    Hi,

    One of my probes has developed an intermittent connection at the 'scope end.
    The plastic BNC lock has always wobbled about a bit, but now the metal BNC
    barrel inside has come loose. Is there any way to open these things up? Is
    there a screw underneath the ident label?

    TIA
    Andrew.

    Fixed it. I prised the U-shaped cover off the compensation box, but only
    after unscrewing the cable out of the back first (bad idea) breaking the
    extremely fine inner conductor. But it was only after doing that, thinking
    the thing was written-off, that I had the courage to start levering and
    prising.
