The blue tube on my 1041Q has a hint of wear that I can barely notice when I inspect the tube with a flashlight, but when I compare worn and not worn on the screen itself, the worn whites are quite yellow.. naturally I'm the only one who notices it, but its been driving me nuts.. would increasing blue G2 help me get a better white? I suppose I could just check rather than posting, but what can I say, typing is easier than ripping the thing open at 1am :)

Yes, you can do that, but you'll have excessive blue in the virgin areas.

What I would do, since this is an antry level set anyways, and we all know you'll upgrade..;)

Move the set back just enough so that the whole image is within the worn phosphor area. You'll wear the tubes a bittle bit faster, but probably only by 1000 hours or so, and you'll be into an EM focus set long before that..:) - CRT tech info -pro audio website
