Hickok 6000A Tube Tester

Posted by Sam Martin on 04/27/2009 14:57

::Hi Sam: I am a retired EE university professor and am sorry you got "snake bit" by some rogue. I repair vintage electronics every day all day when I am not consulting. I am in south Georgia and if you will send me your Hickok I will troubleshoot it and phone you as to the problem and return it to you at absolutely no charge should you desire not to repair it. I have been in business since l954.

::::::I have a Hickok 6000A tube tester. It does not work--at all. The unit exhibits no life. I looked in the manual troubleshooting section. Most likely, the problem is either a bad line cord, a bad rectifier tube (or tubes),
::::::or a transformer short. I am a novice. I can't even figure out how to get inside the tester without taking out about twenty screws. I am extremely
::::::flustered, to say the least.

::::::Can you help me? Telling me who can "fix" the tester would be OK.

::::::If you have a manual for your tube tester check page 11 for a trouble shooting chart. If you don't have one go to ( bama.edebris.com) and download one.If you want to spend some bucks (alltubetesters.com)is a great site for info as well as parts and service.I bought a new panel meter for my Hickok 600A there.I fixed my own and it still cost me $350.It took me a week to learn it and get use to the calibration procedures but the result was worth it.Good Luck with it!

:::Sorry about the mixed up reply(s)--I've never used this site before.
:::Thanks for your response.


Hi, Dr. T. I, too, am a Doctor (economics): I taught at the college-level, mostly part time, for 15 years. I need your phone number--I'll give you a call.
Thanks---
