It's actually not too bad to work on. The 2 main PCBs (deflection one side,
video processing on the other) are on fold-out frames. And in fact the whole
thing comes apart in a few minutes.

If you can't find the service manual, I have the one I downloaded...

That would surprise me, given that Tatung made TV sets (which were often
badged 'Decca' in the UK). Tandy sold a set based on the Tatung 160 chassis
as well.

Given that, I would have thought they would have used their own chassis
in this monitor.

Why? What happened?
