SELF DIAGNOSIS FUNCTION
If an error occurs, the Smart Core Red LED will automatically begin to flash.
The number of times the LED flashes translates to a probable source of the problem.
A definition of the Smart Core Red LED flash indicators is listed in the instruction manual for the user’s knowledge and reference.
If an error symptom cannot be reproduced, the remote commander can be used to review the failure occurrence data stored in memory to reveal past problems and how often these problems occur.
DIAGNOSTIC TEST INDICATORS
When an error occurs, the Smart Core Red LED will flash a set number of times to indicate the possible cause of the problem.
If there is more than one error, the LED will identify the first of the problem areas.
Result for all of the following diagnostic items are displayed on screen.
If the screen displays a “0”, no error has occurred .B
