Re: 5116+5D10 intensity problem
OK, then what I was looking for was a significantly larger ripple. What happens, voltage wise, at the very beginning when you turn on power, and then after the trace starts to dim? Is there a voltage change there?toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Naturally, you do need to measure the HV, since that may be a problem. Lower HV typically means dimmer trace, and depending on how the CRT is done, can make for a larger trace.
However, and you need to check when the trace goes bad, does the waveform at TP12 change? If not, then the fault lies beyond that in the circuit. (could likely be in the CRT circuit). Since this is a 5116, did you mention if the problem exists with another set of plugins? IF not, then it's looking as if the problem is rather specifically in the 5D10.
Not familiar with the setup, so I'm just working on symptoms.
