Hi folks,

Myself and my cabs are going to be on the road in a few months (Revivial, etc), so I figured I should get around to getting my Blast City running again.
The monitor is the MS2930 (I believe, it's the non-OSD version), and a while back it lost blue. If tap the metal frame the chassis sits on, I get flickers of blue, so I'm assuming a bad solder joint somewhere. Are there any particular areas I should be looking at for this, or just have a bloody good look at the chassis?
I'm not sure if this is worth pointing out, but it has suffered from the so-called "goop of death", which I'm led to believe is the potting compound from the linearity coil, but it's been like that since I bought it 6-ish years ago, and never had any issues until now. Embarrassed

As always, thanks for any input. Smile

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my sanity the most.

Think first thing I'd check would be the neck pins and sockets, then check through the blue circuit for a dry joint. I'm no expert, though. Smile

Oh, and check the signal connector is good.

Signal connector is good as far as I can tell, will check the rest on the chassis though, once I break my back removing the monitor from the cab. Ouch

Cheers Smile
