Re: 485 service manual is causing brain oscillations

Yeah yours is fixed, I still think I have a problem there because it says
to reset it back to noted voltage but in my case the trimpot setting has no
impact on the voltage value.

Your manual is later updated version without typo.

This is what My manual says: (sorry for the poor picture..)
The last time I calibrated my 485 this worked...

Hello to the group,

Is anybody on here familiar closely with 485 calibration? In particular
the Auto Focus section.

There is a time continuum breach making my brain go into feedback loop
self destruct.

It's point 13) If I simplify it, it says put 3MHz in Channel 1, display
nice 2 divisions high sinewave and adjust focus and astigmatism at low
intensity for sharp trace. That works perfectly.
Next step is to raise intensity to 50V and check if focus bias does
anything, if it does you continue the procedure if it does not you are
advised to skip forward to 13. This is where my brain melts. Because 13
definitely skip backwards and it says nothing about how to resolve this

In my case focus bias does nothing with Z out voltage at all nor does
anything with actual focus.

Any ideas?
