Hi, Chris. Welcome to Worthy! I was an Audio/Visual Multi Media Specialist and technician. I worked for the State of California Department of Education, on the local level. My career began in the midst of the analog years, but the digital era was quickly developing. I had at that time, the best of state of the art industrial equipment available. I had 4 Sony Trinitron monitors. They were interlinked and wired, to a video enhancer, to edit and/or to make up to 4 copies at a time. 99% of all my equipment was Sony. Since I can't actually check your system, I can only offer a guess in trouble-shooting what's going on... And it's not all that complicated. It's either one of two possible problems. You're interlinking your digital equipment with an analog monitor, and that's either overloaded your monitor's response and play-back, or likely due to age, the picture tube is going out. Sony hasn't manufactured Trinitron tube type televisions or monitors in years. Once that happens, the cost of finding an old analog repairman to replace the tube, would be much more expensive that purchasing an LCD or plasma television. I'm so sorry... Picture tubes just wear out and replacing one, would have to be used, because for some years now, no parts are in current manufacture status. You will have to go with the current digital equipment, or inquire if a used one perhaps might be obtained. Analog is still around... Check around local old repair shops, or perhaps eBay. God bless you, Chris. I understand how frustrated you must feel.
P.S. I just read the post Hippie333 had concerning the still available Sony Trinitron television monitors... He is an expert in research. So there ya go! Already an answer to prayer... Thanks, brother!
