Safety Requirement
General Safety Summary
Please review the following safety precautions carefully before putting the
instrument into operation so as to avoid any personal injuries or damages to the
instrument and any product connected to it. To prevent potential hazards, please use
the instrument only specified by this manual.
Use Proper Power Cord.
Only the power cord designed for the instrument and authorized for use within the
local country could be used.
Ground The Instrument.
The instrument is grounded through the Protective Earth lead of the power cord. To
avoid electric shock, it is essential to connect the earth terminal of power cord to the
Protective Earth terminal before any inputs or outputs.
Connect the Probe Correctly.
If a probe is used, do not connect the ground lead to high voltage since it has the
isobaric electric potential as ground.
Observe All Terminal Ratings.
To avoid fire or shock hazard, observe all ratings and markers on the instrument and
check your manual for more information about ratings before connecting.
Use Proper Overvoltage Protection.
Make sure that no overvoltage (such as that caused by a thunderstorm) can reach
the product, or else the operator might expose to danger of electrical shock.
Do Not Operate Without Covers.
Do not operate the instrument with covers or panels removed.
Do Not Insert Anything into the Holes of Fan.
Do not insert anything into the holes of the fan to avoid damaging the instrument.

Use Proper Fuse.
Please use the specified fuse.
Avoid Circuit or Wire Exposure.
Do not touch exposed junctions and components when the unit is powered.
Do Not Operate With Suspected Failures.
If you suspect damage occurs to the instrument, have it inspected by qualified
service personnel before further operations. Any maintenance, adjustment or
replacement especially to circuits or accessories must be performed by RIGOL
authorized personnel.
Keep Well Ventilation.
Inadequate ventilation may cause increasing of temperature or damages to the
device. So please keep well ventilated and inspect the intake and fan regularly.
Do Not Operate in Wet Conditions.
In order to avoid short circuiting to the interior of the device or electric shock, please
do not operate in a humid environment.
Do Not Operate in an Explosive Atmosphere.
In order to avoid damages to the device or personal injuries, it is important to
operate the device away from an explosive atmosphere.
Keep Product Surfaces Clean and Dry.
To avoid the influence of dust and/or moisture in air, please keep the surface of
device clean and dry.
Electrostatic Prevention.
Operate in an electrostatic discharge protective area environment to avoid damages
induced by static discharges. Always ground both the internal and external
conductors of the cable to release static before connecting.
Proper Use of Battery.
If a battery is supplied, it must not be exposed to high temperature or in contact with
fire. Keep it out of the reach of children. Improper change of battery (note: lithium
battery) may cause explosion. Use RIGOL specified battery only.

System
Check if the power is correctly connected.
Check if the power switch is really on.
Restart the instrument after finishing the above inspections.
If it does not work correctly, contact RIGOL for our service.
The settings are correct but no waveform is generated
(1) Check if the BNC cable is correctly connected to the channel output
terminal ([Output1] or [Output2]).
(2) Check if the BNC cable can work correctly.
(3) Check the Output1 or Output2 button, if it is turned on.
(4) Set PowerOn as “Last” and then restart the instrument after finishing the
above inspections.
(5) If it does not work correctly, contact RIGOL for our service.
3.
The USB storage device cannot be recognized:
