Don't Forget the Solder Wick

Our family has a nine year old CRT projector TV, one of the first consumer models that could scan 1080i. It lost red convergence a week ago, and I went a hunting for the fault. I was whining about yanking out the 18 pin power op amp that drives the red sub-coil yoke. Phil provided some motivation. Not just in his default "You are being a Wuss" cheer; but in the observation that there was little downside if I screwed up! That was all I needed to hear. An hour before kickoff, and we were good to go.
