View Full Version : What is wrong with my Color Classic's Display?

I received a Color Classic off eBay today and when I turn it on for the first couple seconds the screen is very pink, it then switches to the normal grey background while starting the OS. I've seen other Color Classics boot and I don't ever recall this period of pinkness! Does anyone have any idea what causes that, and how it might be fixed?

Flaky connection on the analog and/or weak color gun.

It could be that the CRT socket loosened up during shipping and needs a little bit of expansion from the CRT's heater to make good connection. Reseating the CRT socket on the tube may be all that's needed.

Just remember that there are some serious voltages around there.
