First up, a disclaimer, I am an electronics beginner so please don't assume too much!
I have recently acquired a Tektronix 465B and HP 8011A pulse generator as a package deal. All seemed to be working well and I was playing around with the scope learning how it all worked. All the functions that a new, inexperienced in electronics, user would be expected to find seemed to be fine. Then I forgot to turn off the signal generator before I turned the scope back on while it was hooked up. What I observed is as follows:
1. The power light comes on
2. The lights behind the volts/div, indicating the selected setting, also came on for a short period before immediately going out
3. The screen then proceeded to light up slowly with a very diffuse glow on the right hand side of the screen
The fan -may- have also stopped although this could just be due to the auto start up sequence... although as this is analog I expect the fan is based of a thermistor of some sort? so as it had been running and was already warm it should have kept going?
Following this tragedy the last step is all that happens on a restart with no input. The focus does seem to have some effect (very minimal) and other lights come on when the corresponding buttons are pushed.
No magic smoke was seen/smelt escaping.
I have attached two images below showing the current state of the scope (you -may- be able to see that it is faintly glowing on the rhs of the screen) and the settings for the pulse generator when it all went south.
As I said before, I am a novice, although the reason I got hold of this scope is to learn electronics and this may be a good (or bad) way to dive into the deep end straight up. I am very willing to try fix it myself with a little advice from the gurus here.
Essentially I am asking very humbly if those of you with experience in these matters think that I have a chance of fixing this and if so how do I go about it?
