Video Game Repair/Golden tee

Question
I picked up a golden tee 2004 it works for a short while then the tube starts to scroll with the line going up.  Is there a way to change it to a LCD monitor? Or is it not worth fixing?

Answer
Hi Marty,

Luckily, adjusting the VHOLD on the monitor shouldn't be that difficult. Open the back of the cabinet and look for the knob on the monitor that is labeled VHOLD. If your monitor has a satellite board, look at the buttons on it for the correct one.

If you're unable to get it to work, it is possible to connect this to an LCD monitor. This is a good guide you can follow:

Expertise

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.

Experience

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.
