Re: 7B92 with no repeating sweep

Dave Peterson

Good morning Jeff,

I'm chiming in because I've had somewhat similar experience with a 465 which suffered problems with the socketing of the sweep control IC. I found that reseating brought the sweep back - usually. Meaning that the chip was ok and it was the classic old Tek socket issue. I ordered some backups from the auction site and I recall the sellers listing saying that they were recovered from a 7B92. I see in the TekWiki doc that U310 is either a 155-0049-00 or 155-0049-01 based on SN. So your time base has that and is likely socketed.

Also I found very helpful in understanding sweep circuits and diagnosis.

Good luck with it!
