still trying to track down 2216 manuals

bill K7WXW
 

I've search through the archives here and saw the 2014(?) discussion on the 2216 service manual. I have copies of the partial manuals for the 2216 and 2212. Alas, no schematics. Yet.

I am surmising that the manuals' unavailability is related to the fact that both the 2212 and the 2216 were designed in Heerenveen. I would guess that they were only manufactured in Holland and repaired at the Benelux Repair Center. Since Benelux was closed in 2000 as part of the Tek breakup, who knows what happened to the stock of manuals? I am hoping that they all didn't end up in the tip.

Unfortunately, I am now in "dog chasing bone" mode now wrt to finding documentation. Does anyone know if there's a European-based Tek fan or alumni club? I want to see if I can track down anyone that worked in Benelux. So as not to inflict my obsession on others, I can be contacted off list, my call sign at arrl dot net.

I don't know whether this is at all valid, but after doing a bit of searching with Bing, I found this:

http://www.jetecnet.com/others.html

It claims to be Tektronix 2216, 4 Channel digital Storage Oscilloscope Service Manual for $20 and is 332 pages. Oddly, they state that the Operator's Manual is "Not Available" which we know is untrue. Since the User Manual is 328 pages, I'm inclined to think it is that.
Is it worth a punt?
Colin.

Colin, have you tried the Vintage TEK Museum in Beaverton Oregon? they have a good collection of original Tek manuals.

Q service has a 2212 service manual on CD on ebay for 14.99 they are saying it has the large pages also, so I'm guessing that means the schematics included?

Jim,
My post was relating to Bill K7WXW's earlier post (see below). I don't own a 2216; I was just trying to help. I don't know if your suggestion has possibilities or not....

Hey Bill,

you might try to ping the Vintage Tek museum folks and see whether they
have the service manual on fiche. There's a tentative index of the
instruments covered in this posting:
https://vintagetek.org/microfiche-scans/, which does have the 2212, but it
doesn't say whether this includes the service manual.

Thanks for the help, all. I have a lead on the 2216 service manual. The 2216 operators manual is at the vintage tek museum website. It will be interesting to see how much the 2212 and the 2216 have in common. Cheers, bill

Jim Olson <v_12eng@...>
 

Colin, thanks that was my thought also. Checked with the site nothing there. I did send him an email letting him know that Q service had a complete service manual with schematics for the 2212 on CD it is also on ebay.

I have one of the 2216's and the original owners manual (in poor condition) and would love to find a service manual (electronic preferred).
If there are any updates on this thread it would be appreciated.
Also I have the rack mount 'ears' but the 'inserts' that go into the side 'holes' that hold the scope into the brackets are missing.
Does anyone have pictures or source of these little guys?
Looks like there are four per bracket.

Thanks for any tidbits on this nice 'digitizing' analog scope :)
