Power Issues

  • Check fuse
  • Check solder joints of AC plug
  • Check voltages on board

Vertical Deflection Collapse

Characteristic red/green/blue retrace lines visible on the screen.

Tube Rejuvenation

Last resort to bring back dim tubes, burns oxidation off of guns.

Internal Magnetic Interference

A CRT can be exposed to enough magnetic interference that the image retains a persistent color or geometry issue. Generally, these issues can be fixed by enough degaussings by the built-in degausser or by using a stronger external degausser coil. While rare, it's possible that internal components or the case shell can cause magnetism issues on the screen.
