As it has been pointed out before, the failure of a tube may be from any 
number of issues, including the failure of the ionizer of the 
masspectrometer for instance. Restoring a tube may require cleaning or 
replacement several parts. Another failure may be the ion-pump.

Regardless it may take some effort to clean things up.

It's in the arcives if you search for it.
