most likely neck-board. Swap with Red and see if problem follows

I think the PA board is the next "most-likely" problem. Check with Curt Palme

Hi
When i turn off the ABG the blue tube brightness is reduce and on the gain set up i only put it around 140 but normally for 6500K it would be factory adjust to 255 or MAX, I saw some thread in Curt Palme site that mention about RGBHV input board that cause the problem, but i don't have another board to try but i did try the composite video input and the blue is still too bright though. Any suggestion on this problem are welcome.

not sure what your looking for in terms of "suggestions"? you have 2 options.

1) find another G70 and swap over boards until the defective module is located

2) send your boards like the PA, RGB, and maybe a few others to someone to have them tested in a working chassis and repaired. the only person I know who does is is Curt.

Since Curt is not replying I'm guessing he's already explained this to you. There is nothing a normal person who is not a technician can do to repair these machines outside of the 2 options mentioned above.

I parted out a few G70's and if I had some I could sell you some of the boards to try out. However I don't have any right now

A long time ago I had a similar issue.

Check the connections to the C Block (neck board) and either G or F board. pay attention to the the heavy HV cables. Oh, and don't switch the polarity.

Factory setup usually has green set to MAX (255). The 12XX PJ used to set Blue to MAX.

IMO and experience ABG on.
