    go to tek.com and download the service manual. There MAY be a clue in
    there.
    I've fixed two TDS540s with numerous self test failures by replacing
    all the electrolytic caps on all the boards. Yes, ALL 150 or so of
    them...then washing the boards several times with a toothbrush and solvent.
