Title: Repair Documents and Links
Post by: tautech on July 12, 2014, 03:46:19 pm
I would like to start this thread rolling with a great TEK  troubleshooting PDF that should be had by anyone with a CRT scope.

http://www.sphere.bc.ca/test/tek-parts/troubleshooting-scopes.pdf (http://www.sphere.bc.ca/test/tek-parts/troubleshooting-scopes.pdf)

Note www.sphere.bc.ca is a good source for Tek and other scope parts.


Here's a x reference pdf for Tek parts:
http://bee.mif.pg.gda.pl/ciasteczkowypotwor/Tek/publikacje/Common_Design_Parts_Catalog_Semiconductors.pdf (http://bee.mif.pg.gda.pl/ciasteczkowypotwor/Tek/publikacje/Common_Design_Parts_Catalog_Semiconductors.pdf)
There's another here:
http://www.sphere.bc.ca/test/tekequiv.html (http://www.sphere.bc.ca/test/tekequiv.html)
But the best one is at the foot of that page. Sphere ask that it not be linked so you can find it yourself and download it for reference. Be warned, it's a zipped PDF 27 Mb.

For all things Tek:
http://w140.com/tekwiki/wiki/Main_Page (http://w140.com/tekwiki/wiki/Main_Page)



If you have something to contribute and you can't provide a link, post a quick description and attach it in a format the forum allows.  :-+
By all means re-visit to edit links and posts to keep this a great resource for the future.
Thanks EEVbloggers. 

See how this thread goes, but I would hope that content is primarily documents and links.



For newbies opening repair threads:
Use the following posted links to find a service manual for your broken equipment and be sure to include that link into your thread so we can all play along and help easily.

Here's a picture of it.

Post by: miguelvp on October 10, 2014, 07:10:36 am
There is at least one on ebay
http://www.ebay.com/itm/King-KY-196A-and-KY-197A-Com-Service-Manual-/380856480625 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/King-KY-196A-and-KY-197A-Com-Service-Manual-/380856480625)

So it does exist

Maybe this link?
http://www.tousenvol.com/files_storage/Bendix_King_KY%20196A_installation_manual.pdf (http://www.tousenvol.com/files_storage/Bendix_King_KY%20196A_installation_manual.pdf)

It does say installation but it has schematics (Edit: not really just diagrams :( but it's the same as the one on ebay)
Title: Re: Repair Documents and Links
Post by: Richard Head on October 14, 2014, 05:15:36 am
Miguelvp

Appreciate the link but it's only a wiring diagram. I require full schematics.
Hopefully I can get a pdf of the schematics somewhere without having to purchase the service manual.
I'll probably never use it again.

Post by: TheSlider on October 31, 2014, 04:33:28 pm
I've been searching all over the net for any Intron DSO-2020A documents (schematics if possible) but it seems too old to have any available although someone in an other forum said they had some in 2008. Not sure if i'd dig up the topic again...
The only thing i found is a reference to the older model here:http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/intron_storage_oscilloscope_dso.html and a picture of the one I have here : http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/intron_digital_storage_oscilloscope_dso_2020a.html#b (http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/intron_digital_storage_oscilloscope_dso_2020a.html#b)

Fun fact, the one I have has the CRT cover of the DSO-2000... I think someone tinkered with it before I got my hands on it and decided to have a laugh but since they both use the same CRT model, it doesn't surprise me that much.
Anyway, it powers up and I get the trigger led to light when tinkering with the knobs but the screen remains silent. I haven't tested it any further yet but I'm sure I'll find something bad in there.  :-BROKE

Anyway, I'd be happy if someone could point me in the right direction for the docs. Is there a website for really old stuff ? The links provided in the previous posts don't list any Intron stuff like they don't exist. I have to say though that this scope was made in the Netherlands according to the back plate.

EEVblog members,
Not wishing to dismiss the credit due to those that have contributed to this thread, should I edit the OP and add all worthy links to the first post?
What is an appropriate order/method?  :-//

Sure this is only a short thread thus far but I'd hope on my demise that another member that has posted on the first page continue to condense the list of links.

http://artekmanuals.com/ (http://artekmanuals.com/) has very reasonably priced high quality scans of obsolete test equipment.

It claims "Over 100,000 PDF manuals sold world-wide since 2001", and (after buying them for a Tek492 SA) I see no reason to doubt it.

Not sure if this is the right place to post to but....

Looking for the schematic/circuit for a Vision Engineering Alpha Microscope PSU main PCB.

I salvaged a much used and abandoned microscope for home use.
Initially the lamps were flickering at about 2Hz which I cured by replacing the main Electrolytic, but now at power up, the circuit takes several attempts to ramp up to full light level.

I have gathered up data sheets for the ICs and I am hoping that someone has a schematic/circuit diagram before I have to trace out the board.

I believe the problem area is the Triac (MAC223A-8-ON) driven by a Zilog (Z86E0412PSC) that produces the lamp level PWM?, so anyone with experience of this type of circuit I would appreciate hearing from you.
I have yet to start probing the board with my scope, but this will be my first use of it, so I am doing a lot of reading up before I start poking into a live board.

Thanks in anticipation.

Welcome to the forum.

It's not really but as a newbie we'll forgive you.  :)

You should start a new topic in this main Repair board and you'll get better visibility and more views.
Use the brand and model in the thread title and start the post by asking for manuals and/or schematics.
You might have to draw out the circuit and/or take some pics so others can help you fix it but those might be down the track a bit yet.
Good luck with it, seems a very worthwhile repair.

There probably are some more dead capacitors on the board, likely around 47-220uF, and replacing those should cure the problem.

For those new to scopes and CRO's the first few minutes if this old vid from Tek is useful to understanding the functions of moving an electron beam to create a waveform on a CRO display.
This simple explanation also helps one understand what might be involved on repair of CRO's.
