I think I will pursue my aim in getting a model with the CTT option asthe triggers are routed through the option board, you get higher jitter and
As mentioned the later model will be less likely to need the capacitorsMany of the 2465Bs have SMT on the A5 control/readout board. There are SMT
capacitors on that board that are extremely prone to leakage, and probably
ought to be changed ASAP.
The other maintenance is the NVRAM. It's a Dallas chip with a built-in
battery, and when the battery goes, so do your calibration constants.
My 2467 has a date code of 85 on the keeper, and it's still going strong,
though as I'm equipped to calibrate the scope I'm not too worried.
The counter is not a reliable indicator of the lifetime usage. The
calibration procedure has a step "CAL 05", where one step is "d. Press and
release the lower TRIGGER SOURCE and then press and release the lower
TRIGGER MODE to reset HRS ON and PWR ON/OFF to zero." - e.g. the intent
seems to be to count hours from last calibration.
If there's a calibration sticker on it, you can perhaps extrapolate to the
