It's been a few years since i've been here, happy to see you are all still here.

I have spent some time out of the hobby as my ex wife did not approve.
Happy to say i'm back now with my first project since 2012.
This one is a real head scratcher, it's an AWA 206cy with vertical collapse, i've recapped the vertical section and rolled some tubes but still have no result.
I have audio and snow somewhat visible as specs in the horizontal line. i'm hoping someone here could give me a few pointers, the set has a full service history and had a brand new Kinescope fitted in 1973, and had frame collapse soon after. It has excellent emission as a low hours tube.
I would love to get it running, and with that in mind I was wondering if someone here has a service manual and circuit diagram, my plan for this set is to put it to use and I was also wondering if someone here could assist with a circuit or idea of how to give it a switched composite video input, switching between composite and the tuner.

Thanks in advance.

I can help out with a PDF copy of the service manual.

I am away at the moment so it won’t be until the end of the week.

Just a precaution. Turn the brightness down while working on the set. You don't want to burn a line across the screen.

Good luck.

Thanks MonochromeTV.

Way ahead of you Wayne, cut my teeth on VCRs and TV sets from the 90s onwards.

Try briefly connecting via a 1k resistor the heater pin on the Vertical O/P tube to the grid and see if you get any sort of vert deflection. This isolates the fault to either vert osc or vert o/p. Voltage measurements as always are the 1st thing to check. Very low volts on the vert o/p anode could be an o/c vert o/p transformer. Not an uncommon fault on older sets.
