The idea comes from Amiga, but the tools only runs on Amstrad Plus, of course.

use run"diag or run"diag2


The Monitor CM14 would have to be switched on and opened then you could do all color adjustment.

I don't have a unit at hand, but what I meant was, ok, it shows pretty colors but how do you calibrate? Don't you need a reference?

The goal is to set up the Red & Blue on the CRT board untill you reach the same level of RVB color on the screen. I have to do that following flyback & capacitors replacement.
Of course, you have to set up/check voltage (ie: +128V...) before performing color set up.
I would recommand to have your monitor running for at least 20mn before adjustements.

In my case, the blue was to high
