The 88-inch cyclotron Dee probe shows large losses inside the radius of 20 cm and suggests problems in the ion beam injection. The current of the top and bottom innermost trim coil 1 is unbalanced to study effects of the axial injection displacement. A new beam profile monitor images the ion beam bunches, turn by turn, and the beam center of mass position is measured. The technique allows increasing the beam transmission through the cyclotron.
