Jamie...crap with electrical...Hammond
btw...this is a new Master for me, having sold the old one...Has anybody else experienced the monitor scream of death and shrinking imagine as the battery gets very low? I never did on my old one and this was a bit of a shock to say the least..

I'm having some fun and games with my monitor and frame line generator....Hopefully sorted the monitor out ...thanks to Robin, but the bottom frame line seems to get stuck about a 8th of the way down the screen.
My broadcast Master Series frameline gen had a problem similar when I bought it secondhand. The bottom frameline would never adjust fully out of frame. I did some testing and found a problem with the PC board where, as I flexed the board with my fingers, the frameline would shift position on the screen and disappear at the bottom. Obviously a cold solder joint or cracked trace on the board. I machined a small block of Delrin to fit between two large board components and put a permanent flex in the board. Problem solved... well sort of...for now!
Anyway, if you're mechanically inclined enough, give it a test. This will at least get you a bit closer to finding the culprit.
