But it may help in case of finding an User who would be willing to make a clone of his own HDD Therefore thanks for your comment. IT could help later. TSei
Does Agilent sell replacement parts and software? Here ist just a drawing of the mechanical replacement on pg. 136: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/2061617/Agilent-Technologies-54830-Series.html?page=136#manual looks like a usual notebook harddisk. Maybe the "Test Equipment Anonymous (TEA) group therapy" can help you: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/test-equipment-anonymous-(tea)-group-therapy-thread/ https://support.keysight.com/KeysightdCX/s/service-catalogue-detail?language=en_US&c__id=54832D "Product Support Status: Extended Service Period: calibration available and repair subject to parts availability Begin Extended Service Period date: 1.12.2011" https://www.rftesolutions.com/pdf/oscilloscopes/54832D--Data_Sheet.pdf Windows XP Pro Open System Want to run Windows applica- tions inside your Infiniium scope?

Hey friends, @von Christoph db1uq K. (christoph_kessler)11.02.2024 19:23: Thanks for your information. I will follow the links and try to see what I can achieve. You are right with your assumtion. The HDD looks like a typical HHD with parallel port connector, like the old laptop HDD's had had before they switched to SATA. That's the reason why I guess I will find a propper HDD more easy than the software. Thanks for your answer. @von Alexander (alecxs)11.02.2024 20:15: Death means death, Supply voltage is available, the spindle motor dosen't turn. Therefore I hope I will find a source for a firmware recovery or a full firmware backup. best regards TSei
Trying to ping Keysight support? When the company label was still "Agilent", they used to have many of the software distributions online. E.g. the entire Windows app for 16900 logic analyzers was available online, and could be run on arbitrary (now old) Windows setups, and the setup CD-ROM for 16700 LAs (including the required HP-UX OS) was also online. When they switched to Keysight, I didn't see these online resources anymore, but it's quite possible their support folks could still somehow access it internally.
Hello Jörg W. schrieb: > Trying to ping Keysight support? Hello Jörg, I didn't try to get in contact with Keysight. I saw in another threat that someone said that Keysight would give definitive no support for systems, marked as obsolete. But I can try it, I just can get a refusal in worst Case. Do you have a poc beside the official customer address? Best regards TSei
Tom schrieb: > Do you have a poc beside the official customer address? Alas not. My last contact with them dates back some years ago, at a previous employer. Btw., I have to correct myself: the 16700 CD-ROM was not online, but they sent it to me free of charge, as a physical CD-ROM.
