Your emails are welcome, but before you send us a message, you should read this page.
We receive the same questions again and again, and most of the answers are already on
this site. Why waste our time and wait several days for our response, when you can
find the information you are looking for right now?
Here are some of the more common questions we are asked, and the answers or appropriate
Can you please send me schematics for my scope?
We do not provide free schematics, because they are very complex and only useful in the
context of an entire service manual. If you don't have a service manual for your scope,
you should get one right away. (See next question)
Where can I get a service manual for my scope?
Tektronix service manuals are worth their weight in gold. They contain complete schematic
diagrams, circuit descriptions, calibration instructions, and operating instructions. In
short, everything you need to know about using and maintaining your scope is in the service
manual. Used Tektronix service manuals are often sold on ebay. A number of individuals sell
these manuals as well. They are listed on the following page of our site:

I need a probe for my scope. Which probe will work with my model?
We get this question a lot. The answer depends on many factors, including your scope type,
your needs, your budget, and availability of probes. Choosing a scope probe is covered on
the following page of our site:
