Odyssey Monitor swap to flatscreen.
« on: February 08, 2017, 06:42:17 PM »
Had some extra time on my hands today, so figured I would try to get an old Odyssey machine up & running. Machine booted up fine but no picture, Blaaa... plugged my pc monitor up, got a pic, vid card good. had a spare monster monitor kicking around, installed it, that ones bad too, Blaaaa... Well I have a few 26" monitors out of Bally machines, so why not, it will fit. So after a few hours of looking at schematics, & hacking/ splicing all sorts of wires, I managed to successfully install a Cinevision monitor in my Odyssey. If anyone is interested in doing the swap, I am more than happy to share the details. Really is an easy swap, & takes about 40 lbs. off your machine.

I've got some cine vision monitors and 3 or so Odysseys. If you have time I would like to hear how you did it. Especially if you had any challenges with getting the touch screen to work. Thank you Gene

This should be all you need to hook up your 26" cinevision monitor in an Odyssey. You will need to add a 24v power supply. 110v can be pulled from the p10 molex originally used to power the old crt.
      If you have any questions or need any more pics of the install, let me know.

run 2 wires from P8 harness marked Din & Dout to the corresponding pins on the 9pin port on your monitor & your good to go.touch-screen works like a charm.

The video looked really good and sharp. Enough space inside the cabinet now you could put shelves up to store Odyssey spare parts. Will definitely do this as soon as time permits. Thanks, Gene

Can you post a pic where the wires from the monitor  are  connected into the Odyssey?  Is the pic fixed where you mentioned the polarity needs changed?  Thank  You  Tim

I'll take a pic tomorrow. All the wires are plugged into the plug that was hooked up to the original monitor.It should have a tag on it(P8). I have not updated the pic yet.

That is really interesting. I have 3 working Odyssey machines and I never knew that could be done. The main question is where do you get one of those Bally lcd screens from? Maybe would like to try this on one of my Odysseys.

Wanted to give Big Thanks to Slam for this info. Works Great! I used a Bally Cinevision Ceronix. No 24 volt PS is needed.  I mounted my LCD to the frame work that the CRT is bolted to rather than mounting it to the door.  This is a very easy  swap. I will  post pictures later. Also swapping in a WBA is very easy so you  can use the new $100.  Thank You  Tim
