PA1000 Freezing During Measurements

Post by jansl-ls » July 20th, 2018, 5:30 am


The Tektronix PA 1000 Power Analyzer we are using has started to freeze randomly during testing. The display locks up, and no key presses seem to unfreeze it. I am unable to access the menu, and the only way to get it to work again is to turn the unit off and on again. This works for a few minutes before the screen freezes.

I would first try updating to the latest instrument firmware (V1.3.15) if not already at this level. I that does not resolved the locking up of the instrument, it should be returned for repair.
