Guys

There is this Marquee 8500 that has a bad connection between the mini coax and the neck board on the green tube. I know it is the connection cause when I wiggle the cable the image comes and goes.

It seems impossible to find these mini coax receptacles here in Winnipeg. I tried dropping some solder on the pin portion of the coax male connector and it worked for a while but the problem returned.

If anyone knows a better way to improve the contact or where I may find a receptacle please let me know.

Thanks

Steve

Try flattening the pin on the mini coax plug with a gentle crimp of pliers, clean all connections on plug and socket, touch up the solder connections on the board; e.mail me if you need another mini cable, no charge to send you a used one.

To flatten the center pin on the mini coax without fear of smashing the crap out of it, you can use vice grip pliers adjusted to "just smaller" than the diameter of the center pin. Squeeze away.
