thay suck, light output falls if the tube stays lit, it's designed for fast on/off
Haha, they suck? I'd probably have to see a comparison but I'll take your word for it seeing as you go through so many.
The second part confuses me a tad. As far as the light output falling, does this mean a very bright projected image would grow dimmer over a longer period of time?
no, that's a lens, cable, or possibly ele3ctrnoics issue depending on what you mean by Ghost
Ghosting as in trailing of the image. Its not a problem here, just curious. THe image on my CRT direct view at home just seems quicker when responding to a 30fps video game image. Perhaps its the video processing?
what condition is your green in anyway, any wear? If it's not perfect then just replace with another good used tube.
I have a normal green here condition 8 with very large even wear pattern in 4:3 shape.
I think we had a conversation about this before, didn't we? The wear is okay, not too bad. Needed to put the raster between the two wear lines so it would not show up. First noticed it when watching the beginning of Empire Strikes Back and then reconfigured the system to accomodate. Attached is a crude an MS-Paint picture to illustrate.
Current brightness at 20ish, contrast at 40 I think...? I'm upstate right now so I can't check it. Will be going back down to pick it up in June and learn from the DC area's CRT gurus.
