8590B tracking problem.

Question asked by Drforbin on Jul 14, 2015
Hi all. I just rescued a 8590b from the trash. It had a bad RES BW filter on A13 100Khz which I repaired.
But it seems the tracking feature is operating in correctly, or maybe not!
That's what I'm here to ask. When I place a marker near a signal and hit signal track it will track but it finds the largest signal it can rather than tracking the signal the marker is on.
This is contrary to the behavior which is expected according to the manual. This function seems to be completely firmware (digital software) derived. So my question is,
is this the proper behavior, and if not what should I look for in the way of faults?


Thank you.
