Hi Steve. I've got several more 1500's here that need fixing
Bring 'em on Neil! I'd love to have a go. And thanks very much indeed for kindly donating the Alba to me in the first place. It's proved a very useful introduction into the world of the transistor, whilst still having plenty of friendly familiar valves around.
The focus control is at one end of it's travel, so I may just check a resistor or two in the locality. I always think it's a shame the 1500s were never fitted with convergence controls!!
