Re: Television conundrum.......

the vertical fold over problem is easy to fix.
look around the vertical IV, there is a low value and high voltage cap maybe 4.7Uf @ 160V , maybe a few other caps,, but typically them caps are bad and easy to replace,,
i have done hundreds of them on all sorts and sizes of tube TV's

Re: ok,, New Project time,,,

ok,, so i messed around with this a bit more.. i don't think my sensor is gonna work with this set up. the sensor seems to max out at 4.08V which is about 75% of my sensor. so i don't know what else to do.. so from about 75% - 85% ( considered a full tank ) there is no change in readings. And there ...
