I've been putting together a box of TV serviceman's odds & ends. I think there is a service chart in there. I may have some Sam's or Tab handbooks along that line too. I no longer collect TV's since the digital changeover and I am slowly finding these bits scattered around, that need to go away...

Hint:

If the lady complains that the set was much better before it stopped, ask
her to look at the screen as a number of pictures roll up and away. Then tweak the
vertical hold and tell her say stop, when she sees one she likes.

:D

I have a troubleshooting chart for problems with tubes that came with a old cheap Schumacher home filament tester.

No every TV man did not have those charts. Many that I knew were even smart enough to repair the sets without them.

Our TV repair license exam, written exam was night 1, Night 2 practical part involved
a VTVM, a scope, and a working chassis. The written exam took about 2 hours.

The first question was use the VTVM to measure the grid voltage of the horizontal output
tube. You would be doomed if you didn't set the probe to DC. Next, you had to tell what
the waveform on the scope was from in the TV, without looking at the chassis. After that,
just a few questions. Ten minutes max. They could tell a lot by just watching you. It was 1964.
