This could be an AGC problem if the picture appears overloaded. However, if
the picture is normal except unstable, the sync separate is the place to

White screens are a worst case video pattern for sync separators, and will
cause an erratic shift in the vertical multivibrator trigger level unless
the horizontal and video information is filtered out [integrated] prior to
driving the vertical sync input of the processor IC.
This will show up with a scope as high frequency noise going into the
vertical sync input.
Look for a small electrolytic [in fact, all of them], around 1-10 uF or so
near the deflection/sync processor IC. Often simply increasing the value of
this cap will help.
