Need help repairing KDS VS-190 crt monitor



Jan 1, 1970
My beloved 19" CRT monitor, a KDS model VS-190, died yesterday.
It's completely dead - no LED, no click a few seconds after
it's plugged in, no response to pressing the power button.
So I'm hoping it's a power supply issue that I might be able
to fix. The fuse, however, is still intact.

First, does anyone know where I might find a schematic for
this model?

Second, I'm having trouble sliding the PC board out from
under the picture tube so I can access the power supply
section. Is it ok to remove the assembly that fits onto the
picture tube pins? I mean - without screwing up convergence
or whatever? There is a pair of big wires that connects the
flyback transformer to a white ceramic collar going around
the very end of the neck, and those wires don't seem to want
to disconnect at either end.

I'm sorry I'm not using the right terms - I have no
experience with TVs to speak of.

I'd really like to revive this monitor if I can. I don't
see all that well, and LCD monitors display everything too
small to read.

Thanks for any suggestions.
