New Member Dead 7704


I brought my old 7704 (non A) down from the attic the other day to find that the CRT is dead.
I see a quick flash upon power down but, other then that, there is no display.
I am guessing that the HV power supply has kicked the bucket.
I've done no diag since I know the voltage is high and my knowledge doesn't extend to testing deadly secondary potential.
I've never had the covers off or had any work done (in 20 years).
Is this a serviceable part or do I need to source a known good power supply?
I'm hoping it's something as simple as a re cap but this might be a bit beyond me.

If any of you guys would Elmer me through this resto project, I'd be much obliged!
No rush.

The only other scope I have is an old Velleman hand held that works occasionally. I have some basic Ham survival tools.
I planned to gear up around this old main frame for radio alignments and things of that nature.
Overkill I know.

Off topic; Also in my attic, there is an old pre war Allen B Dumont "oscillograph" I played with when I was a kid.
I'd like to get that one working again some day. Just for fun.
