not too long ago, a guy on KLOV posted a thread about his TANK renovation. what impressed me the most was the job he had done on his monitor with the help of a so-called rejuvenator. i had heard of those machines before, but never seen a result. the picture he put up totally impressed me arrow



just out of curiosity, i entered the name of that tool into ebay germany and guess what: i got a hit for an auction ending in a couple of hours. there were just 2 low bids on it so far, so i decided to check out the end of that auction. i couple of minutes left and the bids were still low, so i input my bid and ... GOT IT FOR CHEAP!!! Kiss

it arrived safe and sound in a nice case in great condition



inside, the machine along with the original manuals



the rejuvenator in close-up



included in the case were a couple of adapters for different tubes. unfortunately, the most important one, #23, (for monitors G07 and WG 4600) wasn't there. however, one of the adapters i have, #6, will probably do most if not all of the B&W games i have Smiley. i'll have to continue looking for some other adapters from now on. #23 is top priority!

perhaps there is an adapter which i can use to rejuvenate myself ... Wink Wink Wink



i great bonus inside the case are a couple of written guarantees for the restored tube which gives a working guarantee for the coming four years after rejuvenation. i'll have to put those stickers on the tube once i've used the rejuvenator Cool



has anyone of you guys ever used a tool like that before?

I had a chat with Carpcatcher from arcadeinfo about those rejuvenators some time ago, he has some experience with them, so you might ask him if you need advice. They must be used carefully, you may destroy the tube by using them.

Pretty soon we will all be queuing in front of your house with our monitors under the arm waiting to be rejuvenated.
I had never heard of such a device but the word "rejuvenate" alone sounds magical  Grin

Well, my uncle (who repaired loads of TV's in the 70's and 80's) always said that rejuvenating is just a temporary "living up" of a tube. That's the reason why he hasn't got one (believe me, I asked ! Smiley) He simply used to swap tubes back in the day because that gave it a LONG extra lifetime.

What you should NOT do is use it on monitors that still give a OK to good picture. Only use it as a last resort only.

I personally would never had rejuvenated that B/W tube pictured in the first posting. Especially because it's a B/W tube....
