Re: Challenging 2465 PS repair

Hello all,

thanks for the input while I was waiting for parts to arrive.

Most of them are here now, so I started with building the dummy-loads for testing the Power supply.

My weird mind has a question: the service manual says to use 2 pcs of 2 ohm resistors to load the 5VD output, however, the manual does not say whether they should be in series or parallel?
I put them in parallel, because if they needed something like 4 Ohm, they just would have used a 3.9 Ohm resistor.

For the 3uF I used 3x1uF in parallel.

I added a picture of the dummy-load(s) here: https://groups.io/g/TekScopes/album?id=263466

To be continued,

Leo
