Titel:

Vector display has collapsed into a single vertical line.

Tekst:

I found a Vectrex for 10 bucks at a local swap meet!  Score!  But wait, it can't be that easy right?

When I fire up the unit the Vector display has collapsed into one single vertical line in the center of the Screen.  This would seem to indicate that the beam emitter is not drawing vector lines on the X-axis.

I've done some research and found this service manual online and trouble shooting guide online:

I've cracked the system open and reseated all of the ICs as the trouble shooting guide indicated that the sort of trouble I was having might be related to "IC Creep".  I'm not that technically inclined, so maybe somone here can take a look and come up with some additional suggestions.

Any ideas?
