HP no longer had the manual in their archives so they couldn't provide it.

Release of copyright
Tektronix Policy on Copying of Out-of-date Materials
To put this more back on the original subject, Manuals Plus also had
explicit permission from both Tektronix and HP/Agilent/Keysight to
actually duplicate/reprint their manuals. This is why some manuals were so
expensive...they were copied as needed to fill an order, and according to
Becky, it was a very labor intensive process. Jason will know exactly what
I'm talking about here too, as he got their Master (Reprint) manuals.
