Does this list have a "parent" website? Or is there a list of relevant

but I know that some of the list's contributors have "Tek" sites, which I
have visited...

I would ask again that anyone who wishes to can place a URL link to their site in the LINKS section of the TekScopes Yahoo site. Also, people who have parts etc to sell, but DON'T have a web site, can send me a message. I will summarize all the information somewhere on the site, and clearly note where it is!

Re: 7704A Repair and modules.

Stan or Patricia Griffiths <w7ni@...>
 

Hi Bob,

There is some possible incompatibility using the 7A16P in a normal 7K
mainframe such as the 7704A. The 7A16P was specifically made to be used with
the 7912AD digitizer and is programmable (that's what the "P" on 7A16P
means). Anyway, I have read a note that says the additional circuitry for
implementing programmability in the 7A16P may overload one or more of the
7704A's power supplies causing some unpredictable results in all the other
circuits powered by them. You might try it with caution. You might get
lucky and not cause any permanent damage and it might even work for you.

There is probably a way to disable some of that extra circuitry in the 7A16P
without damaging it as a nonprogrammable amplifier and reducing the power
supply load to an acceptable level. I have not looked into that yet. Future
project . . .

Good Evening

I have a 7704A mainframe that is in need of repair. I turned it on
this morning after not having been powered up for about 2 years. The
trace was moving around erratically. Then I heard a sizzling sound
(never a good sound) and immediately turned it off but not before a
whisp of smoke emerged from the bottom of the scope.

I live in the Atlanta metro area and would like to find a company or
individual who is able to repair it.

Also I am in need of a horizontal sweep module. I'm not sure what
model I am looking for. This scope will be primarily used for audio
frequency applications. Any hints or suggestions would be very
helpful.

The modules I have are 2 7A26 and 1 7A16P that is also in need of
repair.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Re: 7704A Repair and modules.

Stan or Patricia Griffiths <w7ni@...>
 

As I recall, the reason Tek would not recommend a 7B53 as a timebase for a
7704 is that it will not sweep fast enough to take full advantage of the
7704's 200 MHz bandpass. Other than that, I believe it will work just fine.
An even simpler, and probably cheaper, timebase would be a 7B50 or 7B50A with
does not have the delayed sweep feature. You could even use a 7B51 that is
normally used with a 7B50 to provide delayed sweep but can be used as a simple
timebase without a 7B50. I only suggest the 7B50, 7B50A, and 7B51 because
they might be more available and cheaper than the 7B53/A alternatives. There
was also an earlier version of the 7B53 called the 7B52 which would work as
well . . .

I really need to get on with finishing my second book . . .

The 7B53/7B53A is not recommended for use in the 7704/7704A. I don't
remember why, but I think it was a good reason. The original poster needs
to find a 7B70+7B71, 7B80+7B85, or 7B92/7B92A.

Tektronix Parts.

Michael <mdd@...>
 

Hi all, :)

A couple of times recently there have been mentions of people who hold some
stocks of Tek parts for sale for replacements. (e.g. pots, transistors,
tubes etc).

After a recent rebuild (hopefully the last) of this computer, I have
unfortunately lost the message/s containing this information, and I may need
some parts for a friend's 454.

It seems that it might be a nice idea if there was a list of these people or
organisations, either posted semi-regularly to the list, or on a web site
somewhere.

Does this list have a "parent" website? Or is there a list of relevant
sites somewhere? I have unfortunately lost my old "bookmarks" list as well,
but I know that some of the list's contributors have "Tek" sites, which I
have visited...

Can anyone help...?

Thanks in advance for any help, and regards,
:)

Re: 7704A Repair and modules. 7B53 in faster frames

dd@...
 

Seconded - before I acquired 7B87, later -92As via a package deal: a
7B53 in my 7854 (400 MHz nom) scope worked fine. At fastest sweeps,
with a known ~700 pS risetime pulse - yes, you can see some combo of
delay-line (absent or mismatched?) aberrations on trace start; IIRC
maybe an almost double-pulse clearly "not happening".
Yes, that's what I was talking about... I know it's written up in one of
the manuals or catalogs, but I can't seem to locate it at the moment.
I guess I'm just picky :-) On the other hand, 7B8xs are pretty cheap.

(Still.. it's fun to see the readout say, "500 pSec" on the -92s -
and realize it's even true within 3-5% !!
Most of them will give a solid trigger on a 1GHz signal - a tribute to the
power of tunnel diodes.

needs to remember is: Stay away from <10 nS/DIV - it isn't 'sposed

the built-in dual timebase gets you delayed sweep w/o wasting a
compartment.

Tek 2230 CAL/Var Pot Broken

vincent coppola
 

The pot/switch for the CAL/VAR volts on Ch1 of my 2230
is disfunctional and there is no detent.
Manual says 311-2218-00 Tek part number, but it
describes it as an Allen bradley 10K pot with a
DPST,etc.
Sounds off the shelf but can't be sure until I dive
into it. According to the manual it sounds like a
MAJOR job. Does anyone really no if is a standard POT?

Help appreciated
Vince

Re: Tektronix 466 Storage Scope Knobs Needed

dhuster@...
 

Bill, if you don't mind knobs that aren't perfect, I have enough used
ones to set up. They may be cracked, have a soldering iron ding,
have some paint rubbed off, but they're serviceable. When I was on
the bench at Tek, we were always replacing knobs for cosmetic reasons
and I never threw the old ones away.

7844 mainframe part needed

Hello,

Would anyone have a vertical output hybrid for a 7844? Tek part 155-0064 I believe... If anyone has a 7844, I can email them the necessary pictorial info where the part is and how to remove it (it's a 5 minute job). Any reasonable price considered!

Thanks,

Re: Looking for 465B parts - air filters?

dhuster@...
 

What's REALLY bad about leaving the filter out of the 465/475 scopes
is when they're used "IBM" style -- rear on the floor while working
on equipment. That fan "vacuums" up every dust moozie in sight!

Dean


Re: Looking for 465B parts - air filters?

ashtonb@...
 

Air filters: don't buy Tek and don't go out of your way to find
the
filter material. Head down to your local Dollar General, Dollar
Mart, Everything-Under-A-Dollar or whatever the name of the store
is
that undersells Wallyworld and buy the GENERIC Scotchbrite-like
scrubbing pads and cut them to fit. Get the non-green ones if you
can, for they tend to be even less abrasive than the green ones
(and
the generic green ones don't hold a candle to the real Scotchbrite
for agressiveness). If you're in a really dusty environment, give
the filter material a quick, light shot of Pam (the spray oil for
kitchen use, generic is fine, of course) and wash and respray the
filter monthly.

Hello Dean,

I remember the Filter-Kote (milky water-soluble oil?) days for the
metal filters in the 5xx scopes (!) I've been cutting up the
open-cell foam intended for use as filters for air conditioners - for
the 4xx series. It's usually grey and about right thickness to stay
in place. Really cheap too - maybe $1 for a humongous sheet or 2.
After a few washings, just toss and snip out another. (Seen quite a
few 4xx scopes of late - with the filter left out. Maybe they just
didn't know..)

Just a thot.
