Have old tube style monitor which has blown. Looking to replace with flat screen for neo-geo but can't find any suppliers.
It's a Samsung screen,would like to save if possible .CRT's are not that difficult to fix if you've got the time to diagnose it. They aren't being produced anymore and it's always worth it to try and save them rather than going straight to lcd imho.

Before it died, the screen took longer and longer to come on before eventually burning out. It was then switched off and has been stored in the garage for 4 years.
After the tube was "blown", it was stored in the garage for 4 years. I've opened the back and powered up, the machine is dead but heat is coming from the tv area. The red wire from the top of the tube directly connected to the supply underneath shows signs of burn up the wire and on one of the knobs (vertical hold?) at the power supply. The 2 nearby fuses seem to be intact, will try to post pic. Unable to view your pic, says i don't have permission! I'm not very tech savvy. Technophobe
Yeah. Not sure how many members realize that we can't see their pics when we're new. Several tried to respond to me with pics I couldn't see until now.Yikes. Without knowing the extent of the damage, it sounds like that monitor is going to need a new flyback at the very least.
Also, I didn't know you couldn't view the images on your side. I thought all photos were visible once logged in with any account.
