I was warned when I collected this TV that CRT was low, I decided to get the CRT tester out to have a look. The B&K 467 was pressed into service, adapter 6 was used and immediately I could see the tube was indeed low (in the yellow) and what’s more it had a grid to cathode leak/short. I used the remove shorts function and that cleared that fault. Next was a clean and balance, this again had spectacular results and now I have good emission.
Switched the set on after years of dormancy, tuned into the workshop test signal, adjusted brightness and contrast.
