    I picked up a Philips PM3262 Oscope at my town's recycling center. it
    looks like it has been well used.

    I plugged it in and turned it on. It worked normally for about 2 minutes
    and then shut down. The ckt breaker on it did not pop. The "ON" light
    was off. After I let it sit for a while, this repeated.

    I don't have schematics and when I took the covers off I did not see
    anything obviously out of kilter.

    Has anyone had this problem and fixed it easily? If so, could you post
    the fix?

    Thanks in advance.

    Had a similar problem with a Philips PM scope.
    Turned out to be the high voltage transformer shorted a turn
    after it warmed up. I rewound the thing...yeah, that was an ordeal.
    Worked for a few days and shorted out again.

    Had one of these as a bench 'scope back in the day. Most of the internal
    voltages come from a switch mode power supply which will fail as you
    describe at the slightest provocation. Tough to fix without circuit
    diagrams and you will need a 'scope that works.....

    From the responses I've gotten, it's best for me to take it back ;-)
