DC CH1 Failed 111
AC CH1 failed 210
AC CH2 failed 430
All other diagnostic tests pass, but there is no hint in the AWG2021 manual as to what these error codes mean and I don't have the AWG2020 manual.
Like the early 1st and 2nd generation TDS500/600 scopes these have terrible electrolytic SMD caps that simply must be replaced, boards washed etc. It does not matter how good these caps look to the eye. Untill that is accomplished, I don't think error codes are that relivent, as some or maybe all might go away. If it is the caps, it will only get worse if you keep turning it on with the old caps, and then there will be that little wiff of smoke. cap
The output boards were not badly effected by the caps and the A to D boards for each channel were totally uneffected by the cap issue. I doubt if the calibration failures reported now relate to the capacitor issue as I had thoughly checked and restored these boards.
Do the relays on the output board have the potential to cause calibration issues? I have come accross this in the TDS series causing those units to fail SPC? I am thinking that these relays will control gain and attenuation factors.
"If the calibration displays Fail as the the result, use the instructions in Section 6, Troubleshooting, to identify the faulty module. If an error code is displayed, contact your nearest representative."
I will assume this is what you found as well. I fear that once I'm finished washing and recapping that I'll see the same/similar.
Any "nearest representatives" that want to chime in?
