What's the actual error?
.SET TTY SCOPE 
works for me 
.SET TT SCOPE
gives me
? CAN'T  - DEVICE DOESN'T EXIST

What specifically is the error you're seeing? Note that you can't abbreviate TTY

Following the documentation I used SET TTY NO SCOPE in sims to revert of printing terminal erase handling and this worked fine.  Now I'd like to revert to video terminal erase handling but sim says "Non-existent device" to SET TTY SCOPE.

What am I doing wrong?

The SET command is specific to versions of OS/8.  Can you paste in the start-up message you get that gives the OS/8 version?
For example, this shows I'm running OS/8 V3D with V3Q of the keyboard monitor and V1F of CCL.  As you see SET TTY SCOPE and SET TTY NOSCOPE works.  I'm surprised that "NOSCOPE" and "NO SCOPE" made no complaints.
