The power supply may still be causing the same issue, if you look at D5 pin 9, which is the clock input to the address counter and of considerably lower quality on the broken PET. If, after switching DIS.ON, the power supply is kind of "drained", the counter may simply "miss" the first pulse, causing the exact syndrome (as with the previous assumption that a spike would clear the counter after DIS.ON going on). Now for the cause of the power supply, peek around the power supply voltage regulators with the scope. All four regulators have the same input. Compare the output of the regulators with each other and with the good PET. If all regulators show the same pattern on the broken PET, look at the inputs, maybe the capacitors are going away (there are some in the PET's case, right? I can't see any of the big ones usually used for power regulation on the board picture you uploaded - you could probably swap boards with the good PET then, if you haven't done so yet to check that). If only one voltage regulator shows that problem, it's most likely that regulator.
