Using an Oscilloscope to diagnose ?
« on: June 27, 2019, 08:48:24 PM »
Hi All,

I recently acquired a Tektronix 222 Oscilloscope and I would like to know how to test the output of the handhelds, I still have no real way of testing these.. or do I now with this Scope ??

I own and Run Links Repair Shop in Norwich. I coined the phrase 'The Dyson Doctor" in 1995 but at the time I was not able to buy the domain, I lived on Corfu where there was no internet and by the time I came back to the UK that name was used everywhere !

Better off with a multimeter Nik.
The scope is overkill and only usefull for seeing ripple or digital pulses.

It can measure voltage but much easier with a meter
The only way to fail is not to try.
