Default Sony KV1320UB

I bought this set on eBay about 12 years ago. Apart from the CRT emission being a bit low, there was uneven brightness with the left hand side being dark.

I successfully managed to reactivate the tube with my trusty B&K 467 and quickly repaired the brightness fault by replacing C615 (4.7 mfd/250V) on the power board. After a quick squirt of servisol in the user controls, the set now performs very well, given that it is now 48 years old.

I've never beeen successful in boosting one of these tubes. Did you use clean and balance or full rejuvenation?

Apologies for a typo error - the offending component was C613.

Those early generation Trinitron CRT's usually took to a rejuvenation a little better! Forget about the newer ones.
It's amazing how the B&K rejuvenators gained favor over in Britain!
BTW, You'll have to excuse my poor US style of spelling, but my spell-check won't let me do it properly.
Sincerely, Dave USradcoll1.
