    So what actually causes a FBT to fail? Is there corrosion on the coiled copper wire that eventually burns up and opens the circuit? If you carefully took a FBT apart, could you clean the corrosion to extend its life? I know I'm probably asking very ignorant questions.

    Not so far on my Lacie I use Custom Resolution Utility and am constantly using different resolutions depending on what games I'm playing. Like, I almost make a new resolution for every game I play, basically whatever my GPU can handle on Ultra settings plus the refresh rate I'm trying to lock...

    Or you could wall mount a 48" OLED right now and move your desk back a foot. Or later this year, wall mount the 42" and move your desk back 6 inches

    Yeah on my 4:3 monitor that's not a big deal, I just overscan the 5% or so of the picture that is warped, since it's all on the extreme right and left. I never thought of 16:10 monitors, you can't really overscan too much of the sides without also overscanning the top. But I guess you'd have to...

    Oh well Google can help you figure out the radiation stuff. That was figured out back in the 1940's

    Thanks for the exhaustive explanations Chief Blur Buster. You definitely have your work cut out for you in the coming years. Do you think the dual layer LCD's (monochrome light-blocking LCD panel sandwiched behind color LCD panel), like the tech in Sony's PVM's and BVM's, and some Hisense TV's...

    Yeah finding the major capacitors in the vertical deflection circuit seems to be the the thing to do, but that will probably take many nights of reading old CRT repair manuals and browsing old message boards. Chief Blur Buster by the way, on an unrelated note, I read that you guys are making...

    melibond go back 50 pages and just skim through the thread. We've talked about a bunch of different adapters. You could also just read Derupter's post history, he's made a few good summary posts

    Interesting. Then maybe it's a problem that shows up in the first few thousand hours, then levels out. Because mine hasn't perceptibly changed one way or the other since I purchased it from a printing studio 8 years ago. Thanks for the response, I've actually thought of a lot of this stuff...

    Yeah, I understand that but when you consider the specific nature of this linearity error, and how it matches many other Diamondtron owners, like Derupter's brother mentioned above, I'm thinking it's some electronic or maybe even firmware issue. I mean, if it was a yoke alignment issue, then it...
