Hitachi 51SWX20B green moving around back and forth (not convergence)

Hi, might remember I have this Hitachi 51SWX20B chassis DP27, Aug
2002. Bear with me, it's very frustrating and owner is nagging. Kip,
you might want to see the images. Also to Kip and others, if you
still want to send info or your experiences, let me know with and for
Kip, please tell me how big the files are.

Here's two links of pictures of this green vertical lines noise, 22K
close up and 33K area in general respectively:

These two pictures, ignore the misconvergence, this is not the issue
since I have already replaced the generator module. The green only
moved from it's usual position to the right with this fainter vertical
line in erratic way and very intermittently comes together back to
normal with "ghost lines & vertical green misconvergence" disappeared
for awhile. Then problem reappears, diappears erratically can take
hours in span. And it does intermittently moves like a jitter with
that faint noise ahead more farther or less in sync with the main
green vertical lines displacement. Move to right, the fainter noise
is more farther it is. More to the right into convergence with the R
and B, fainter lines less apart, sometimes disappears.

It is the green only since did blinded the blue, red and green with a
len cap to make sure. This seems to make me think the green somehow
is "delayed" with noise added to it.

What I have done: replaced convergence generator module, TA1360N
(I401), checked electrolytic capacitors, measured ohms. including
three CRT boards (dealing with metal shield is a pain but easily
Heat & cold, tapping, flexing treatments does not affect this. I
would be really very surprised if that is really the convergence ICs,
oh yes, unplugged all VM coils to no effect.

Also, is there a way to SEE the noise on scope like that? I have hard
time looking for the "noise" in sea of video waveforms.
