Does anyone have any vertical hold problems with the AWA TV sets shown here, AWA P1P, or P1T. I would love to hear from anyone who has vertical hold problems with these sets and has tried to fix it with a scope and schematic. I tried replacing the 6BM8 with no luck. I.m just guessing here, could be a component drift. I am a collector of black and white TV sets, please have a look at my other posts.

They are fairly reliable for a valve TV but can develop a variety of faults.

There is a common failure in the vertical deflection circuits that causes loss of vertical hold. C319 which is a 0.0068μF capacitor was usually a waxed paper ducon and will be guaranteed to be leaky by now. It needs to have a high voltage rating around 1500 volts so you'll need to shop around to find the right part. Replace it before looking for other faults.
