There is a suspect tantalum capacitor, which I did not replace, namelyProblem fixed. I replaced that suspect capacitor with a 4.7uF, 100V electrolytic, and now the delay time after which the B sweep starts is rock stable...
Now I have a suspect, which maybe somebody could confirm or deny... look at this photo of the replaced cap :
Should the mark indicate the negative side of the cap, then it was soldered in reverse, with the marked side connected to +14V....
If instead it indicates the positive side, then no manufacturing errors.... I am not much familiar with the markings of the tantalum caps....
In any case, now my 475A is perfectly working, and this is what counts... :-)
