Status 
No Picture
My friend Dan brought his Gravitar over and it was playing blind.
 
You can hear chatter, see neck glow, but there is no static on the screen.  The monitor was essentially dead.
See Diagnostic steps for full solution. Fixed
Tempest Plays Blind Turned my Tempest on the other day and I got no picture.  Was able to coin up the game and play blind. Rebuilt the monitor.  Upgraded it to an LV2000, replaced Caps, and Diodes D100-D104. Fixed
Game is restricted to the lower right corner of the Screen. After rebuilding my 6100 for Tempest, I encountered this new issue where the you could see the full game, but it was in the lower right corner of the monitor.  It appears to have full deflection, but it doesn't fill the entire screen.
Had a bad LV2000.  The nice thing about the LV2000 is they will replace it for free if it ever goes bad.  Just luck of the draw that I had a bad one.  Still highly recommended.
 
The main problem was is it wasn't putting out the proper voltage to the HV section.  The HV section needs +26V DC and -26V DC,  the the LV2000 was only putting out the +26V DC so the monitor was drawing the entire image in the lower right corner.
 
So if you don't have an LV2000 installed, then the problem is in the Low Voltage section and either fixing the low voltage section, or by upgrading to an LV2000 it will fix this issue.
