Did you try pressing power button several times? I don't have scope at hand, but I remember there was some confusing behavior. Like, one press was just to show batery charge, and the second press was to actually boot the device.

I have a different issue: it randomly power ups when I plug/unplug charger from mains :(. This is annoying as it turns on when I switch off my lab (I have a central power switch).
I have the same behaviour on mine. A recent firmware version has improved things a bit but there is some 'getting used to' involved.
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

Hi,
 thanks for the suggestions, but every time I try it out at the workshop, power button works first press. Whenever I get it out in front of a customer it starts playing silly buggers, which is annoying because its such a good tool otherwise.

That's because power button behaves differently when it's on mains.

I do not plug it in to the mains when I get back to the workshop to test it, as there would be no point. I am trying to find the fault which is present on battery power.

Well, problem solved. The charger board was bad, after changing it scope works fine. The spare went through Batronix first and thats why it took a little more time, but overall very good service Micsig, thanks.

Seems like mine may have a problem with the power socket, last time it played up out in the field I plugged/unplugged the power lead without any power connected and it has been working fine ever since, still cant get it to act up in the workshop, but pretty sure the socket or something nearby on the pcb is responsible.

A new model has appeared on the Micsig site. STO1000 which looks to be a TO1000 but with extra knobs and buttons. No price listed.

New firmware (v343) has appeared as well if you set the TO1000 to Chinese. It adds the automotive features listed for the ATO1000 version of the scope. You'll need a license key to unlock it.

Recent revisions seem to be missing the standby (suspend?) mode.
Now it can display a protocol of decoded messages (i2c, UART, etc.). Unfortunately you can't use the message list and waveform display at the same time.

Ahh. I was wondering why that popup looked different but couldn't work out why. I never use the standby mode normally so didn't notice.

Poking around in the v343 firmware shows additional model codes like ADS-4574T. Micsig are making scopes for somebody called AKTAKOM now. They've got the handheld and mini tablet Micsig scopes under their own name + model codes.

My TO1102 is loosing date & time if it is powered off for more than a few days.
It this behavior normal or is there a (empty?) coin cell for RTC?

Mine did that yesterday as well. Just saw that there is some kind of cell on Mike's teardown video in the bottom right corner near the barcode. It is soldered in so presumably it is rechargeable? Not cracking mine open to check though...

Ah, that's very typical in Russia. There are some legal requirements for equipment to have some national certificates and to be listed in local lists of "approved equipment". Because of this one can't just buy a Siglent/Rigol/whatever for any "serious" work (esp. if doing development for government). So, companies rebadge equipment, certify it, and sell as their own. Another company trying to sell same equipment probably would need to have a separate certificate.

Sometimes rebadged equipment comes with local calibration certificates (foreign certificates are not valid, if I'm not mistaken, as they are not certified by the state).

Uhm, interesting. I thought it's a local Russian brand (based on search in google, but turned out results highly depends on location). Still, aktakom.com and tmatlantic.com are on the same server. This makes me thinking the whole purpose of tmatlantic.com is to promote aktakom.

Code: [Select]
$ host aktakom.com
aktakom.com has address 205.178.136.10
$ host tmatlantic.com
tmatlantic.com has address 205.178.136.10

Micsig support could inform when a new firmware is released. In addition, it could also explain the improvements implemented in each firmware. It would be good to decide to upgrade or not.

Hmm. Interesting. I wonder how well the Android firmware will work and whether they'll backport it to the older TO1000s.

The original message was deleted,but if the question is "does it support to1104", then I can say I tried it about a year ago and it worked. But I don't trust software that is not on google play.

Nah. I'm not talking about the remote control app. hgjdwx wrote a review of a STO1000 on a Chinese forum and mentioned that it ran Linux but it was going to get Android based firmware instead at some point.

Ah, STO1000 ... TO1000 series has only 256Mb RAM for applications (not to be confused with  separate 1Gb or so for acquisition or something). I'd say it's not enough :(.
