It was common practice in those days to put a coloured gel in front of the white on black screen, which might be the case here. FWIW, my 2001 PETs have these white (original) and green (later) Amperex CRT types: M24-302W (White, US equivalent P4) M24-302GH (Green, US equivalent P31) Don't know if there's a correlation, but it seems that the machines with the blue bezel and nameplate generally used the white phosphor tubes, while the later models with the black bezel used green screens. m Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2016-09-13 18:02:15
