replace the flyback in any case, very cheap to buy in usa
Seems to be fine now? After a few days of cap kits and reflow, think I'm going to leave it for a bit, works better then when I first got it.

Re: K7000 weird issues.

I suspect it's a bad joint, although I guess it could be the flyback too. I had one that had crazy focus issues when you lightly touched it. Anyway, undo the screw holding it in place (if there is one), press the flyback against the PCB, see if the pads lift. If you have a solder sucker, I would su...

Re: K7000 weird issues.

So I found that pressing on the flyback gives a little shock and turns the monitor on, you guys think bad flyback or bad joint? Might just replace the flyback anyway. Just a weird issue, also it's been on for 30ish min now, will it damage anything if I leave it like this?

Re: K7000 weird issues.

If hitting it gets it working, it has to be a solder joint issue. You possibly have a solder pad loose, separated from the trace. SO the pads were a bit loose on r101, seemed to be still connected, but I exposed a bit of the trace and made a solder blob, same issue, cant seem to figure this one out.

Tube size is wrong. There's no arcade cab that uses a 21" / 51cm tube.
How did you know it was a 21 inch tube, he said it was 22, is there a website with a database of tv and the tubes inside?

Gateninty has the arm, no one makes reproductions of the mounts as far as I know though, maybe ask yaton on Facebook.

Re: TV - Hitachi C2156TN, tube in this any good?

Do you mean to put it in a cab? It depends on the cab and the connector on the tube.

That's a shame. You spent a lot of time on this. Why not keep it and buy another cab?
