919 moisture tester repair.
Has anyone fiddled with their 919 meters?
Ours was bought new by my grandparents, was updated later to the larger diameter cell. And that was probably 30 years ago, never been in for any work since...
Yesterday we turned it on and the needle isn't moving like normal, to calibrate or even when testing the needle wont go below half scale ..
And is not as touchy as usual.
I opened it up and it still is equipped with vacuum tubes.
They seem very simple internally and just wondered if anyone know anything technical about them.
I imagine it could be something as simple as a popped resistor or capacitor??
Maybe even a tube?
I found how to test a tube online, havnt done it yet... [trying to combine peas right now]
But I'll dive into it on a rain day.
Keep calm and combine on....
