Replaced the color pot and get a great picture now with cvolor.  But still no Audio, just audio static, have replaced the two styrene caps at C53, C54.


Getting there.

Thanks for the reply!  Power is fine (went ahead and swapped out the regulator for the new one that comes in the cap kit.)

I double checked polarity on all the caps and they all are correct - big cap neg is toward the back,  one by RF out is correct as well.

Beginning to think the color pot is bad - even though I see some changes in picture when adjusting, I have seen several posts since I first posted this with people complaining about grey scale with yellow and it looks like it is the color pot that is usually the culprit.  I wrote Best electronics to see about ordering a replacement, so we will see when it comes in.
