2204 stopped working

Post by fritsphilips » Fri Feb 19, 2016 8:16 pm

Hi All,

My first post here, and unfortunately with some problems.

My 2204 started to behave strange, slow reaction and some strange spikes in the negative range of about .5 till 1v with nothing connected. This happened on a mac with 10.9
Connected the 2204 to a pc but the problems kept on going.
Back to the mac again.
Trying to debug this, I connected the gen out via bnc to channel A and the scope got hot, disconnected the scope.

All I get now is a flat line from either chan A or chan B, the signal generator still works (tested it with my trusty fluke scopemeter)

Any ideas on how this happened?

Please contact support@picotech.com
I have not heard of a scope getting hot like that during normal operation, so there may be a fault with it.
