Video Game Repair/Crisis zone 2 monitor


Hi Mr. Brian,
I replaced LCD monitor with Pioneer 50 inch projection monitor and now the gun is not showing its shooting mark.
Before I did the same with Death Crimpson arcade and its working very nice.
Please tell me what I need to do ?


Crisis Zone used an optical gun, which reads the scanlines on the CRT monitor. By replacing it with an LCD monitor, you've removed the scanlines, and the gun has nothing to read. Unfortunately, with light guns, you have to have a CRT monitor for them to work.

I can answer questions regarding coin-operated arcade game questions down to the logic board. Error codes, erratic operation, dead boards, I can help with them all. I can help with video monitors on a very limited and basic level only.


I have spent nearly 20 years as an avid arcade collector, and spent nearly 10 of those years as the lead tech for a large arcade operator, doing work for manufacturers and other coin-operated amusement companies around the globe. I maintain a good sized collection of arcade games, as well as a large inventory of spare parts for a wide range of arcade machines.
