German GT65 with 12V socket blocked?
« on: 17:48, 31 January 19 »
Bought an Schneider 464 and an green screen monitor (GT 65) a couple years ago. Didn't really use the monitor much, bought a TV-connector/PSU set...
On a sidenote, got problems with the PSU, after a while of use the picture started to wobble and 464 started to make strange sound also. Stopped using it and got a new sent to me, which did exactly the same. I had an old PS3 controller charging cradle and used that PSU with 464 with no problems... Strange... And as a matter of fact, I'm now using one of those "Wobbly" PSUs on my PS3 charging cradle, without problems...

Anyway, my friend bought a couple of 6128's with one CTM 644 (V2) monitor. I refurbished them (changed drive belts, cleaned keyboard from dust and cleaned machines overall), both working perfectly ;)Got one 6128 to myself as payment. Now, I checked my Green Screen (couldn't remember the model) and it's marked as GT 65, but the 12V pin is blocked with green plastic piece... Is this something on German versions or am I mistaken, about that GT 65 should have the 12V output?
I'll most probably will eventually get an TV-connector/PSU pack for it too and hopefully the PSU will work, this time ;)

  • It's not broken, it just hasn't been fixed yet.

Are you sure that someone hasn't just installed a protection cap on the socket? Have you tried removing the green plastic?

That is a possibility, it's still on my storage shelf. That plastic is a perfect fit, I couldn't get it out with my finger nails...I just thought to ask, if this is a usual case with these ;)I'm gonna check it out properly sometime, though :)
