SO how does one adjust a console when the image is offset or scaled
Open it up, and on the deflection board there are a bunch of pots. On
Philips consoles they can be adjusted by hand pretty easily, as they
have plastic thumbwheels. On Moniterms you need a tiny screwdriver.
There's a sticker on the tube that says what each pot is for, e.g.
VERTICAL CENTERING adjusts the vertical offset. It's just a little more
complicated than adjusting a 60's vintage TV.
