Some days ago my Samsung 21″ CRT Flat televisions Deflection Yoke Coil were burnt. I already replaced it(near by same type but not same) but the horizontal alignment of picture is not straight it looks some curve. Can you help to solve this problem.
Reply :
It is very difficult to adjust the CRT Deflection Yoke alignment once it is removed because all the alignment were done in factory by using machine. Furthermore you have used the deflection of not the same spec. This means you may have to take extra time to play around with the adjustment till you get the best picture. The yoke coil alignment is very sensitive and a slight adjustment will cause the focus out and mis-convergence.

If it takes lots of your time and still not able to align it the best solution is to return the set or buy the set over and salvage the parts.
