You could have a bad convergence yoke or a tube that is arcing. You could also have a situation where someone tried to adjust the convergence and got it way off, causing the chips to be overdriven. You could have gotten poor quality parts. You could have botcherd the soldering. Lots of possibilities.

Read the first ten posts of the convergence repair sticky very carefully:

Check the supplies to the ICs, check for solder problems or open resistors...the typical stuff that is discussed in the convergence repair thread. These sets were known to have bad yokes that would take out the chips. It is very hard to diagnose these. A ringing test and inductance test on the yokes would be a start.

Your apreciation is appreciated. Sundays are not unusual, as this is really a volunteer job, not my business, which is repairing and calibrating displays.

There is wisdom in knowing when to quit that some of us lack. My gut feeling was not good about this one. Enjoy "The Shack."
