I am not sure what you are saying when you say thattoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
C808 tests at 0.0 ohms. Do you perhaps mean 0.0 uf?
Typically, when ripple gets to be that excessive, the
capacitor's internal connection has been etched away
and is open circuit, or the capacitor's electrolyte
has dried up. The capacitance goes to near zero uf.
As a temporary fix, you can get back in business by
paralleling just about anything across the original
capacitor at its terminals. Even as little as 1/10th
the correct value will sometimes be close for the circuitry
to limp along and work. Tektronix was very generous
with its margins.
