Also don't be afraid to use a Dremel to grind away
any carbon that you see. Of course fill up any

I have a tek-2445 scope with a high voltage problem?
The tripler on the high voltage power is shorting to

tripler.Is there any way of fixing this type of
problem with out replacing the tripler? Im thinking
about trying some silcone rubber sealant or high
voltage putty.
