Fluke 5500A Repair Source
« on: 04-15-2014 -- 22:16:59 »
Don't have time to work on unit.  Anyone recommend a good repair source for Fluke 5500A?  At first it got stuck in power up.  So I opened it and re-seated all the boards.  Now it goes through power up (I got excited), but it has some problems.  It doesn't recognize the scope option card installed, and a series of A/D failures during self-diagnostic.  I checked all the internal fuses  and they are all good.  Not sure how worth it this instrument is, but wondering if anyone can recommend good priced, well skilled source for repairs.

If it were my calibrator the only place I would send it for repair is Fluke.

Only reason is I'm not sure if Fluke is still supporting the 5500A.  I found a spare that is operational (doesn't fail any diagnostic tests).  So may be able to do some board swapping.  If needed, I may check Techmaster out.  I havbe heard of them.
