Deal!
To get you to record that video, I'd even agree to feature in it as Kermit.

Yes, weird picture distortions like that are likely cap related. Go for a capkit first and see what's left to fix.

De-soldering for 2-pin caps I usually melt & remove each side of the cap first and then desolder/clean the holes & pads. May need a bit of heat as on monitors the pads tend to be large.

Let us know how it goes - be great to see a before and after for the project :)

Paul.

I just checked the monitor in my Puckman (a Hantarex 900) and it has the same issues like yours Béla.

Guess it needs caps .... :D

By the way, an excellent moment to promote this wonderful document by Speleo_DE a.k.a. Andreas :)

Pretty sure my 900E/USA in the Jackrabbit needs more than a cap kit...

Thanks for the chart André, I've already bought a nice stock from caps, but seems like I missed some types ;D


I wish I could have one of those meters. :-\

Well, I think it will take at least a good number of new caps on this one (mine)....

It's been running for a while now and I saw following problems:

1) Top is light, it gets darker to the bottom (the monitor is in vertical position)
2) there seems to be some "ghosting"
3) now and then the picture shakes a bit
4) colors are a bit weird

I know that it has the following physical problems:
1) The HV cup is in bad condition (aren't all the see-through one's ?). They tried to fix it, but I can hear some HV going on under it ;) I've received a new cab with cables from a UK guy in the past, I will install that
2) the neckboard doesn't stay on. There's a piece of cardboard keeping it in place right now :S ;)
