Tip on jittery or twitchy screen displays
I remember a recent post (during the final days of AFF 1.0 IIRC) in which someone did a VGA mod and said it was basically okay but the display was a bit twitchy.
I recently did my first VGA mod ( ), and the display was fine. But then I had to disassemble the unit for something, and when I reassembled it, lo and behold the screen image was jittery.
Did some looking, and I realized that the orange connector on a wire that goes from the video board to the metal cage on the analog board was loose, almost disconnected. I'm referring to the connector that's about 1/3 from the top and 1/3 from the right in the following photo:
It's the connector just above the leftmost adjutment pot hole on the analog board.
Anyway, I reattached the connector, and the screen jitteriness went away.
I wanted to confirm that this connector was the cause when I had the unit on, but I was too chicken to wriggle it around with the unit powered up.
Is this connector for some kind of grounding? Anyone know its function?
