There should be a 74166 or 74165 shift register somewhere that serializes the output from the char ROM. If one of its inputs is bad, you'll get vertical bars or flickering every 8 pixels. If you mean every 8 chars you have the whole char flickering, you should look at the address counter for the screen memory access.
