Yes, a dead 555 (56?) would be a much happier situation, but -- You could take it to a local TV repair shop. I'm not sure, but weren't PET monitors modified Zenith TVs? A 70's Zenith TV would be right up their alley -- the guy working there probably cut his teeth on the family console as a teenager :) . >...Schematics with >10kV written on make me very nervous) You have a schematic? BONUS! Take it along to the shop :) . BTW, that 10 kV comes out of one of those voltage multipliers mentioned here lately. Odd coincidence. -- Brian _________________________________________________________________ There are now three new levels of MSN Hotmail Extra Storage!
