Adjusting and calibrating Hameg HM-605 channel gain

Yesterday I have noticed that voltage or gain of channel 1 in my scope is a little bit off ( noticed that by analyzing one circuit on same output with dual signal ). I have Hameg HM-605 service manual (you can download it at the bottom) and I found there instruction of adjusting channel gain. Basically you just provide square wave signal ( I used scopes calibration output ) and adjust corresponding pot. Its an easy fix as you can see in a video below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWKAdgnhqh8 Download HAMEG HM-605 oscilloscope…

Getting cheap oscilloscope on ebay

As casual electronics tinkerer I have always wanted to add an oscilloscope to my tools collection but never did so. There are many reasons why, for example, oscilloscopes are expensive and you don't want to spend a huge amounts of money on thing that will be used just occasionally and basically is a "toy", or, for example,  I have never owned one and there are gazillions of them and I was not sure which one or with what specs should I get. You can have modern digital ones, older analog,…

Repairing HAMEG HM-605 oscilloscope trigger problem

Bought used HAMEG HM605 oscilloscope with trigger problem. Tested it with sine wave and yes, cannot trigger it nor with automatic trigger neither manually. Decided to resolder all contacts near the trigger switch. Luckily it was easy accessible, just had to remove cover. After resolder next test revealed that sometimes trigger works, and sometimes not. Just a slight touch (no pressing) on external trigger button seems to be cause. So I resoldered all the contacts of ext trigger switch and some around and triggering started working as intended. Fixed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gkyj85Is7uw
