I've been amassing a pretty large collection of these old scopes, and it's about time I got to trying to fix them.
About half of the ones I run across and buy don't have traces. I don't need to get them in perfect working order again, but I'd at least like to get a trace on them. So what do I look for first?
I know resistors' values change over time, and the capacitors are big culprits, right? What about CRTs? Do they just "go bad" from sitting for 50 years? And what about the transformers? I can't really see a transformer just going bad, because you'd have to somehow manage to break one of the windings in it, correct?
Anyway, thanks a heap for the help.
