Yup, if the second picture there is from that TV. Leads 25-28 on CXA2131CS even have little arrows pointing at them, practically screaming "mod us!"
Excellent! Now if I may, the voltage spec sheet I have posted states that spec is 4.7v into the RGB input pins, if this is the case, the RGB mod for the KV-32FS100 says that it's goal is to apply .7v to the RGB pins, how does that apply to this TV and why are we trying to reduce the input voltage of the RGB?
Also, I have Voultar's RGB amp inside my SNES, and nothing in my Genesis and SMS, will this cause an issue for me? And if so how do I approach this situation? Everything rolls through my Crosspoint to my BVM and XRGB Mini at this point with no issue.
Hey folks, I've got a KV-32FS100 I'm planning to mod, but I have the opportunity to grab a KV-36FS17 for RGB modding as well. I haven't been able to find anyone who's asked about one yet, so I'd like to know if someone who's experienced can take a gander at these service manual pages to see if its a viable option. It's got a CXA2131CS on board. Thanks in advance!
Those are both very moddable but working on 32 and 36ers, or even moving them around, is a real pain. I wouldn't recommend one as the first try at an RGB mod.
Also the FS TVs sometimes have uncorrectable edge/corner convergence problems. If you're picking one up and it's not off someone's curb, try to check the picture quality first. I've had a few of those where I spent 3-4x as long trying to tweak the convergence (and still not getting a perfect result) as it took me to add RGB input. If I get stuck with one of these from now on, it gets dumped and I try to find another one.
I agree they are a pain with the geometry, but if you are modding for yourself, size does matter.
Please excuse my ignorance in this situation, as I don't have an eye for CRT Geometry issues, in fact I haven't even calibrated my BVM properly and I think it looks amazing. With that said, how can I pickup on convergence issues? What am I looking for altogether with geometry, is there a test screen? Might be time for me to invest in a Everdrive and get the 240p suite?
Thank you everybody so far for the education. I've been doing electrical projects for awhile, and I think this is going to be fun!
