  Clean the
front of the touchscreen with the supplied alcohol wipe once it is in place.

3. Place the new LCD monitor in the bezel (make sure it is not upside-down), lining up the screw

holes on the face of the mounting frame with the larger, drilled holes on the plastic mounting

pieces (see Figure 5), and fasten it with the 10 screws.  Also replace the cable clamps in the
appropriate screw holes.  See Figure 4.

4. Carefully replace the plastic bezel assembly in the game, making sure the coin cup protrudes

into the lower cutout and no wires are pinched, then secure it to the wooden frame with the 10
screws (see Figure 1).

5. If the monitor has a new touchscreen, connect the touchscreen controller cable in the back of

the controller and secure the controller in the game with the existing hardware.  Then connect
the Molex connector (orange and gray wires) to the main power harness and attach the ground
screw.  Replace the cables in the clamps as before.  See Figure 3.

If the monitor has the original touchscreen, reconnect the touchscreen controller cable to the
LCD panel (see Figure 2).

6. Connect the VGA monitor connector and ground screw (do not overtighten), the monitor control

board connector, and the monitor power connector (see Figure 1) to the new monitor and
replace the cables in the 2 clamps attached to the monitor.

7. Plug in and turn on the game.

8. When the game is finished booting, press the CALIBRATE button.

9. Close and lock the bezel, then calibrate the touchscreen.
