Hello I just got a new in the box never been opened Vectrex today. I opened it up plugged it in and got squiggly lines my heart sank, but I knew this could happen being new and never opened and all. Then I thought well nobody can fix it here in Australia may as well open it up have a look. I don't know how to repair monitors but I know a bit about them and thought well the unit seems to be ok game sound works. Maybe something is out of adjustment I know if you adjust a monitor to far left or right it can do strange things, so I opened it up started to adjust a pot did not help went to look for another pot, and just happened to look at the screen and it was ok.
So it might have needed to warm up or maybe I did something, seems ok now is this a known thing? Also the screen seems to be off to one side a bit, I can stretch it left and right and up and down when the start up screen is on, but unless I do it way to much when the game starts it seems to use the whole screen anyway. Is there a measurement it is supposed to be, I mean the start screen where it says Vectrex and the lines blink around it.
Also is there any way to move the whole screen to the left a bit I can only see two pots, I can see some other different looking pots but I did not want to touch them as I know if you adjust some things in monitors you can never get it right again without the right equipment.
If anyone here knows anything that might help that would be greatly appreciated.
