Default Tektronix 2213A what to do next

Hello there,

Now that I bought this 60MHz Oscilloscope from a sidewalk sale. No idea it will work or not, it has no probes, no manual, however there is one homebrew lead RG59 when I touch it then it show this. I guess it(CRT) is working some what and bought the thing as is with cdn$500 cash no hope of refund or return just a gamble instinct as from reading the forum a scope is a must have item/tool for diyers. Hope it is worth as the saler claimed.

So I try to find out what I can do with the scope and what I should avoid using the scope without causing damage to it and myself. I wish there is a WIKI for how to utilize a scope at least for beginners that never use one before...

Default pass/fail test

Try this:

1) Take the RG59 center conductor and stick it in the round hole on the front panel marked "Probe Adjust" (on the right side of your first photo, about 2/3 down); you should see a square wave on the screen. Experiment with amplitude, time base, and trigger controls until you know the basics.

2) If the scope passes the above test, buy some used 1X probes, or some adapters and test clips.

3) Invite an Electrical Engineer over for a beer and ask him/her to put it through it's paces (or you could start with this step, since the EE will know a lot about steps 1 and 2).

2 chris_ma:

This is a nice scope, very reliable.

You will get more out of it with a proper operating manual:

download here: bama.sbc.edu or faster: bama.edebris.edu.

There is a Tektronix 2213 operating manual for download, whic his 99.9% compatible to the 2213A.

good luck!
