I'm the guy that replaced the convergence IC's and had one fuse blow (5 amp pico fuse). Suspecting bad parts I bought new IC's from a recommended vendor (and fuses) and I replaced everything and it worked the first day...but when I turned it on the next day...poof...a different fuse had blown. I checked the resistance of every resistor I could find related to the + and - 24 volt circuits and also the convergence circuits. Everything checked fine. I replaced the blown fuse and everything has been working fine the past 3 days. I know stray trons are hard to track down. Just wondering if anyone had had similiar experiences. I bought all the manuals but as you know their troubleshooting is minimal. This is the best website I've ever seen for corporate knowledge and sharing individual experiences. Cheers, Utah

Check the caps in the power supply for the convergence circuits. An ESR meter is a start, a scope may be required. Not every problem is a convergence IC or resistor. If the fuse is blowing on the + supply, you may also have an intermittent problem in the vertical output. IIRC, it supplies the vertical output as well as the convergence output circuits.
