Re: 2467B Trace flicker


My last message was too brief.  I meant to speak of DI (Display Intensity) on both sides of R2702.  It would be most miraculous if you could fix this one with shotgun replacement techniques.  You will need to diagnose the character of the display intensity command and make it stable before display intensity will be stable.

Is DIA still noisy?  Can you discern anything about that noise character?  Can you put a capacitor on it to ground and quiet the noise?

I've sorta scattershot replaced the S/H opamp U2630B and the muxes U2530 and U2501, after testing the surrounding passives. No change. I see no "walking" of the flicker for various sweep speeds.

  In a previous post you described noise on the DIA signal and high frequency
noise on the DI signal.  You have to quiet that noise before any other
intensity measurements can be meaningful.  If DIA in noise free you can check
the Z-axis by putting a test scope on The Z-Axis outputs (test points 65 and
66 in the service manual).  The Display sequencer and a few other parts CAN
give you screen flicker but they don't put noise on DIA and they usually
present other problems too.  So, if DIA is quiet, and test points 65 and 66
show proper waveforms with little noise in their amplitude, try other sweep
speeds and see if the flicker "walks" across the screen.  
Step 1:  Obtain clean, noise free DIA signal.

  Is there a good way to trace whether it's the z-axis hybrid, the display
sequencer, or the front panel DAC subsystem?

Issues like you describe are usually related to a display sequencer (U650).
In my opinion I believe this is selected part.  I see many 2465Bs with the
display sequencer chip with a green thick magic marker line on it.
2445Bs do not normally have that mark on them.
