It only powers on for about a sec. then it turns off. If you attempt to turn it back on after it turns off, it will not turn on. Its like it has a self reseting circuit breaker or somethhing.

So I acquired these two scopes when my scholl was throwing out a bunch of equipment. I got a ton of plugins for them too. I have one working 7854 but the other one and the 7633 both will not turn on at all. They immediately blow their fuse. I am assuming it is most likely an issue with the power supply, and probably the capacitors.

Sure it is. I have no idea what could the reason be. I have a chance to put a test structure on a test chip, so I have to think what structure is appropriate.
Yes, if latch-up occurs it will short the supply to common. So the high power consumption is likely due to a different problem. Hard to say what that could be.

this is a common error which occurs due to the programming voltage being too low. check your power source for ripples. it might have too many ripples and that could be the most likely cause of this problem. i would suggest you to power the programmer from two 9V batteries. that way you wont have any problems with ripple.
