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.
