I don't want to toss it, as I want to use it for c64. Mainly, a purple spot has formed in the corner, and the picture is no longer as sharp as it once was.
I could always bring to the next vintage computer workshop
I overlooked a couple of things in your message - I haven't finished drinking my coffee here yet.
On the purple spot - it really sounds like you need a degausser.
The bigger the better depending on the size of the tube.
I have a 16" here that would help too.
On short notice, you can also you the magnetism generated from a 100W solder gun.
I've done when I was without my tools, it has a smaller mag. field but you can still clear it up.
About the sharpness, there's a focus control on the flyback that will adjust this.
When you can't get it completely in focus, it sounds like the Flyback is wearing thin - it'll be time for a change soon.
