Any older industrial video projector like this one isn't worth anything at this point. Stupid retail pricing in the day, but worth scrap metal at this point only.

Those tubes have been discontinued long ago. Unless you find another unit in working shape, and know how to swap a CRT, then yes, it's recycler time.

Sounds like it's close, but yes, you can pull that round blue sticker off to adjust it. It will fluctuate, but shouldn't drop down to 14 volts. It should sit between 16.5 and 17.5 volts. If that does...

Sounds like tube fungus. NEver seen it in an 808 tube, but that's what it sounds like. You either need a new tube, or need to flush out the fungus, instructions are on my website.

It can be the H deflection board, HV power supply, or one of the neck boards on the back of the tubes. I've got most of the boards in stock, but if as per your other post, you're going digital, I...
