Re: still trying to track down 2216 manuals

Colin, thanks that was my thought also. Checked with the site nothing there. I did send him an email letting him know that Q service had a complete service manual with schematics for the 2212 on CD it is also on ebay.

My post was relating to Bill K7WXW's earlier post (see below). I don't own a 2216; I was just trying to help. I don't know if your suggestion has possibilities or not....

Colin, have you tried the Vintage TEK Museum in Beaverton Oregon? they have a good collection of original Tek manuals.

I don't know whether this is at all valid, but after doing a bit of searching with Bing, I found this:

It claims to be Tektronix 2216, 4 Channel digital Storage Oscilloscope Service Manual for $20 and is 332 pages. Oddly, they state that the Operator's Manual is "Not Available" which we know is untrue. Since the User Manual is 328 pages, I'm inclined to think it is that.
Is it worth a punt?

I've search through the archives here and saw the 2014(?) discussion on the 2216 service manual. I have copies of the partial manuals for the 2216 and 2212. Alas, no schematics. Yet.

I am surmising that the manuals' unavailability is related to the fact that both the 2212 and the 2216 were designed in Heerenveen. I would guess that they were only manufactured in Holland and repaired at the Benelux Repair Center. Since Benelux was closed in 2000 as part of the Tek breakup, who knows what happened to the stock of manuals? I am hoping that they all didn't end up in the tip.

Unfortunately, I am now in "dog chasing bone" mode now wrt to finding documentation. Does anyone know if there's a European-based Tek fan or alumni club? I want to see if I can track down anyone that worked in Benelux. So as not to inflict my obsession on others, I can be contacted off list, my call sign at arrl dot net.
