Hello

I am back to tell you that I received it like two weeks ago
it is a Mephisto Monte Carlo IV
However , I may need your help to repair the display
because the wires of the display are cut but it won't be a problem to repair that
All I need to know is how the whole display thing works because I think that something is missing
If you could take pictures , it would help me to know how to repair it

Thank you

yes, I just bought a MC but I still don't know if it's MC or MC IV  because the seller was unable to tell it

If he had simply switched it on, he would have seen it!

A Monte Carlo just says "PLAY" in the display, while a Monte Carlo IV shows "-M.C.- -04-"...

Hello SM

Thank you for your help
so I'll have a 50 % chance to receive MC IV
yes, I just bought a MC but I still don't know if it's MC or MC IV  because the seller was unable to tell it

As for guessing which one is which in your picture , I would say that the two computers at the bottom are MC IV because they have white squares unlike the two above.
When looking at the pictures of schachcomputer.info I noticed that the MC IV had white squares and the MC had beige squares , look :
MC IV has white squares

and MC has beige ones




Hi Turbo:
As I said everyone would guess differently because there is no way to tell by just looking at the board.  Some have the Mephisto Logo sticker some don't.  It is all random.

The bottom left on my pic is the MC IV  and the botom right is the MC.  in my collection 

All the best

Hello

I 'd like to know if there are visual differences between Mephisto Monte Carlo and Monte Carlo IV
So is it possible to recognize Monte Carlo IV just at looking at a picture ?

Thank you for your help


Hi Turbo:

I am afraid that this is impossible.  Both machines came out with different woodgrain.  So if you were to ask an expert to pick out which is which they would only have a 50% chance of being right.  I played that game in some different forums a few months ago by adding Limited Edition and Academy to the photo also.

I just found the photo so try and guess which one is which 



All the best
