Does anybody know what cap needs to be replaced to fix this without recapping complete chassis. The horizontal adjustment is out unable to make any adjustment. If it is indeed a cap needed.
I think I fixed this issue once many years ago on a 17" Ceronix chassis, but I don't have a clue which cap I replaced or even if I was able to fix it. My rusted out memory wants to say it was one near flyback, but I'm not sure & a just a gues.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated
I went ahead & recapped the 5 caps on the pincusion area of the board. The monitor pops now with power, but no image now = Dumpster. I installed caps in correct direction using new exact same uf & V caps & have no idea why there's no image now?
All that work & time for nothing & part of the tinkering game. You win some & you loose some :Scratch-Head:
