Remember when your tv picture was scrambled on the screen and moving up and down and the only way to fix it was v and h hold? ?

Remember when you turned your vhf or uhf knob to a channel and the channel came in but was scrambled and either moving vertical or horizontal.

Then you had to adjust your vertical or horizontal hold to descramble the picture and to make it stay in place on the screen?

Remember how annoying that was? The picture was never ever perfect but still had a distorted line running across the bottom? 

Then it would go from black and white and you had to adjust your color adjust knob to stabilize the color on the screen?

    That was a looonnnggg time ago.

    The reason for jiggling the channel knob making it work

    was that the tuner's switch contacts needed cleaning

    and maybe some careful reshaping, too.

    I never had much of that kind of trouble, so it didn't become annoying.
