I have a Neotec 2515CM monitor that I haven't had powered up for maybe 2
years (it was working the last time I knew). I'm building an Area51/Maximum
Force Duo cabinet and had everything ready to go but when I powered up the
system the monitor stayed dark, though the game was running as I could hear
the attract mode through the speakers.

I have verified that the chassis board is getting 120V but the monitor
doesn't give the usual 'static' feel and the heaters on the neck are not
glowing. I don't know very much about monitors but I do have and can use a
multi-meter. I'm looking for help with what to look at; things to check or
resources to check out. I'm assuming that a cap kit wouldn't help me out as
I'm not having a picture problem, I'm having a no-picture problem :), but
then again, what do I know.

Thanks in advance,
the blindraccoon

Probably a HOT or flyback. Not for newbies necessarily. Could also be
resistors open, or any number of things. Have not worked on any of
these so I won't be much help to you.

I'm sure somebody else in here can assist you.

As blindraccoon stated so eloquently:

Sorry, forgot to mention that I did check the fuze, and it is intact.
