Hiring Bad CRT Techs! | Featuring 2 Sony PVM 20L5 Trinitrons

These are two Sony PVM 20L5 Trinitron CRT monitors that were sent to my shop to be repaired and checked out. The first is a tale of hiring a bad technician to try to install a capacitor kit. No, I don’t know the tech’s name. My client said they were a retired Sony employee in upstate New York.

The second is a little bit different situation, but still important.
