Home Up DX-100 SB-610 SB-620



This HEATHKIT SB-620 SCANALYZER  is in for K3MJW pre-sales check out.  It also is in excellent condition and works.  Initially there was no vertical deflection.  That was traced to a nonfunctional DC Filament rectifying bridge.  Four new 1N4007 diodes later and it sprang to life.  All Electrolytic caps tested low ESR and all tubes tested good on a Heathkit emissions tester.  There were two control shafts that were pulled out.  The control pots were removed and repaired. 

I cleaned the cabinet and front Bezel of some normal dirt.  I hooked it up to a signal generator to test basic functionality.  See the patterns below.

It looks like the plastic shrunk.  5 min epoxy used for the repair.
