Some time the routeing of the power cord will cause shorts on tubes that are checked in the 9 pin socket on A TV-7D/U after the unit is put back in the box.
My 6BQ5's test fine on my TV-7 D/U.
Not much room, there no choice but to route cord same as original.
I did put a new grounded Cord assembly on mine. But it is routed the exact same route as the original.
For sure I will take it apart and see if it makes any difference.
I almost threw 2 good 6BQ5's in the trash.
Found this old post ??????
