In thread about the B&K 1076 Television Analyst, Phil Nelson recommended a book titled Television Analyzing Simplified
by Milton S. Kiver
as a good tutorial on the use of the B&K Television Analyst. I purchased this book some time ago but never got around to reading it. Since it was recommended, I thought I would take some time to read it hoping I could learn to do a little more with my very similar B&K 1077B Television Analyst.
The first two sections of this book describes traditional TV troubleshooting using an Oscilloscope - and that section is so well written it got me to taking another look at the circuitry in my Zenith 24G26 Porthole TV. I have an Oscilloscope and wished I had read this book when I had my TV on the workbench so I could witness the actual signals. I also have a B&K 1077B and want to learn a little more about using this with television circuitry. The first two sections in this book helped a lot but I know there is a lot for me yet to learn.
One thing I noted in my 24G26 circuit is that the Sync Amp amplifies the signal before sending the signal to the Sync Sep - opposite from the description in this book. Also, it looks to me like the Video Amp also serves as the Sound IF amplifier. Have I got this correct?
