Monitor Convergence/Test Pattern Generator

Postby Hammerhead » Sat Jan 14, 2017 9:10 pm

Hey all,

Can you converge a monitor without a test pattern generator? The blues and reds are off on my Donkey Kong.

Are there test pattern generators available locally?

I do it with just the color bars available on many games... not as accurate as the test pattern though.

I fiddled with it and got things lined up pretty well....then I lost all the red about three weeks later.

Nada. I keep planning to take the monitor out and get it looked at, yet there it still sits, just a green and blue Kong.
