I would stay away from the Tek 2400 series if at all possible. That
generation of Tek 'scopes use custom Integrated circuits that are no longer
produced and are virtually unobtainable. There are a dearth of replacement
parts. You'll find you have to canibalize other 2400 series 'scopes to
keep yours going. Particulary I would avoid any 2400 series scope that has
problems. Unless you need parts out of it, of course. Or, of course, if
you're a Tek Scope collector.

I am old fashioned and wouldn't part with my Tek 465. The 7000 series
mainframe 'scopes are incredibly inexpensive on the used market these days
as well. I have one I may list on eBay soon.
