I bought a 502 and a 502A for a total of $5 last year at auction. I've not
yet powered them up, as they need to be restored, but I have located a
source for service manuals. If you want a copy of the manual, and don't
mind waiting awhile, I'm going to be ordering them along with quite a few
other Tek manuals. Anyone else out there a Tektronix fan/collector?

Nice...I believe you can get manuals for these too, but they have to be
obtained from a 3rd party, since Heath no longer offers them.

I'm viewing this text on one of those right now. It does currently need
some caps replaced, but works good after it warms up ;)

The second monitor probably blew one of the transistors in the switching
supply. I've seen quite a few of the old 2A monitors do that. It's often
caused by (you guessed it) bad caps.

Do keyboards and mice for the old 4D systems turn up very often? I've been
needing to track some down, but I haven't bothered since I don't have room
to set the systems up for normal use yet. I'll probably end up using a
dumb terminal more often than the console anyway.
