    When first turned on, everything is OK.Several minutes later, picture is
    fuzzy/wormy. Eventually (like 2 hours later), picture clears up but audio
    has loud buzz. Eventually this clears up too.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well in a sense it's good, because it's a well documented problem which
    makes it easy to diagnose and repair.

    Easy to repair with the proper skills and equipment.

    Not recommended for the person who has only soldered a few times in
    thier life.
    For the novice who wants to attempt the repair, getting a hold of a
    junk circuit board for any device with surface mount components is good
    practice before starting. Reading the information at the repairfaq for
    the ctc177 chassis series will also help.

    I cannot stress enough the proper temperature on the soldering iron for
    the job.
