The following are some problems that may be encountered during the installation and
operation of your C-more® Micro-Graphic panel. We have made some suggestions on
what to check in order to correct the problem.
C-more Micro-Graphic Panel does not Power up
1. Powered from 5 VDC:
a. If the panel’s display is blank, not responding, and the panel is powered from the PC via
the USB programming cable, power the panel from a 12-24 VDC power source.
2. Powered from 12-24 VDC:
a. If the panel’s display is blank, not responding, and the panel is powered from a 12-24
VDC power source, check the incoming DC voltage level to the adapter with a voltmeter.
The DC voltage level to the adapter should be in the range of 10.2-26.4 VDC.
b. If the incoming DC voltage is zero, check any fusing that may be in the circuit. If the
fuse is open, determine cause and replace.
Display is Blank
1. If the panel’s display is blank, but the panel has power, check the TxD and RxD indicators
on the back side of the panel while the panel is communicating with the PLC. The LED
indicators should be on or flashing at a fast rate. Indicator activity shows that the panel is
communicating with the PLC.
2. If there is communication activity, but the display is still blank, there is the possibility the
program in the PLC is controlling the display. press the F1 and F5 keys simultaneously for 3
seconds. The panel will change to the System Setup Screen menu even if the screen is being
forced to display a blank screen by the PLC program.
3. If the setup screen displays, check the PLC program. The screen will be in the off state if a 0
has been placed in the current screen tag.

Chapter 8: Troubleshooting
No Communications between Panel and PLC
The C-more Micro-Graphic panel communicates with a designated PLC or controlling device
through the panel’s RS-232 / RS-485 / RS-422 communications port (Port2).
1. Check the Txd and Rxd status indicators of Port2. The indicator LED’s should be on or
flashing at a fast rate. If there is activity on the LED indicators, then the panel and PLC are
communicating.
NOTE: For communications to be present between the panel and PLC, the panel must contain a project
requesting data from the PLC.

The C-more Micro-Graphic panel includes built-in PLC communication protocol diagnostics
that monitor the exchange of data between the panel and the PLC. The diagnostics look for the
proper exchange of data, correct handshaking signals, addressing errors, incorrect data bytes,
wrong packet format, etc. The diagnostics also monitor and display any of the errors that the
designated PLC generates if there is a problem with the PLC’s communications. The PLC
generated errors are interpreted by the C-more Micro-Graphic programming software and are
displayed across the top of the panel’s display embedded as a hexadecimal value in error code
P499.
If a C-more Micro-Graphic communication error does occur, the error message will be displayed
in the upper left of the panel’s display screen along with the error code number. The error code
with error message will blink off and on.
NOTE: See Appendix A: Panel & PLC Error Code Tables for a complete list of all error codes.

C-more Micro-Graphic Panel Runtime Errors
The C-more Micro-Graphic panel includes built-in diagnostics that check for proper operation
of the panel when it is running a project that has been transferred to its memory. Faults detected
while the panel is running will produce a “Runtime” error. These errors are displayed in a
popup window in the center of the panel’s display.
Troubleshooting a Panel Runtime Error:
Follow these steps to troubleshoot a panel runtime error.
1. Check the panel cable connections.
2. Cycle power at the panel.
3. Resend the project.
4. If the error still occurs, reset the panel back to factory default. Refer to Chapter 5 for details.
NOTE: User memory is cleared when factory defaults are reset. Use the C-more Micro-Graphic
programming software to read the program from the panel and save a backup copy.

Electrical Noise Problems
Most noise problems result from improper grounding of the system. A good earth ground can
be the single most effective way to correct noise problems. If a ground is not available, install a
ground rod as close to the system as possible. Ensure all ground wires are single point grounds
and are not daisy chained from one device to another. Ground metal enclosures around the
system. A loose wire can act as a large antenna, introducing noise into the system. Therefore,
tighten all connections in your system. Loose ground wires are more susceptible to noise than
the other wires in your system. Review Chapter 4: Installation & Wiring if you have questions
regarding how to ground the touch panel.
Electrical noise can enter the system through the power source for the touch panel. Installing a
properly wired isolation transformer (neutral grounded) for all AC sources can help the
problem, but only if wired correctly. DC sources should be well-grounded good quality
supplies.
Never run communication cables or low-voltage power wiring close to high voltage wiring or
pulse generating wiring that controls such devices as solenoids, servos, VFDs, etc.
Selecting a lower communication rate in Panel Manager may help the panel better handle
noise.
