Zeiss Orion 80 repair

Postby Sturm44 » Thu Aug 24, 2017 1:10 pm

Hey all, I have a zeiss orion 80 that is having some issues. When powering up the unit, everything seems to work as it should. Clear image, bright aiming dots, etc. However after a couple of seconds, the image slowly fades to black. Switching the unit on and off has no immediate effect, however if you let it sit for several hours, it will once again temporarily work. So my questions are:

Because I temporarily get a clear image, are my tubes ok?
I'm guessing it's the power supply inside the main tube housing(that contains the 1121 and 1134 tubes) has gone bad. Is there anyone that repairs these older tubes, or does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks!
