Wells-Gardner MonitorsMost Atari games used monitors by W/G, even the raster games. Lunar Lander and Asteroids used an Electrohome G-05.

Gregg Woodcock has written a VERY intensive overview on the Wells-Gardner 6100, I HIGHLY SUGGEST READING it. It is available in Text Form.
Zanen Electronics sells a "get well kit" for the Wells-Gardner 19K6101. Call them at 806-793-6337 and ask for Kit #206, it is $14.95 and contains 30 parts. Be sure to read these improved installation insructions.
AmplifoneThe Amplifone monitor was custom designed for Atari in hopes of being more reliable and "crisp"(visually not electronically) than the Wells-Gardner 6100 that suffered from so many deflection problems. Well, they were. The Amplifones had a very well designed deflection circuit and it was very stable. Unfortunately.....the High Voltage unit in the Amplifones (specifically the HV Transformer) was poorly designed and failed almost in every case over time. This was probably the downfall of Vector games. After this second attempt, most operators gave up on the "touchy and unreliable" vector games.
If you bought a new HV transformer from WinTron, please read these new "corrected" Installation Instructions
Zanen Electronics sells a "Get-Well Kit" for the Amplifone as well. Ask for Kit #410, it contains deflection transistors and some caps and costs $8.95. They are also working on replacement Flybacks at a more competitive price
