    Without knowing the exact Kortek model I can only give generic suggestions. It's either the east-west transistor or the diode modulator. Surely not a cap. If you don't know the model post a pic of the chassis.

    Just a quick thought, I was refurbishing a TV the other day and its horizontal size was out. After I adjusted the B+ (it was low) the width was corrected.

    Remove the chassis and send it to Joey @Jomac

    Regardless of the fault, I think it best you let an expert take care of it.

    If you decide to follow John's advice make sure you look up how to safely discharge first, careful poking around there even with the power off.

    Here is the first google hit for adjusting monitor B+ just in case you didn't look already https://www.arcadepartsandrepair.com...or-b-settings/
    Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far
