green chip  
how do I fix the video output of an 1996 X-men v.s Street Fighter. every thing works on it except the video output I think it might be this green chip on the back of the screen, it keeps falling of and seems to be missing something. any advice?

Hi Daniel,

The "green chip" that you see is the monitor neck board. It should connect to the monitor with a white connector that slides over some metal pins on the thin part of the monitor. Can you see that it isn't fitting correctly, or does it just need to be pushed on? Do this with the power OFF to the machine and unplugged.

Hope this helps!

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.
