old vs new P6245, scopes don't like the old

Post by labrat57 » July 5th, 2017, 1:33 am

I'm trying to use old P6245 probes (40V-max, dark grey/medium grey body, ####aaa sn's like '2000BPQ') with an older TDS7154, v2.5.3 2004 FW.
Both old probes are working fine with a 1103 external TekProbe power supply.
My newer P6245's work fine (15V-max, light grey bodies, B01#### sn).
Both fail with "The probe attached to CH_ requires support features not provided by this oscilloscope".
I don't have an older TekProbe scope (500/600) to try them on.
I assume that the EEPROM is being read and the scopes FW doesn't like it, but why? What can be done about it (rewrite the EEPROM with the new format copied from a B01#### probe?).

How do you connect the sensors?

I have to keep myself afloat these few first months of the year. To be more specific, two. Have paid off "everything" on Message Loans now. Had two $1,500 loans back to back and paid two invoices not related to the loans, and now I am flat broke. My question now is what is best: 1: Apply for a payday loan WI again - what can I expect to borrow now once again after handling my payments, do you think? Can you hope for the maximal amount of loan again you think? Or go to overdraft on my card? I know the credit card fees will turn out to be more expensive in the end, but I am not sure I will be approved for a third loan in under 6 months.

The main advantage of the credit card generator is that it allows users to make use of the system even without the knowledge of the person using it. This way, a user will not be able to figure out whether the visa card generator is actually valid or not. Hence, people may end up spending more money on these fake generators than they actually have.
