Default Re: Best 100MHz analogue oscilloscope?

I have three Tek 24xx series scopes in various places. I think they've all got the infamous Rifa exploding capacitors in. They've all gone snap-crackle-pop at various points in the past and I've done precisely nothing about it, just left them. The dirty secret is that they continue to work just fine afterwards so, until one of the injured capacitors breaks down and starts tripping circuit breakers or I have some weird EMC conducted emissions problem from their power supplies, it's just not worth the trouble of fixing them. They've all been in that state for about 10 years, in frequent (professional) use.

Let the Rifas do the sweating, not you.

What's going on in the workshop?
