Subject: Sick Vectrex... Please offer advise.

Hello everyone. I bought a Vectrex off of ebay a few months ago and also got 7 games with it (Star Castle, Web Wars, Star Trek, etc.). However, I am having problems with the actual Vectrex system. At first the thing worked perfectly. No problems at all. Then while playing, I the entire picture/screen doubled in size (everything on the picture doubled) and grew dimmer than normal. Than it simply dissappeared. If I tap the side of the machine or give it a good whack the picture returns to normal. (keep in mind... when I say a little whack I mean just that... I don't abuse my systems!!!!) Sometimes it'll stay like that for a looong time and other times it will keep fading.

Any suggestions as to what is wrong with it? I know nothing about monitors nor re-capping. This is one reason why I don't mess with arcade games too much... I'm deathly afraid of the monitors.

If anyone can lend any advise, please email me at the following address:

Thank you!

Dunno if this has been fixed yet, since it was posted in July, but if not...take it into a tv repair shop...or two or three. A Vectrex isn't much different than a tv, and it probably won't be too difficult to find someone who will take it and fix it.

Good luck, if it hasn't been fixed yet!
