Tektronix 465B Focus Problem

Discussion in 'Electronic Repair' started by mike@westendstudio.com, Feb 3, 2006.

    The traces on my 465B scope are bright but a bit out of focus...I have
    heard of resistor problems in the focus control voltage divider in
    other models that have caused this same problem. I checked the CRT
    schematic and noticed the resistors in question are in a resistor
    network of 4 resistors.

    Any thoughts on this would be helpful.
    Thanks

    What's the focus control do when you adjust it?

    The focus control seems to function correctly, but you can't quite get
    the trace clear and sharp.

    The thick-film resistor could be out of spec,or you could also have
    astigmatism problem,or noise in the power supplies.
    First,check the cathode V (-2960,IIRC)to see that it's in spec.Part of the
    thickfilm network is the HV divider that sets the right voltage,part is the
    focus network.(doublesided thickfilm)

    465B was not known for a really sharp trace-it has a mesh lens at the end
    of the electron gun structure.
