Default Re: Improving CRT geometry by upgrading capacitors

I agree.

Too bad that time is passing and the plastics, even with very good monitors, are both yellowing and degrading. The age of the plastic material goes the point that you have to be careful even removing screws (when removing e.g. the main board) or mounting back everything will be impossible. Faston are to be swapped to get rid of corrosion, you have to refresh most of the solder points and so on.

And metal boxes with shielding are oftenly rusted, so restoring takes days and days and is an extremely challenging task where a single error makes everything useless.
