I did this to an se30, and was told by the organization that ultimately HAD
a spare and replaced it that you have to do a lot of adjustments on the
video control board - which being high voltage made me somewhat uncomfortable -
so I had it done. Cost me about a hundred bucks. You can bet the next time
I had RAM to add I took it back to the shop to have it done rather than risk
the tube again.
