	Isn't this the symptom one gets when the capacitor on the crt board
is starting to fail?  I've not experienced it, but I seem to remember the
description in previous articles.  The capacitor in question is spelled out
in the FAQ file, if I remember properly. -- No, I just checked, and it isn't
there.  It must be somewhere in the previous months which are archived on
tape, somehwere.  (Not exactly quick reference while trying to answer a
questions.  Does anyone have the capacitor location/designator more readily

	Good luck
