I can't beleive you've never had a VT220 with horizontal hold problems.
If you get that fault, the cure for 99% of them is to pull the cover,
twiddle the horizontal hold preset back and forth a few times, re-set it
to the original position, and give it a try. Most of the time you'll get
a good picture again.
The fact hat the 'right point' is still at the original setting seems to
prove it's not something else drifting in the terminal. It's bad contacts
at that preset.
