Title: Tektronix P6245 Active Probe issues with config data
Post by: snoopy on March 03, 2017, 12:11:24 am
Hi

Just got a 2nd hand Tek P6245 Active Probe. Probe seems to work but the scope (TDS784A) cannot read the configuration data from the probe and as such cannot run a probe compensation procedure which results in "Probe comp failed".

I note that the probe has TDS500/600 written on it but I thought the newer scopes would still be able to read the data. What data is stored in the EPROM ?

Any thoughts ?

Cheers
