The Tracker is great but needs experience and skill to use. One of the best investments you can make is an in-circuit capacitor ESR (equivilent series resistance) meter. Many faults on modern equipment are due to faulty elecrolytic capacitors. in many instances these will test OK for capacitance value but have a high impedance. An ESR mater will tell you the impedance, not the capacitance of the capacitor. This is very important in high speed circuits and switch mode power supplies.

I have consistently had success repairing laboratory instruments(my
small business) when I have a schematic and I have consistently failed
without one, lots of opportunities are slipping threw my fingers.
I want to invest in tools that will help me troubleshoot without a
schematic. I was thinking about getting a Huntron tracker. Has anyone
had any experience with one? Could you feedback?
Are there other tools that have helped you fix circuit boards without a
