6517B power issues

Post by dpwong » August 9th, 2021, 3:47 am


We have a 6517B device that was working fine prior to the problem.

Currently, as we turned it on, nothing seems to appear. And after sometime, there is blinking on the front right side (where there is a label voltage source operate is).

We have checked the fuse and the power source and we are sure that this isn`t the problem since there is another 6517B that is working using the same fuse and power source.

Any idea what would be the problem?

Since there is some blinking light, I agree the fuse is OK.
Unfortunately it seems that the 6517B will require repair at the service center.

Hi dpwong

I suggest you look at my post. Maybe we have the same problem.
