Installing the Agilent 8702D
Step 14. Copy the EEPROM Disk
Step 14. Copy the EEPROM Disk
The Agilent 8702D is shipped from the factory with an EEPROM backup disk
which is unique to each instrument. The backup disk contains a copy of correction constants which were stored in the instrument’s internal memory at
the factory. If your Agilent 8702D should ever be damaged, these correction
constants may need to be reinstalled from the disk. Use the following procedure to create a backup copy of the disk.
1 Insert a 3.5-inch disk into the Agilent 8702D’s disk drive.
2 Press PRESET so that the preset state is stored.
3 If the disk is not formatted, press SAVE/RECALL, FILE UTILITIES, FORMAT DISK.
• To format a LIF disk, select FORMAT:LIF (The supplied EEPROM backup disk
is LIF. The Agilent 8702D does not support LIF-HFS format.)
• To format a DOS disk, select FORMAT:DOS.
Press FORMAT INT DISK, and answer YES at the query.
4 Press SYSTEM, SERVICE MENU, SERVICE MODES, MORE, STORE EEPR ON, SAVE/RECALL,
SAVE RCL MENU, SELECT DISK, INTERNAL DISK, RETURN, SAVE STATE to store the
correction-constants data onto floppy disk.
A default file “FILE0” is created. The file name appears in the upper left-hand
corner of the display. The file type “ISTATE(E)” describes the file as an instrument-state with EEPROM backup.
5 Press FILE UTILITIES, RENAME FILE, ERASE TITLE. Use the RPG and the SELECT LETTER
softkey to rename the file “FILE0” to “N12345” where 12345 represents the last
5 digits of the instrument’s serial number. (The first character in the file name
must be a letter.) When finished, press DONE.
6 Label the disk with the serial number of the instrument and the words
“EEPROM Backup Disk”.
Whenever the Agilent 8702D is returned to Agilent Technologies for servicing
and/or calibration, the EEPROM backup disk should be returned with the
Agilent 8702D. This will significantly reduce the instrument repair time. The
EEPROM backup disk procedure is now complete.

Manual Performance Tests
This chapter contains procedures which test the electrical performance of the
Agilent 8702D. If you are using an Agilent 8702D Option 011, perform the
tests in Chapter 6, “Performance Tests – Option 011”. Before starting these
procedures, allow the instrument to warm up for one hour.
Each procedure has a “Performance Test Record” that is located at the end of
this chapter.
To obtain the same quality of performance testing that Agilent Technologies
has administered at the factory, you must perform:
• the system verification procedures in Chapter 2, “Automated Verification” or
Chapter 3, “Manual Verification”.
• all of the performance test procedures in this chapter.
This quality of performance testing guarantees that the analyzer is performing
within all of the published specifications. Agilent Technologies will issue a
Certificate of Calibration for your analyzer if two conditions are met.
1 Your analyzer passes all the performed tests.
2 The equipment and standards that you used to perform the tests are traceable
to a national standards institute.
NOTE
If you have a particular type of measurement application that does not use all of the analyzer’s measurement capabilities, you may ask your nearest Agilent Technologies Service
Office for a subset of specifications that you want verified. However, this does create a
potential for making incorrect measurements, by using a different application than what
was specified.

This chapter contains procedures which test the electrical performance of the
Agilent 8702D Option 011. If you are not using an Agilent 8702D Option 011,
refer to Chapter 4, “Performance Tests”. Before starting these procedures,
allow the instrument to warm up for one hour.
Each procedure has a “Performance Test Record” that is located at the end of
this chapter.
To obtain the same quality of performance testing that Agilent Technologies
has administered at the factory, you must perform:
• the system verification procedures in Chapter 5, “Automated Verification – Option 011”.
• all of the performance test procedures in this chapter.
This quality of performance testing guarantees that the analyzer is performing
within all of the published specifications. Agilent Technologies will issue a
Certificate of Calibration for your analyzer if two conditions are met.
1 Your analyzer passes all the performed tests.
2 The equipment and standards that you used to perform the tests are traceable
to a national standards institute.
NOTE
If you have a particular type of measurement application that does not use all of the analyzer’s measurement capabilities, you may ask your nearest Agilent Technologies Service
Office for a subset of specifications that you want verified. However, this does create a
potential for making incorrect measurements, by using a different application than what
was specified.

1 Check your test setup for damage or excessive wear of the input connectors.
2 Impedance mismatch may also be caused by the samplers, or the semi-rigid
cables connecting the A4/A5/A6 sampler mixer assemblies to the analyzer front
panel Type-N connectors. Check for damaged semi-rigid cables. If no damage
is apparent at the input connectors, try interchanging the sampler assemblies.
If the problem goes away, the sampler which you just swapped is defective. If
the problem still exists, suspect the path from the Type-N connector input to
the sampler assembly.

If You Encounter a Problem
If you have difficulty when installing or using the Agilent 8702D, check the following list of commonly encountered problems and troubleshooting procedures.
Contact the nearest Agilent Technologies office for service, if necessary. A list
of Agilent Technologies service offices is provided on page 7-8.
If the display does not light
❒ Check that the power cord is fully seated in both the main power receptacle
and the Agilent 8702D’s power module.
❒ Check that the AC line voltage selector switch is in the appropriate position
(230V/115V) for your available power supply.
❒ Check that the Agilent 8702D’s AC line fuse is not open.
Refer to Figure 7-1 to remove the fuse from the power module. Use an ohmmeter to check the fuse. The 3A, 250V fuse is Agilent Technologies part number
2110-0780.
7-2
If You Encounter a Problem
If the fan does not run
WARNING
The power cord is connected to internal capacitors that may remain
live for 10 seconds after you disconnect the cord from the power
supply.
Figure 7-1. Line Fuse Removal and Replacement
WARNING
For continued protection against fire hazard, replace the fuse with the
same type and rating.
If the fan does not run
1 Switch the LINE power switch to the off position.
2 Check that the fan blades are not jammed or obstructed.
If data entry keys don’t respond
❒ Check that the “entry off” function is not enabled.
7-3
If You Encounter a Problem
If there is no RF signal
The “entry off” is enabled after you press the ENTRY OFF key. To return to normal entry mode, press any function key that has a numeric parameter associated with it. For example, START.
❒ Check that none of the keys are mechanically stuck.
❒ Check that the selected key is designed to accept data.
For example, SCALE REF accepts data, but SYSTEM does not.
❒ Ensure that you are not attempting to enter a value that is greater than or less
than its limit.
❒ Check that the front panel “R” HP-IB STATUS light is not illuminated.
If the “R” HP-IB STATUS light is illuminated, a test sequence may be running, or a connected computer controller may be sending commands or instructions to, or receiving data from, the instrument. Press LOCAL if you want to
return to local control.
If there is no RF signal
❒ Check that the signal at the test ports is switched on.
a Press MENU, POWER, SOURCE PWR until ON appears on the SOURCE PWR softkey
label.
b Press MENU, POWER, POWER TRIP on OFF until OFF appears on the POWER TRIP
softkey label.
❒ If you are applying external modulation (AM) to the Agilent 8702D, check the
external modulating signal or external gate/trigger signals for problems.
CAUTION
If the error message: CAUTION: OVERLOAD ON INPUT X, POWER
REDUCED appears on the display, too much source power is being applied at
the input. In such a case, the input power will need to be reduced before the
source power will remain on.
❒ Look for phase-lock error messages and then contact your nearest Agilent
Technologies office for service. A list of Agilent Technologies service offices is
provided on page 7-8.

If You Encounter a Problem
Returning the Instrument for Service
Returning the Instrument for Service
The instructions in this section show you how to properly return the instrument for repair or calibration. Always call the Agilent Technologies Instrument
Support Center first to initiate service before returning your instrument to a
service office. This ensures that the repair (or calibration) can be properly
tracked and that your instrument will be returned to you as quickly as possible. Call this number regardless of where you are located. Refer to “Agilent
Technologies Service Offices” on page 7-8 for a list of service offices.
Agilent Technologies Instrument Support Center. . . . . . . . . . . (800) 403-0801
If the instrument is still under warranty or is covered by an Agilent Technologies maintenance contract, it will be repaired under the terms of the warranty
or contract (the warranty is at the front of this manual). If the instrument is
no longer under warranty or is not covered by an Agilent Technologies maintenance plan, Agilent Technologies will notify you of the cost of the repair after
examining the unit.
When an instrument is returned to a Agilent Technologies service office for
servicing, it must be adequately packaged and have a complete description of
the failure symptoms attached. When describing the failure, please be as specific as possible about the nature of the problem. Include copies of additional
failure information (such as the instrument failure settings, data related to
instrument failure, and error messages) along with the instrument being
returned.
Preparing the instrument for shipping
1 Write a complete description of the failure and attach it to the instrument.
Include any specific performance details related to the problem. The following
7-5
If You Encounter a Problem
Returning the Instrument for Service
information should be returned with the instrument.
• Type of service required.
• Date instrument was returned for repair.
• Description of the problem:
• Whether problem is constant or intermittent.
• Whether instrument is temperature-sensitive.
• Whether instrument is vibration-sensitive.
• Instrument settings required to reproduce the problem.
• Performance data.
• Company name and return address.
• Name and phone number of technical contact person.
• Model number of returned instrument.
• Full serial number of returned instrument.
• List of any accessories returned with instrument.
2 Cover all front or rear-panel connectors that were originally covered when you
first received the instrument.
CAUTION
Cover electrical connectors to protect sensitive components from electrostatic
damage. Cover optical connectors to protect them from damage due to physical
contact or dust.
CAUTION
Instrument damage can result from using packaging materials other than the
original materials. Never use styrene pellets as packaging material. They do not
adequately cushion the instrument or prevent it from shifting in the carton.
They may also cause instrument damage by generating static electricity.
3 Pack the instrument in the original shipping containers. Original materials are
available through any Agilent Technologies office. Or, use the following
guidelines:
• Wrap the instrument in antistatic plastic to reduce the possibility of damage
caused by electrostatic discharge.
• For instruments weighing less than 54 kg (120 lb), use a double-walled, corrugated cardboard carton of 159 kg (350 lb) test strength.
• The carton must be large enough to allow approximately 7 cm (3 inches) on
all sides of the instrument for packing material, and strong enough to accommodate the weight of the instrument.
• Surround the equipment with approximately 7 cm (3 inches) of packing material, to protect the instrument and prevent it from moving in the carton. If
packing foam is not available, the best alternative is S.D-240 Air Cap™ from
7-6
If You Encounter a Problem
Returning the Instrument for Service
Sealed Air Corporation (Commerce, California 90001). Air Cap looks like a
plastic sheet filled with air bubbles. Use the pink (antistatic) Air Cap™ to
reduce static electricity. Wrapping the instrument several times in this material will protect the instrument and prevent it from moving in the carton.
4 Seal the carton with strong nylon adhesive tape.
5 Mark the carton “FRAGILE, HANDLE WITH CARE”.
6 Retain copies of all shipping papers.
