    hi all - i'm retired now & have just started to renew my interest in electronics again after 40 years.

    my wife bought me a dso (atten ads1062cal) but the user manual is written in japanese.

    i've been playing about with it but noticed that it kind of switches off after about 15 minutes or so with only the dispay, run/stop & ch1 buttons lit.

    i've looked at an english pdf manual & there is no mention of a standby mode or anything - would be grateful if someone could advise - thanks

    hi there
    welcome to the forums :)

    yeah, couldnt see anything obvious there myself
    maybe try and contact the manufacturer ?
    how do you "wake it up" pushing any button or a specific button ?

    I guess there is the possibility it has a fault


    cheers

    hi dave thanks for your reply - i played around & found a utilities menu that listed a screensaver function - it was set to 15 min (about the time it was switching off) - to confirm i set it to 1min & it switched off the screen accordingly.

    i was initially concerned in case faulty & as mentioned there is nothing in the manual(s) about this.
    generally i found the manual to be "a difficult to impossible read" probably due to the poor translation which is a shame as the scope seems quite good.

    i also bought a new instek f/gen & the user manual is great.

    cheers

    hey George

    yes quite a reasonable scope considering their budget price.
    I had one at the last place I worked, dont recall it going into a standby mode tho haha
