Re: 454 HV regulation off

Oh I already performed that test, Albert. 5 9 volt batteries plugged into
each other in series with my meter, diode checked it. Sure enough, worked
just fine.

Hi Jack,

For testing continuity between the CRT grid pin and the grid electrode a
rather safe method is to test grid-cathode as a diode. You have to remove
the socket to isolate the heater from the transformer winding. Supply 6.3 V
to the heater and supply DC between grid and cathode with a suitable series
resistor for current limiting (0.1 mA or so is enough). No other pins used.
Continuity will show up quickly. IIRC 25 V is enough.
This way you don't have to do measurements in the presence of HV.
I hope for you that you can exclude a CRT problem!
