The problem was indeed caused by defective trimcaps: I started by replacing 4 (four !) open trimcaps in Ch2, made preliminary adjustments and took another picture. See album.

I'd never have thought that practically (?) all trimcaps of the problem-type would be defective in the one unit but then again, it *is* a systemic problem.

Thanks to John and Roger for your help and suggestions!
