Hi Emanuxelz and welcome to the Users Forum.
I would check the most obvious possibilities such as open or shorted solder joints first (you probably already have...). Try running the internal Diags. This may provide a clue where the issue may be.
The schematic for  the main PCB is available here:

I had a broken 2700 (cap discharge) that was many years in the storage room I tried to repair it using another working 2700 as model. I removed some ICs from the good board to make some measurements using a 3rd tracker(2800s) and put it back together but it doesn't work anymore. It shows a circle like it was measuring a capacitor even without the cables conected. When I short the leads it shows a vertical line so it is kinda working. I tried to diagnose it but the offset doesnt avail.

The ICs that I removed or swapped are AR3,4,7,9,12 and U48

The bad board was pretty much blown by the cap discharge. AR3 and U48 were completely explosed, the caps and the resistors  r304 and r63 were damaged by it.
I removed r64 and found a short circuit going to U11 (74hc4051) I swapped it for another one from the same board and the short is gone.  Q1, q2, q12 and q13 showed different signatures compared to the good (now bad too) board but I dint replace them yet.

I think i maybe swapped ar12 from the bad board to the good board and it made kill another IC. Maybe this high speed buffer IC is too sensitive to temperature, I dont know...

Can I have some help to repair at least the good board again. My boss is gonna kill me if this tracker isn't repaires by the end of the week.

thank you very much friends for the support they always give me, I just want to make the 5100DS functional and I think that the workstation 3 is the ideal one.

Greetings and many thanks James and Curtis.

Hello David
I use Workstation 3 with Windows XP Pro S/P 3 all the time with my ProTrack Scanner so might be able to help with problems there.
But not familiar with the Prober, so can't really help with that.
I did try a sample version of Workstation 4 Curtis emailed me, but with lack of time as a self employed engineer, and probably using Workstation 3 & earlier versions for many years, and Polar T6000 fault locator software, I  found Workstation 4 so different that I think it needed a few clear weeks of work to get to grips with it. So gave up!
Plus Workstation 4 costs a hell of a lot more than version 3.

Okay, I will post this link one last time:

https://www.huntron.com/sales-support/download/huntronworkstation3.5.4.zip

It is Important that you extract this ZIP file to a SIMPLE folder name and path (such as c:\huntron) before you install. The unzip password is 354XPSP2 . This is 14 year old software so support will be limited.
Thanks.

Hello friends, I need the workstation 3 to configure my gpib to work with windos xp because in windows 98 this computer does not work with version 2.2 and the GPIB that I have works from windows 2000 onwards, and does not read the instrument.

Thank you.

As Curtis says they are still available.
Just tap in the part number Toshiba E8384B31A on Google.

If anyone had planned on purchasing a CRT for an old Tracker or just a spare, I am sad to say they are all gone. If you are in desperate need, I have seen a few on EBay.
