    Sega Astro CIty Nanao MS8 Pincushion and Horizontal Size Issue

    I'm having an issue with monitor in my Astro Cab. There is a pincushion in the geometry and on the adjustment board the pot for horizontal size doesn't work. I had the chassis completely recapped and we tried a different adjustment board. Even with the new adjustment board the pot still doesn't work. Any one had a similar problem or any advice?

    Test out of circuit the damper/compensation diodes. It's a big transistor like package screwed to the heat sink in the middle of the chassis probably screen printed D630.

    I've replaced several of the heatsink mounted ICs and I don't remember seeing D630. Could it be any of these?

    Maybe it's D530, not sure.
