Yeah, it'd be satisfying to know. Whatever it was, it was pretty active - it even corroded the metallized interior coating of the plastic case  over a several square-inch area in the left rear corner (i.e. the side away from the display and power supply).

Well, no battery to explain it. The caps in the power supply look good, although I guess it could be a replacement power supply. Still, the distribution doesn't seem right for even an exploded cap, as the metallized lining is clean over the entire power supply area.

The only (maybe) clue is a small brownish dried-liquid stain on the inside of the top of the front-panel/case. I suppose that might indicate something spilled onto the top of the scope and drizzled inside - the outside was clean but of course that could have been wiped off. If I was a real detective, I guess I could lick the stain to see if it tasted like coffee or coke, but...
