Minimum Level Adjustment
To set the minimum amplifier output level, insert the 1/8-inch flat blade screwdriver into the User
Adjustment Control and set it fully counterclockwise. Listen for a single beep from the speaker
indicating the speaker amplifier is in the Minimum Level Adjustment mode. A continuous tone should be
heard after the beep tone. (See note below).
This test tone is used as a reference to adjust the speaker amplifier output level to the desired volume.
Turn the adjustment pot clockwise for the desired output. The test tone automatically shuts off 5 seconds
after the last adjustment. The factory default setting for minimum level is 4.0 watts nominal.
NOTE: If the page line is in use immediately after the beep tone, the page signal should be used to make
the minimum level adjustment. If the page line is inactive following the beep tone, a continuous tone is
activated to make the minimum level adjustment. After the tone is activated, all page line activity is
ignored until completion of the adjustment.
Offset Level Adjustment
The Offset Level allows the output of the SmartVolume™ speaker amplifier to maintain a set difference
or “offset” between the ambient noise level and the speaker output level. Turn the User Adjustment
Control fully clockwise and listen for the two beep tones indicating that the station is in the Offset
Adjustment mode. A continuous tone should be heard from the station speaker. Turn the adjustment pot
counterclockwise to the desired output level.
NOTE: If the page line is in use immediately after the two beep tones are heard, the page signal should be
used to make the offset level adjustment. If the page line is inactive immediately following the beep
tones, a continuous tone is activated to make the minimum level adjustment. After the tone is activated,
all page line activity is ignored until completion of the adjustment
VLC Level Adjustment
When activated, the VLC overrides the normal volume control setting allowing the amplifier level to
change to a preset level during an emergency page. The factory default setting for the VLC Level is 10%
of maximum power (nominally 1.2 watts).
NOTE: The system must be equipped with a SmartSeries® MCU (Master Control Unit) to activate the
VLC function.
To adjust the VLC Level:
1. Force the station into the VLC mode by having someone execute a page from a station programmed
by the MCU to activate the VLC function.
2. During the page, turn the User Adjustment Control fully counterclockwise, and listen for two beep
tones through the page speaker indicating the VLC Adjustment mode has been activated.
3. After the two beep tones, turn the User Adjustment Control to the desired speaker level using the live
paging signal to adjust the level. The station automatically exits the VLC Adjustment mode and
reverts to normal operation 5 seconds after the last pot adjustment.

Troubleshooting
The following table lists some hints to aid technicians in troubleshooting.
Problem
Any problem with
station performance
Possible Solution
Remove the assembly from the enclosure and examine it carefully for obvious
faults such as unconnected plugs, loose connections where the wires connect
to the FSK/P PCBA, and so on. Determine whether the fault is in the
assembly, or in the system, by plugging in a known good spare assembly (set
to the same address as the assembly removed). If the fault is in the assembly,
remove it for repair.
NOTE: When replacing the assembly, perform the following steps:
1. Set the address on the new assembly to 0, 3.
2. Plug the assembly into the enclosure.
3. After about 10 seconds, remove the assembly. The station is now set up
to request a download of configuration variables from the MCU.
4. Set the unit to the correct address. Set the address to 0, 4 for standard
dumb station operation or consult the ADVANCE system manual for
address assignment information.
5. Plug the assembly back into the enclosure. The station initiates a
configuration download request (ADVANCE systems only). The time
required to complete the download depends upon system configuration
and system activity, but several seconds is typical.
Speaker volume needs
adjustment
Use the USER ADJ control to adjust the Minimum Level, Offset Level, or
VLC Level (as appropriate). Refer to the “Adjustments” section on page 6.

How to Diagnose Assembly Faults
When the assembly is in an ADVANCE system that includes a vacuum fluorescent display (VFD), faults
may be automatically detected, transmitted to the MCU in data messages, and displayed or printed. Fault
messages and possible solutions for their causes are described in the table below.
Fault Message

xd times
(Where x is the
decimal number of
times the watchdog
timer has reset the
processor.)
Supervised Audio
Path
Page Amp
Supervised Audio
Path
Speaker Voice Coil
Cause and Effect
Possible Solution
Cause—The watchdog timer has forced the
processor to reset. This occurs when the reset
pins (J2) on the FSK/P PCBA are temporarily
shorted or when the watchdog timer does not
receive regular status pulses from U4 on the
FSK/P PCBA.
Effect—The processor maintains a count of the
number of resets. If the station is powered
down, the count restarts at zero. The station
still amplifies incoming pages. For the fourth
and subsequent resets, the count is zero.

Verify that the reset
pins 2 and 3 (J2) on the
FSK/P PCBA are not
shorted.

Replace the FSK/P
PCBA.
Cause—The station failed its internal speaker
amplifier health check.
Effect—The station disables the speaker
amplifier health-check function after the first
failure.

Replace the Speaker
Amp/Power Supply
PCBA.

Replace FSK/P PCBA

Verify that the speaker
wire is connected and
intact.
Verify that the voice
coil is connected and
intact.
Replace the Speaker
Amp/Power Supply
PCBA.
Cause—The station is detecting no ambient
noise at the speaker or is detecting an ambient
noise lower than the configured failure
threshold. This may occur if there is a fault in
the speaker wire or a fault at the voice coil.
This also may occur if the ambient noise at the
speaker is too low, as is the case in a quiet
room.
Effect—The station continues measuring
speaker ambient noise. When acceptable noise
levels are subsequently measured, a restore
message is sent to the MCU.

Fault Message
Polled device
Polled End-of-line
device
Cause and Effect
Possible Solution

Verify that the page line
is connected and intact.

Verify that the station is
installed correctly.

Replace the FSK/P
PCBA.
Cause—This message is the same as the
“Polled device” fault, except that the affected
station has been defined as an end-of-line
station in the MCU configuration.

Verify that the page line
is connected and intact.

Verify that the station is
installed correctly.
Effect—When this fault occurs, the red EOL
FLT LED on the PPI bezel lights. When
communication is resumed, the LED
extinguishes and a restore message is sent to the
MCU.

Replace the station
assembly.
Cause—This message is output by the MCU
when it loses communication with the station.
This may occur if there is a fault in the page
line, if the station is powered-down, or if there
is some fatal malfunction within the station.
Effect—The MCU continues to attempt
communication with the station. When
communication is resumed, a restore message is
sent to the MCU.
