FYI,

Found this HP description of a TEK HYPCON connector

Following the manual directions, carefully remove the hybrid, clean the contacts with isopropyl alcohol (91% or more), dry, and reassemble.

It appears that the vertical is working since I can make the vertical line grow and shrink (vertically) by varying the v/div or by varying the input signal. However, the entire trace, and the readout, is compressed to a single vertical line.
