Re: Tektronix 465B Focus Problem

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.

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