Does anyone have photos of the Sanwa 29E31S CRT in a Naomi cabinet?

I picked up a chassis to replace a missing one and am trying to connect it up. It has a lovely layer of dormant bubonic plague dirt with the aroma of a 50 a day ashtray

There are 3x connector cables on the CRT side. Brown/White, Black/Black and Red/Blue:


There are 3x connector pin header points on the chassis board:

P410 (in around the flyback) fits both the black/black and red/blue cable - and both connectors fit in either way around too as the pin header on the chassis has no plastic "key" to show the correct orientation to plug it in:



P810 is around the side of the chassis. Again this fits the black/black and red/blue cable connectors either way around as there is no key:



No idea where the brown/white connector goes at all.
Edit: P301 is the pin header for brown/white connector but yet again there is no pin header key to show the orientation:


Is it documented anywhere on how to connect these cables from the crt to the chassis?

I've read many posts online over the years of people slagging off the hantarex crts but good god the hantarex's are 5 star luxury compared to these Sanwa's

The black pair are for the degauss coil and plug into P810, doesn't matter which way.

The Red/Blue pair plug into P101 with the Blue wire on the left closed to the large coil with 31A written on it.

The Brown/White pair plug into a connector at the front of the chassis, behind the large heatsinks. Its hard to see with the chassis fitted as the tube is in the way. Brown wire to the left (assuming you are looking from behind).

If you get the cable orientation wrong the picture will be flipped on the vertical or horizontal axis

When I get a chassis I always spray them with mr.muscle or the Aldi equivalent and rinse them off with warm water from the shower.
They come up like new.
Let them dry for a while of course.
Do it with tubes too .

I’m glad i proof read that because it said
I always spray them with my muscle ����

Currently carry a PVM 14L4 across the city centre.

At first they feel light, then very suddenly turn into a box of lead!

/ Home!

Started in an underground carpark two floors down with no lift.

20 minute walk concludes with a 5 storey lift up stairs.

I can't feel my arms.

On the plus side, this thing is mint! one private owner from new.

And it works! Thank fook.



Bit of a blurry pic but it gives you an idea of the size. I believe these were the last of the PVM CRT line produced. Unfortunately I'm one digit away from 480p (the L5s do that, this is an L4)

To save on space they don't have buttons along the bottom but instead have light up buttons along the bezel.

Because of this they look super clean rotated vertically. I'm thinking about using it for vertical Saturn and Dreamcast games.

Damn I thought this first photo was a bit clearer, need a new phone!

You can see the illuminated buttons though.





800 TVL up close if anyone wants to see what I keep banging on about

Check out how many little vertical lines each scanline has going across. 2 to 3 times that of a standard TV.

One more set of photos and then I'll stop annoying ye

The cat decided the monitor couldn't possibly go in the bottom as that's apparently for her;



It's actually a pretty nice fit up the top. 54kg of weight in total!

Ultimately I want to get a new unit to put everything on but will have to be extremely selective in what is used for obvious enough weight reasons.



The video chain system is working really well with this setup, as it means being able to play vertical and hori games for the Dreamcast and Saturn without having to alter anything at all.

Switch on the PVM for verts or the BVM for hori.

When I put the 14 inch in between the cab and the BVM it was the same satisfying feeling you get from a long tetris block

I actually managed to pick that PVM up on Donedeal. A lad had it listed in Donegal a couple of months ago and I just asked on the off chance if he was ever down this way. Said he might be in the future.

Didn't think anything of it until a few days ago when he said he still had it and was on the way down.

Never really look at Donedeal at all but I'll be keeping an eye out in future.

There was a Sony CUBE on donedeal for a decent price a while ago. Down in West cork, I missed out on it.

There is a PVM on donedeal at the moment. €1300 though

Ah yes, that BVM D24. Fecking gorgeous yolk. There's something like 50,000 hours on it, but it does come with a brand new unused tube. He was looking for quite a bit more over on ebay. Actually I think there was mention of the image being a little blurry. Can't see anyone going for it at anywhere near that price. You never know with these things though.
