    Help with Monitor Repair - You can taste the Rainbow

    Hey guys,

    Picked up an arcade that shooting beams of colour. I tried a degaussing wand but no luck.
    Any ideas which component I should be looking at next ?
    Still getting a picture when I fire it up, its just the colours are split.

    Looks like the yoke is shagged or has slipped out of position somehow.

    Also could be the degaussing coil stuck on? Try unplugging it.

    I tried the basics, unplugging and degaussing without and luck. Iím thinking itís the yoke but thatís where my knowledge is limited.

    Would really like to save the monitor if possible.. potentially take it to a specialist if itís more involved. Anything else I should try ??

    Can the monitor show a stable grid image, so we can see what's going on?
