  • The first rule to use an oscilloscope is: Don't use it unless you know the dangers of not knowing how to connect your probe grounds!
  • Please look at this video to get an idea of the problem.

  • Every time you will use an oscilloscope, check again the grounds!!!
  • Be very careful with laptops that don't have a third ground connector.
  • Also be very careful with powerstrips that have the ground “removed”.
