Default Small issue with Rigol Oscilloscope probe

I have recently bought a Rigol RGT-DS1052E and I am very happy with it.

Unfortunately, I have noticed a small problem with one of the probes.
When I attach the plastic accessory with the hook, I am getting an oscillation of about 50mV. Unfortunately I did not have the chance to further debug the problem and I am currently away, but I would love to hear of any suggestion from the more experienced users.

I will do some more tests today and get abck to you with more info.

Try connecting the ground lead to the tip of the accessory with the hook. If problem goes away, what you are seeing is not an osicallation but noise. Most likely man made.

It was noise coming from my nearby soldering station...
Thanks a lot

No big deal. Sounds like you have the tools needed to enjoy the hobby.
