Troubleshooting
The commonly encountered failures and their solutions are listed below. When you
encounter those failures, please solve them following the corresponding steps. If the
problem remains still, please contact
and provide your device information
(acquisition method: Utility
System System Info).
1.
The screen is still dark (no display) after power on:
(1) Check whether the power switch is turned on.
(2) Check whether the power is correctly connected.
(3) Check whether the fuse is burned out. If the fuse needs to be changed,
please use the specified fuse.
(4) Restart the instrument after finishing the above inspections.
(5) If it still does not work correctly, please contact
2.
The signal is sampled but no waveform of the signal is displayed:
(1) Check whether the probe is correctly connected to the item under tested.
(2) Check whether there are signals generated from the item under test (you
can connect the probe compensation signal to the problematic channel to
determine which has problem, the channel or the item under test).
(3) Resample the signal.
3.
The voltage amplitude measured is greater or lower than the actual
value (note that this failure usually only occurs when probe is used):
Check whether the attenuation ratio of the channel complies with the
attenuation ratio of the probe.
4.
There is waveform display but not stable:
(1) Check the trigger signal source: press MENU of the TRIGGER Control Area
of the front panel, then press Source to confirm whether the setting
complies with the signal channel actually used.
(2) Check the trigger type: general signals should use “Edge” trigger and video
signal should use “Video” trigger. Only when the proper trigger type is used,
can the waveform be displayed stably.
(3) Check the trigger level: adjust the trigger level to the middle of the signal.
(4) Change the trigger holdoff setting.
26
MSO2000A/DS2000A Quick Guide
5.
No display after pressing RUN/STOP:
Check the TRIGGER Control Area of the front panel to confirm whether the
trigger mode is “Normal” or “Single” and whether the trigger level exceeds the
waveform range. If yes, set the trigger level to the middle or press the MODE to
set the trigger mode to “Auto”.
Note: Using AUTO could automatically finish the above setting.
6.
The display of waveform is ladder-like:
(1) The horizontal time base might be too low. Increase the horizontal time
base to increase the horizontal resolution and improve the display.
(2) If the display Type is “Vectors”, the lines between the sample points may
cause ladder-like display. Press Display
Type , set the display type to
“Dots” to solve the problem.
7.
Fail to connect PC or PictBridge through USB:
(1) Press Utility
IO Setting
USB Device to check whether the setting
matches the device currently connected.
(2) Check whether the USB cable is correctly connected to the instrument and
PC.
(3) Check whether the USB cable is in good condition. If needed, restart the
oscilloscope.
8.
The USB storage device cannot be recognized:
(1) Check whether the USB storage device can work normally.
(2) Check whether the USB storage device being used is flash type. This
oscilloscope does not support hardware type USB storage device.
(3) Check whether the capacity of the USB storage device is too large. It is
recommended that the capacity of the USB storage device being used with
this oscilloscope is no larger than 8 GBytes.
(4) Restart the instrument and then insert the USB storage device to check it.
