Commodore 1942 monitor help

Gutted. I have a nice Commodore 1942 monitor that is not working anymore and would like to get it working. It's a shame as it's in very nice shape.

[ Show youtube player ]

It was working fine a few years ago then the screen started to go very white and washed out, with some diagonal lines on the screen.

[ Show youtube player ]

Now the screen does not work at all, and stays black.

I presume it might be capacitors? The LED still comes on and I get static on the screen so I assume flyback is still ok.

Would someone have a Capacitor list avail for it? I could try a recap to see if it helps...

Any help would be appreciated.

not sure if replacing all capacitors may help in this case.
i'm not a big expert in crt, but this kind of issue is more related to a power issue of the crt itself. you face a kind of G2 power issue : http://www.fixya.com/support/r438363...een_g2_voltage

so, if reajusting is not enough, you may have to find what failed.
can be a transistor, resistor, more than a capacitor.

but anyway, you can consider replacing capacitors in the psu part.
i have a 1942 wich stopped working and blowing fuse.
it was the main capacitor (the big 220 µf 400V, you can't miss it ) was shorted.
