Default Re: CRT is brighter to one side [Hitachi CTP213]

Okay, thank you, I think I may have some photos, but I'll check, and i'll take some more up close shots, to help - though that will probably have to be tomorrow.

The slant is only a small angle, but as I've said, it's noticeable, though I can live with it if need be.

Thanks

A fix that doesn’t involve taking the back off the set: put some bits of cardboard under one end of the cabinet, repeat until picture is level!!

Only joking, personally I’d leave it alone, as the set is working well now, and you can cause convergence errors by messing the scan coils/ yoke about, I know wonky pictures can be annoying though! I’ve twiddled many yokes to try and level a picture.

Regards
Lloyd

I’m glad you were joking as it’d be just my luck i’d lift one side of the set up to wedge some cardboard underneath and the set would slide off the cabinet onto the floor. (Im only joking, too)

I don’t want to mess the set up again, but i am slightly OCD so the wonky-ness does annoy me quite a bit. Wouldn’t it be okay though if i were to mark the pots and then adjust the yoke as the set is self convergence as it’s a PIL set.

If theres a chance of really messing it up then i can live with the angle, but i’d much rather straighten it out.

Thanks
