Many Pentranic arcade monitor problems can be traced to how the monitor and signal source were installed and the settings entered on the On Screen Display (OSD) Control Board. For example, the 15-pin D-sub cable and 6-pin signal wire must be installed when the monitor and signal source is turned off. From the OSD Control Board menu, you can adjust the display and even reset the monitor to its factory settings, if necessary.
