To give myself something to do, I've bought this:- http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5773609454 It's a fairly knackered SVP350 that has been on a pub ceiling for a long time! It really makes my existing SVP350+ look mint. Lots of grimey nicotine stained dust etc inside. Switiching it on produces LEDs on the protection board for the V and H deflection. First thing that struck me is that the little fan on the convergence board has become so full of grime that it has stopped spinning, so my first thoughts are an overheated ic on the convergence board (where the heatsink is clamped). I'm going to pull my good board out and see if I can get any life out of it - I'll keep you up-to-date. Any thoughts on what to check and thoughts on which components maybe faulty is extremely appreciated. My intention is to completely clean it up and sell it on - not looking for huge profit, just fun along the way!
