Re: TEK 475: Dead on Start Up.


I believe that you would be better off changing to a modern and higher voltage rated tantalum cap rather than substituting in a potentially inferior performing aluminum electrolytic cap. This will keep the circuits closer to the original design, but the higher voltage rated caps should give more margin of safety. My 2 cents and how I repair the scopes that come across the bench.
