Default A problem with my oscilloscope


I have a problem with my old tube Telequipment 43A oscilloscope, I use a sine wave generator who work perfect and have only .01 % distortion, but wen I feed my oscilloscope with any sine waves it's kind of oscillating alway's at the right side of the sine wave in the screen of the scope. It is doing that only with my scope, so it's not a problem with my sine wave generator.

I include a photo of that, I was very close so it's bit out of focus photo and it's hard to catch the sine with my camera.

What can by the problem ?

That kink in the waveform looks like it might be at a crossover point, so there might be a problem with half of a vertical amplifier. It might also be a power supply problem. The usual method of troubleshooting tube scopes is with a tube tester and confirmation by tube substitution. I'd check the power supplies with a DVM, then try to borrow another scope and work my way through the vertical amplifiers. If the power supply is good, you should also suspect any electrolytic capacitors associated with the amplifiers.
