Video Game Repair/Golden Tee Complete
Hi there, we recently moved. Before the move, our golden tee was working fine. After the move, when we plugged it in, the screen was very dark. It's too dark to play but the audio is fine. I've seennonnother sites it could be the power supply, but I read on one of your forums it could be as simple as turning up the brightness. Not sure if you need this or not but the model number is 9700.
Thank you for your help!
You're right- this is likely a very easy fix, and one that has nothing to do with the power supply. First, there should be a small board that is mounted somewhere that has various monitor controls on it. Look for a ribbon cable that comes from the monitor and goes to a small 3x2 board. Look for a brightness control on that. If you do not see one, don't worry.
On the back of the monitor itself, there's a board mounted to the metal frame. On that board will be a high voltage transformer (it looks like a small soda can with a thick red wire coming out of the top). On that, there will be two knobs- one for focus and one for brightness. It's likely the brightness control needs to be turned up. Be *VERY* careful when handling these knobs!
If that doesn't fix the problem, there will be other knobs on the board on the monitor. Look for either brightness or contrast, and one of them will fix your problem!
Hope this helps (and saves you some money!)
