NEC PG9+ CRT Projector
Don't try to use the HD15 connectors on the front of the NEC.
Those are RS-232 ports, and are not VGA inputs!
It's often said that NECs are the hardest to learn and setup, but it can be done. I think I've gotten decent at setting my PG6+ up. After each tubes and/or board swap, the fresh alignment seems to go a bit smoother. One trick is to try avoid using just one control to make a correction; often it's a combination of, say keystone & pincushion, tweaks to get good alignment & convergence.
You need to provide some air circulation underneath the PJ anyway.
Watch out for a musty smell from the NEC, especially the first 15 minutes after power-on. That means you have leaking capacitors.
Download my setup guide from Curt's site. It's the Tinman and Feathers guide.
As was already mentioned, these projectors are now beginning to suffer from leaking capacitors, it's almost certain you'll have to replace a few.
