Sound no picture


Recommended Posts

I turned on my Vectrex today and the display was flashing.  Eventually, the display went out and now I only get sound.  I turned it on again later and the same thing happened.  I don't think I have the technical ability to fix this.  Is there somewhere I could send this in for repair?

Hey Noah98,


Sounds like an issue with the -13v supply - possibly the power switch or something on the power board (maybe caps).


PM me if you're still looking for someone to repair it - I've repaired a good number of them.

So I have one that behaves just like this. It's been recapped recently, and tends to work for quite a while. But at some point after it's been running for a while. the screen just goes blank. There's no white dot, and the game continues to run and function with sound.


If I let it sit powered off for around 10 minutes or more, the same thing repeats. Works great till it the screen goes blank again.

Often it's the power switch...one pole connects which allows the logic board to work, but the other pole has a bad connection and so the screen won't come on.


(Not in this case, but might be useful if anyone else has a similar problem)
