INTRODUCTION
HP 5890 SERIES II GAS CHROMATOGRAPH
This section is intended to help the technician isolate problems to a specific component or components. The HP 5890 Series II may be found in many different configurations, with varying component
options. This complicates the process of providing detailed troubleshooting procedures for even general problems. But, by using the general troubleshooting techniques presented here, along with the functional diagrams found at the end of this section, successful results should be achieved.
There are five inlet options and six detector options which may be encountered when servicing an HP
5890 Series II Gas Chromatograph, as well as a wide variety of flow and pressure control components.
All of these common inlet and detector components are represented by the functional diagrams at the
end of this section. When troubleshooting inlets, detectors, and/or the flow/pressure systems, fold out
the page corresponding to the employed detector, while leaving the book open to the page corresponding to the employed inlet. Maintenance procedures for most of the components are given in the
following sections. Procedures are supplied to remove, replace, and/or clean various subassemblies,
based on the current maintenance philosophy, i. e., to allow replacement of the lowest level components applicable for a particular item.
Specific part numbers are not given in this portion of the service manual. For all replacement part numbers, refer to the IPB portion of this document.
This document is not meant to provide instruction for first time installation of any of the options discussed. The add- on sheets, which accompany the various options, exist for just this purpose, and
should be referenced when performing a first time installation.

Electronic Troubleshooting
INTRODUCTION
This section is intended to aid the operator and service engineer in the troubleshooting process, i.e., of
going from symptom to cause. It has been subdivided into four subsections by type of symptom.
Part A covers the most obvious indications of problems. The instrument apparently (generally when
first turned on) doesn’
t work at all. (NON- FUNCTIONING INSTRUMENT)
Part B includes the symptoms that can appear as a visual indication or message on the front of the
keyboard/display module. These messages are a result of the instrument’
s extensive automonitoring
system. (AUTOMONITOR MESSAGES)
Part C discusses the visual information that the operator can instigate and use as part of the troubleshooting process. These visual indications are normally not available unless specifically requested by
the operator. (OPERATOR INSTIGATED INDICATIONS)
Part D contains symptoms (other than those that appear on the visual display) that indicate a possible
problem. Typically, these types of symptoms can be associated with a specific functional area of the
instrument. (FUNCTIONAL SYMPTOMS )
Electrical Safety Precautions
In all nonelectrically oriented sections of this manual, the standard Hazardous Voltage Warning strongly
recommends turning off all of the power to the instrument. However, this section, as well as most of
Service Section, requires that some electrical measurements be made on active (energized) circuits.
MEASUREMENTS AND/OR TESTS THAT NEED TO BE MADE ON ELECTRICALLY
ENERGIZED PORTIONS OF THE INSTRUMENT SHOULD BE PERFORMED ONLY BY
SERVICE- TRAINED PERSONNEL WHO ARE AWARE OF ALL INVOLVED HAZARDS.
The Service Section of this manual contains proper step by step procedures for replacing electronic
boards and other major assemblies. These procedures include instructions that should be followed for
both personnel and instrument welfare.
`
The following steps require protection against ESD (Electro- Static Discharge).
Use a grounded wrist strap (part no. 9300- 0969 - large, or 9300- 0970 - small)
connected to a suitable ground. Failure to heed this caution may result in
damage to the instrument.
`
When storing or in between handling of PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards), always
place them in static control envelopes or enclosures.
Recommended Test Equipment
The only piece of test equipment required to troubleshoot the instrument is a good, volt/ohmmeter.
SVC 1- 2
PART A
NON- FUNCTIONING INSTRUMENT
A totally non- functioning or DEAD instrument is one that apparently isn’
t working at all. It has no visual
indications (i.e., messages) on its front panel and produces no noise or heat.
The most obvious cause for such a problem is that line power is not reaching the instrument or that the
instrument is not turned on. First check that the Line Power Switch is ON. Then verify that the instrument power cord is plugged into a proper receptacle. If neither of these acts restore the instrument to
operation, suspect that there may be a problem with the receptacle or the power being supplied to it.
This type of situation generally requires that a local electrical maintenance person be informed to remedy the problem. However, on the rare occasion that power is being provided, but the instrument is not
working, the problem area must be isolated by tests and measurements on the instrument.
MEASUREMENTS AND/OR TESTS THAT NEED TO BE MADE ON ELECTRICALLY
ENERGIZED PORTIONS OF THE INSTRUMENT SHOULD BE PERFORMED ONLY BY
SERVICE- TRAINED PERSONNEL WHO ARE AWARE OF ALL INVOLVED HAZARDS.
Any one of several problems internal to the instrument can cause the non- functioning symptom. Since
the instrument operates under processor control, a faulty component in the CPU or Clock sections of
the Main Board may be the source of the problem. More commonly, a problem in the instrument’
s power supply would be the most likely to cause this type of problem.
Two bits of information, plus the use of IPB, should enable service- trained personnel to isolate and
then correct the cause of the problem if it is power related. The first important bit of information is about
the fuses that are internal to the instrument. The second bit is the normal sequence of events that occurs as the instrument is energized (Power On Sequence).
Fuse Information
Fuses have been installed at several locations within the instrument for the protection of major power
circuits. They are designed to open as quickly as possible to prevent damage to other components
within the circuit. Occasionally, an opened fuse may have been caused by a short onetime surge; however, it is far more common that a component within the protected circuit has failed. When an open fuse
is noticed, replace it once. If the replacement blows, suspect a component failure.
Fuses are located on the AC Power Board and on the Main Board. The AC Power Board fuses protect
the two high- power circuits. One fuse, (F1) or two in a split phase circuit (F3 & F4), protects the column oven heater and fan. Another fuse (F2) or two in a split phase circuit (F1 & F2) protects the main
power transformer. (Refer to Section 8 of the IPB portion of this document for power supply PCB information. Refer to Section 9 of the IPB portion of this document for main PCB information.)
The three secondary voltages of the main power transformer are protected with fuses located on the
Main Board. F3 protects the 120 VAC secondary which ultimately provides heater power for all of the
zones. F4 and F5 protect the 40 VAC secondary which ultimately provides all of the DC supply voltages
(+5, +10, +15, - 15, +24, - 24). Fuses protect the 3 VAC secondary that is used for FID ignitor (F1)
and electronic flow sensor voltages (F2).
SVC 1- 3
Power On Sequence
As long as correct Line Voltage is provided to the instrument, the following events should occur when
the instrument’
s Line Power Switch is placed in its ON position. Main Transformer (T1) primary winding
is energized (fused by F2 on AC Board or F1 & F2 if split phase). (Refer to Section 9 of the IPB portion
of this document for main PCB information.)
The three secondary windings (3 VAC, 40 VAC, and 120 VAC) of T1 are energized. All are fused on the
Main Board. These voltages arrive on the main board through connector J10. (Refer to appendix A of
this document for all connector information.)
The 40 VAC is rectified and divided to produce +24 VDC and +15 VDC.
From these DC supplies, the +10 VDC, the +5 VDC, and the Master Oscillator (for clocks) begin to
function.
As these other supplies begin, the (POWER ON PULSE) and the CPU portion of the circuitry begin to
initialize, first themselves, and then through the Data Bus and other portions of the instrument.
One of the initializations that occurs through the Data Bus is in the Triac Control section to produce the
control signal for K3 (zone power relay) on the Main Board and the signal for K1 ( oven contactor) on
the AC Board.
K3 relay allows distribution of the fused 120 VAC secondary from the Main Transformer.
K1 power contactor on the AC Board allows line power distribution to the Oven Fan Motor and to the
Oven Heater Triac circuit. Note that the oven fan will run as long as power is allowed (under software
control) through K1. However, the oven heater is NOT energized until oven heat is requested.
SVC 1- 4
PART B
AUTOMONITOR MESSAGES
This section includes the symptoms that can appear as a visual indication or message on the front of
the keyboard/display module. These messages may appear (depending upon their seriousness) either
at the time that the problem occurs or in the instrument’
s Self Test.
Messages resulting from the automonitoring software within the instrument will be one of four classes:
FATAL ERR:
H2 ALARM FAULT:
WARN:
The FATAL ERR: message is the most serious. This class of message indicates that the HP 5890 SERIES II is essentially nonfunctional. The instrument will always go to a NOT READY state and even the
keyboard is inoperative.
FATAL ERR: EPP & FLOW Indicates Electronic Pressure Control (EPC) and Electronic Flow Sensor(EFS) modules are installed simultaneously. The instrument must be powered down and one of two
modules must be removed to correct this situation. No damage should occur to the instrument.
FATAL ERR: BAD RAM indicates a problem with RAM chip and its circuitry in the CPU Section of Main
Board. Replace Main Board.
FATAL ERR: BAD ROM indicates a problem with ROM chip and its circuitry in the CPU Section of Main
Board. Replace Main Board.
FATAL ERR: > !25 MS indicates that the 40 Hz task couldn’
t complete within !25 milliseconds. Suspect
a problem with the Clock Section of the Main Board; however, the CPU Section could also cause this
indication. Replace Main Board.
FATAL ERR: STACK ERR indicates that stack is beyond legal limits. Suspect a problem in the CPU Section of the Main Board. Replace Main Board.
FATAL ERR: RUN CNTL indicates that the Run Control task couldn’
t complete within 25 milliseconds.
Suspect a problem with the Clock Section of the Main Board; however, the CPU Section could also
cause this indication. Replace Main Board.
As can be seen from the FATAL ERR: message listing above, they are generally an indication that a failure exists either in the Clock or CPU Sections of the Main Board. The Clock Section operation can be
easily checked by measuring the frequencies on its outputs. Once the clocks are verified to be good,
the CPU (Z80) could be checked by substitution.
The H2 ALARM message indicates a failure of the system to hold or reach the electronic pressure setpoint. All electronic pressures and heated zones will be shut off. To recover, the problem must be corrected and the GC power cycled.
H2 ALARM - EPP A indicates electronic pressure problem with
the A systems ability to hold pressure. Possibly a leak, trouble shoot the proportional control valve,
pressure transducer and the inlet in the case of the EPC. Trouble shoot the forward pressure regulator
and gage in the case of the MPC.
SVC 1- 5
H2 ALARM - EPP B indicates electronic pressure problem with
the B systems ability to hold pressure. Possibly a leak, trouble shoot the proportional control valve,
pressure transducer and the inlet in the case of the EPC. Trouble shoot the forward pressure regulator
and gage in the case of the MPC.
The FAULT: message indicates that a major subsystem of the HP 5890 SERIES II is not functioning
properly. Although the operation of the suspected subsystem is suspended until the problem is corrected, the balance of the GC is operational. Note that the instrument can never reach a fully READY
state when a FAULT condition exists.
FAULT: ADC OFFSET indicates a problem with the thermal ADC offset reading. Replace the Main
Board.
FAULT: LINE SENSE indicates a problem either with the actual line voltage or with the sensing circuit.
Measure the line voltage and if the measurement is between +5% and- 10% of the instruments stated
rating then the line voltage is O.K. Determine if the 120 VAC secondary exists and if its fuse (F3) is
open. If both F3 and the 120 VAC secondary are good then their is a failure in the line sense circuit and
the main board should be replaced.
FAULT: OVEN > MAX+20 indicates that the oven senses its temperature has exceeded the current
setpoint value by more than 20 degrees C. This message (as any FAULT message regarding a temperature problem) shuts down all of the temperature systems. The problem could be either in the oven
sensing or in the oven control circuits. List the oven temperature; if the display indicates that the actual
valve is above 800 degrees C, most likely the oven sensor is open (although it could be some component in the sensing circuit). If the actual value of the oven temperature seems reasonable, the problem
is likely to be in the oven control circuitry.
FAULT: (ZONE NAME) TEMP RDG where the ZONE NAME could be OVEN, INJA, INJB, DETA,
DETB, or AUX. Any of these messages indicates that the specified zone (or oven) temperature reading
was out of acceptable range. This most often is the result of an inoperative sensor in the named zone.
FAULT: (OUTPUT NAME) TEST where the OUTPUT NAME could be DAC1, DAC2, ATTN1, or
ATTN2. If thermal fault messages also appear, suspect the A/D Converter circuitry. The A/D Converter
section of the Main Board is used to measure DAC and ATTN outputs. However, if only this test message appears, the most obvious area to suspect is the D/A Converter portion of the appropriate board.
DAC2 or ATTN2 indicates the D/A section of the Interface Board; whereas the DAC1 or ATTN1 indicates the D/A portion of the Main Board. Other areas that could be at fault include the CPU and A/D
sections of the Main Board, but are less likely. Occasionally, multiple faults messages may exist at the
same time. Only the last message to occur will automatically be displayed on the front panel of the instrument. Others will be retained in the instrument’
s memory. By pressing the CLEAR key, the instrument will roll through all of its Not Ready states (which include all FAULTs).
FAULT: EPP RAM TEST indicates the RAM has failed selftest. This requires board replacement.
FAULT: EPP ROM TEST indicates the ROM has failed selftest and should be replaced.
FAULT: INET CPU indicates that the Communications Interface Board is not responding properly. Typically, this message is caused by a faulty microprocessor (CPU) on the Interface Board.
FAULT: INET CPU RAM indicates that the read/write memory internal to the CPU on the Interface
Board is not functioning as expected. Replace either the Interface Board or its CPU.
SVC 1- 6
FAULT: INET RAM indicates that the RAM chip on the Interface Board is not responding properly. Typically, the RAM chip on the Interface Board should be replaced.
FAULT: INET ROM indicates that the ROM chip on the Interface Board is not responding properly. Typically, the ROM chip on the Interface Board should be replaced.
Another good technique to investigate multiple messages, after noting the currently displayed message, is to switch the power line switch of the instrument off, and then on. This will force the instrument
to process through its initializing SelfTest. During this testing sequence, indications other than the previously displayed message may appear to provide more information.
By running the instrument SelfTest ((either at power turn- on or through the Calib and Test (Clear Dot)
Modes)), WARN: messages may appear.
The WARN: message indicates that a condition exists that may need attention. Generally, the instrument remains fully operational, except for the function indicated on the visual display. Pressing any instrument function will erase the WARN: message. The following five WARN: messages will only appear
via the SelfTest.
WARN: MEMORY RESET indicates that the instrument memory has been reset to the default setpoints
including flow and oven calibrations. This could have been done by operator keyboard entry (see Section 13 of this manual), by RAM replacement, or by removing the battery.
WARN: SIGNAL CHANGED indicates that a detector that was previously assigned to a particular signal
is no longer recognized. The instrument will reconfigure the signal. This may occur as a result of detector boards having been removed during a repair. If these boards have not been recently removed, suspect a failure and refer to Detector Problems later in this section.
WARN: NO DETECTORS indicates that no detector boards are installed or that they are not recognized as being installed by the processor. If detector boards are physically installed and not recognized,
suspect the boards, the I/O section, or the CPU section of the Main Board.
The WARN: OVEN SHUT OFF message is somewhat of a hybrid between other WARN: messages
and a FAULT: message. Similar to other WARN: messages, the WARN: OVEN SHUT OFF message
occurs most often as a result of inoperative hardware (rather than software). This may be something as
simple as the operator leaving the oven door open. However, different from other WARN: (similar to
FAULT:) messages, the WARN: OVEN SHUT OFF message may occur any time that conditions warrant. The operator need not run the SelfTest for this message to be displayed. WARN: OVEN SHUT
OFF indicates that the oven temperature has been shut off because it could not heat as quickly as it
should or because it cooled more slowly than it should. Suspect that the oven flap could be stuck, or
that a large thermal leak from the oven has occurred (make sure that the oven door is shut). Once the
WARN: OVEN SHUT OFF is displayed, the oven temperature will remain off until the message is
cleared. The operator need only to press the
SVC 1- 7
PART C
OPERATOR INSTIGATED INDICATIONS
This section discusses the visual information that the operator can instigate and use as part of the troubleshooting process. These visual indications are normally not available unless specifically requested
by the operator.
There are several functions of the CALIB AND TEST (Clear Dot) modes that can be used as a diagnostic tool. Similarly, the TEST CHROMATOGRAM can be extremely useful. Each of these operator instigated functions is specifically designed to aid the overall troubleshooting process and is activated from
the keyboard.
Of the ten functions accessible through the CALIB AND TEST (Clear Dot), five may be thought of as
servicing functions. The other five functions are generally thought of as operational functions. These are
explained in the operation and reference manuals.
To enter any of the CALIB AND TEST (Clear Dot) modes, press: the Clear key, the Decimal key and a
number from 0 through 9. The actual digits 4,5,7,8,9 represent the typical test modes. These are as
follows:
CLEAR DOT 4
DISPLAY MEMORY
CLEAR DOT 5
SELFTEST
CLEAR DOT 7
HPIL LOOPBACK TEST
CLEAR DOT 8
SET PID CONTROLS
CLEAR DOT 9
DISP TEMP & DEMAND
To escape from any of the CALIB AND TEST (Clear Dot) modes press any of the instrument function
keys.
Calib and Test (Clear Dot 4) Display Memory
This diagnostic routine is initiated from the keyboard by pressing: Upon entering this mode, a single
memory address (ADDR:) and a value (VAL:) will appear on the instrument front panel visual display.
At this time, both the address and the value will be displayed in hexadecimal. In this hexadecimal
mode, the value displayed is two bytes (four digits) of information. The rightmost two digits (one byte)
represent the actual contents of the indicated address. The other two digits correspond to the contents
of the next address. For example, if address 1111 were keyed in and the value F224 resulted, 24 is
the contents of address 1111 and F2 is the contents of address 1112. This could be verified by addressing 1112; then the F2 would become the two rightmost digits (i.e., 3DF2).
In the Display Memory mode, some keys on the keyboard are redefined:
A key becomes A in hexadecimal.
B key becomes B in hexadecimal.
COL COMP1 key becomes C in hexadecimal.
COL COMP2 key becomes D in hexadecimal.
ON key becomes E in hexadecimal.
OFF key becomes F in hexadecimal.
The Decimal Point key increments the address.
SVC 1- 8
The Minus key decrements the address.
The ENTER key switches the type of value presentation. The binary display mode can be entered from
the hexadecimal mode by pressing . If already in the binary mode, it will return to the hexadecimal
mode.
The binary mode is very similar to the hexadecimal mode except that the value of the address, and only
that value (one byte), is displayed in the binary code. If the next value (one byte in binary) is desired,
simply increment the address, which is always displayed in hexadecimal. The incrementing and decrementing of addresses in the binary mode are done in the same manner as in the hexadecimal mode.
To leave this Display Memory routine, press any of the instrument function keys. This also reestablishes
the normal key definitions.
Calib and Test (Clear Dot 5) SelfTest
This instrument test is exactly the same as the one that occurs automatically at power turn on, except it
is entered whenever the operator decides. It is initiated from the keyboard by pressing: The first indication a user has that the instrument is working is when the unit tests its RAM (Random Access Memory)
and the visual display portion of the front panel. The entire visual display (all possible dots) and all LEDs
turn on for a few seconds.
The next indication is when the unit displays TESTING MEMORY. During this time, the unit tests most
of the processor memory (ROM) circuits. Note that during this time only the NOT READY LED remains
lit.
The third indication is when the unit displays TESTING SIGNAL PATH. During this phase of the selftest,
the unit actually exercises most of the signal handling sections of the Main Board. Note that the analog
sensors (i.e., temperature sensors) are NOT tested at this time; they are tested after the selftest. However, by linking the A/D through the CPU to the D/A and by looping the D/A output back as an input to
the A/D, most of the Main Board’
s signal handling circuits are checked.
The fourth (and unless an error is found, the final) indication is the PASSED SELFTEST message. This
message verifies that the selftest sequence has been completed. The PASSED SELFTEST display remains until some further action is taken by the operator or some area not tested during the SelfTest is
detected.
By pressing the clear key, the visual display should change to some message about OVEN TEMP. This
action, with its resulting message, verifies that the keyboard is communicating with the CPU.
Calib and Test (Clear Dot 7)
HPIL Loopback Test This diagnostic test requires that one of the HPIL cables be connected from the
OUT to the IN. The test is then initiated from the keyboard by pressing: By entering this test, 128 frames
will be transmitted from the CPU through the Communications Interface Board. With the HPIL cable installed, the same word should be transmitted back to the Z80 processor, sensed and compared with
the transmitted word. If the comparison verifies correct transmission and reception, a PASSED SELFTEST message will be displayed on the instrument’
s front panel visual display. Note that this is the
HPIL SelfTest and is not the same as the instrument SelfTest done at power turn on.
If a component failure exists in the HPIL circuitry, or if either the Interface Board or HPIL Cable is not
properly installed, a FAILED SELFTEST message will be displayed.

Test Chromatogram Signal Output Test
This diagnostic test is selected from the keyboard by pressing One of the signal selection keys either
SIG 1 or SIG 2 and the 9 key on the numeric key pad and the ENTER key. Test plot mode is confirmed
by the display showing SIGNAL 1 (or 2) TEST PLOT. Pressing SIG 1 (or 2) a second time displays
the current signal level value (which is 0.0 initially). This permits monitoring the output signal.
The test chromatogram, which is permanently stored in the HP 5890 SERIES II, is initiated by pressing
the START key. Each chromatographic cycle consists of three peaks. Each peak is about 1/10 the
height of the previous peak, with the first (tallest) peak having a height value of about 125 mV at = 0
(+1 V analog output); halfheight width of this peak is about 0.13 minutes. Each cycle is about 1.5 minutes in length. The chromatogram will continue to cycle until the STOP key is pressed. The test chromatogram is useful as a troubleshooting aid in deciding whether a lost or noisy signal observed at a connected integrating or chart recording device is due to a chromatographic problem (lost sample due to
leaks, noise due to a dirty detector, etc.), versus problems either with the integrating/recording device
itself, or in its connecting cables.
If the test chromatogram does not exhibit any problems at the integrating/recording device, a chromatographic problem is likely to exist; if the test chromatogram exhibits noise, or does not appear at all, the
problem is most likely to be hardware related. Check setpoints on both the HP 5890 SERIES II and the
integrating/recording device.

PART D
FUNCTIONAL SYMPTOMS
This section contains symptoms (other than those that appear on the visual display) that indicate a possible problem. Typically, these types of symptoms can be associated with a specific functional area of
the instrument.
Zone doesn’
t heat all other zones O.K.
With an Ohm meter measure the resistance of the cartridge heater (should be about 200- 220 ohms).
With the power removed this can be measured by removing the J9 connector for INJA, INJB, DETA,
and DETB. To measure the AUX zone remove the J14 connector. The pins are labeled on the main
board next to the appropriate J connector. Replace the cartridge heater if it is open or shorted. If the
cartridge heater tests O.K. and sensor test O.K. (see temperature sensor resistance chart), the problem
is in the zone control on the main board and the main board should be replaced. To measure resistance of sensors remove connector P7, sensors are labeled on main PCB.
Zone temperature is unstable.
If Zone will not reach desired temperature or cycles over more then plus or minus 1 degree C then the
insulation around the zone and the insulation of the oven shell should be examined and additional insulation added if necessary. Also refer to the operating manual to verify the zone is being used properly(i.e., oven at - 50 degrees C, injection port at 100 degrees C). This type of operation will not work.
The Main Board is generally serviced from a replacement aspect, the introduction includes an illustration of its functional configuration followed by information about its connectors and test points.
Any replacement or space electrical parts that are subject to damage by static electricity will be shipped
in static- protective bags or containers. Be certain to utilize these protective devices when storing items
of this nature.
Generally, since board or module replacement constitutes the majority of electronic repairs, the only
electronic test equipment necessary is a quality Volt Ohm Ampmeter.
The HP 5890 Series II GC contains a minimum of four and a maximum of nine electronic boards. The
four boards always installed are one of the AC Power Boards, the Keyboard and Display Board(usually
done as one module), and the Main Board. The actual AC Power Board located in the rear of the instrument behind the column oven compartment is one of three possible boards based on the voltage and
phase configuration of the line. The Keyboard and Display Board are two boards located on the front of
the Electronics Module. The Keyboard plugs directly into the Display Board. The Main Board is
mounted inside the right side panel of the instrument and occupies most of the space in the Electronics
Module. More importantly, the Main Board contains most of the instrument’
s electronics.
General Description:
The 05890- 60015 PC board is a collection of circuits which allow operation of the 5890 Series II gas
chromatograph. The circuits on the new board include power supplies, CPU, A/D converter, D/A converter, clocks and general control circuits. (Refer to the main PCB diagrams, pages SVC 1 - 12 and
SVC 1 - 13.)
The functions provided by the new PC board are the same as those provided by the original HP 5890A
GC except that components have been added to control an additional heated zone and 2 AC valves.
The new board differs only in its implementation of these functions. The foremost change is the use of
a 68 pin PLCC custom IC which performs the same functions as do 26 TTL IC’
s on the original
05890- 60010 board
SVC 1- 11
Connectors 1 thru 15 are used to connect the Main Board either with the other electronic assemblies
within the instrument or external devices, such as an integrator. (Refer to the main PCB diagrams,
pages SVC 1 - 13 and SVC 1 - 14. Refer to appendix a of this document for information on the main
PCB connectors.)

INLET COMPONENTS
REPLACING INLET COMPONENTS
There are five inlet options available for the HP 5890 Series II Gas Chromatograph; packed column,
packed column with septum purge, split/splitless capillary, split- only capillary, and Programmable Cool
On- Column capillary (PCOC). Maintenance procedures for all the inlets are given in the following
pages. Procedures are supplied to remove, replace, and/or clean various subassemblies, based on the
current maintenance philosophy, i. e., to allow replacement of the lowest level components applicable
for a particular inlet.
Specific part numbers are not given in this section. For all replacement part numbers, refer to Section 5
of the IPB portion of this document (Inlet Components).
All of the inlets are heated using a heater/sensor setup which consists of at least one heater cartridge
and one sensor cartridge. Heating of the inlet zones is not covered in this section. For information on
the zone heater/sensor systems, refer to Section 6 of the service portion of this document (Zone Temperature).
This document is not meant to provide instruction for first time installation of the inlet options discussed.
Add- on sheets exist for just this purpose, and should be referenced when performing a first time installation.

PCOC EPC/MPC TROUBLESHOOTING
The Programmable Cool On Column (PCOC) injection port is designed to allow the injection syringe to
admit sample directly into the capillary column(320, 200, 100 micron id). This is accomplished by the
use of an insert which serves to align the syringe with the capillary column and make a seal with both
the column and the syringe needle. Maximum sample volumes are smaller compared with other inlets,
typically in the range of 0.5 microlitre to 2.0 microlitre. The ideal volume depends on the column id, the
compatibility of the sample solvent and the stationary phyase, sample concentration, stationary phase
film thickness, and column flow rate. Usually the smaller the sample the better, providing that sensitivity
requirements are met.
The Programmable Cool On Column injection port operates by forward pressure control of the inlet and
the inclusion of a preset foward pressure contolled septum purge vent carries septum bleed out to vent.
A typical example of pressure setting and associated flows would be: 50psi for the carrier with a setting
of 10 to 20psi in the injection port. This will also yeild a 10 to 20 ml/min septum purge vent flow.
Expected ranges of operation follow:

Safety Shutdown (Standard): If the system is unable to reach or maintain pressure set point value after
45 seconds the following 3 things happen. The alarm relay is triggered and the alarm sounds immediately. Pressure Control Valve shuts off all but a few ml/min of flow (bypass flow still permitted). The
oven and all heated zones are shut down.
This is a Fatal Error. The only way to recover is to power cycle the GC. If the leak has not been fixed,
the same sequence will repeat.
The Column head pressure may be controlled by either of two systems, Manual Presure Control (MPC)
or Electronic Pressure Control (EPC)
The MPC in an uncomplicated system consisting of 1) a manually adjustable forward pressure regulator
which sets the pressure in the inlet and 2) a factory preset forward pressure regulator allowing 10 to 20
ml/min to escape to vent pulling septum bleed with it.
Possible failures could include pluged restrictor in the inlet to the FPR. This would prevent the inlet from
reaching pressure setpoint. The FPR could be stuck open allowing the injection port to go to the same
pressure as the source gas tank. It could be stuck in the closed position preventing the injection point
from reaching the setpoint. Leaks in any of the tubing connections would also prevent the injection port
from reaching or maintaining pressure setpoint. Leaks at the Septum, Column fitting, Septum Purge
Control, Column Head Pressure gage or Purge Vent restrictor could also make injection port pressure
control difficult. These leaks should be checked by capping off the injection port or suspected part to
isolate it rather then using soap solution leak detection fluid.
The EPC uses a digitally controlled proportional control valve and electronic presssure transducer to
perform the same functions as the MPC’
s manual forward pressure control and column head pressure
gage. One additional feature of the EPC is a bypass flow line designed to protect the column with a
small flow (.1 to 3 ml/min) in the event that the proportional control valve or electronics would fail. The
same plugging or leak considerations as the MPC apply with the addition of the possiblity of electronic
failures to either the proportional valve, pressure transducer or electronic control board. These will be
verified by substitution.

Check that the EFS is operational by displaying the flow rate for each channel (“

the display board and also verify the value with a bubble flow meter. It is suggested that the
flow rate through each channel be different, in order to verify that the plumbing for the two
channels has not been “cross- connected.”
20. If a flow rate value for either channel is displayed which does not correspond to the value obtained using a bubble flow meter, leak- test the entire system. If the system is completely
leak- free, the EFS may require calibration.
SVC 3- 21
Electronic Flow Sensor (EFS) Calibration
Electronic flow sensor (EFS) calibration may be performed any time to ensure displayed flow rate accurately represents real gas flow rate through the sensor. The EFS is factory calibrated for four standard
gases, H2, He, N2, and Ar/CH4, within the flow rate range of 0 to 100 ml/min. This covers the majority
of chromatographic applications.
Two situations where it would be appropriate to perform recalibration would be where a nonstandard
gas is to be used (e.g., something OTHER than H2, He, N2, or Ar/CH4), or if flow rates in excess of 100
ml/min are to be used.
EFS calibration requires setting two values for a given flow channel- first, the ZERO value (defined with
NO flow through the given flow channel) and then the GAIN value (calculated, based upon a measured
flow rate value).
IF CALIBRATION IS BEING PERFORMED FOR H2, OBSERVE PROPER SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS TO PREVENT A FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARD.
Prior to performing the calibration procedure, the following must be done:
D
The instrument must be on for at least one hour for thermal equilibration of the EFS.
D
Since gas flow through the channel to be calibrated will be interrupted, detectors should be
turned off (particularly an NPD or TCD! ), and the oven cooled to ambient temperature (to
protect columns).
D
A flow measuring device is required, accurate to better than 1 ml/min.
D
The EFS is calibrated to measure volumetric flow at standard temperature and pressure.
Flows measured at ambient temperature with a bubble flow meter will have to be converted
from ambient temperature and pressure to standard temperature and pressure.
Preparation
1. Access the EFS by removing the left side panel; remove two screws along its lower edge, slide
the panel toward the rear of the instrument, and then lift.
2. Through the keyboard, select CALIB AND TEST mode, function 2:
CLEAR
.

ENTER
GAIN A is displayed, followed by two values: the observed flow rate through Channel A, and the current
GAIN calibration value for Channel A.
Setting the ZERO Calibration Value
The ZERO calibration value MUST be set with NO gas flow through the channel being calibrated.
1. Press ZERO
: FLOW A ZERO is displayed, followed by a value (the current ZERO calibration
value for EFS Channel A). Note that Channel A is assumed by default; if channel B is to be calibrated instead, press B .
SVC 3- 22
2. DISCONNECT the gas source to the particular flow channel being calibrated. DO NOT trust an
on/off valve, pressure regulator, or mass flow controller to be an effective shutoff device; ANY
gas flowing through the EFS will invalidate the ZERO calibration value. Disconnect the source
at any convenient point (e.g., at the connection of the supply line into the instrument).
3. Locate the EFS module and note its labelling: CHANNEL A/CHANNEL B, IN/OUT. For the channel being calibrated, locate and disconnect its OUT fitting; use two wrenches in opposition to
prevent twisting the tubes.
4. Install the EFS flow- measuring adapter (Part No. 05890- 80620) into the female OUT fitting to
the EFS module. Connect a bubble flow meter to the adapter.
5
Allow ample time (up to 1/2- hour) for residual gas within connected plumbing to bleed off.
Verify that absolutely NO flow is observed at the connected bubble flow meter.

Setting the GAIN Calibration Value
After the ZERO calibration value is set at zero flow rate through the given channel, the GAIN calibration
value must be set, based upon a measured flow rate.
1. At the keyboard, press FLOW

observed flow rate through the channel, and the current GAIN calibration value for the channel).
2. Connect the gas supply to the channel being calibrated.DO NOT connect the OUT fitting for the
particular channel.
3. Using a suitable flow- measuring device (accurate to better than 1 ml/min) connected at the
OUT fitting for the given channel, adjust flow through the channel so measured flow rate is approximately in the middle of the range to be used. For example, if the range of flow rates to be
used is between 50 and 150 ml/min, measured flow rate should be adjusted to about 100 ml/
min.

NOTE
The displayed flow rate value should now be quite close to the measured flow rate
value. If not, drift may have occurred. If drift occurs, the process should be repeated.
7. This completes EFS calibration. Remove the flow- measuring adapter, connect the channel
OUT fittings (use two wrenches in opposition to avoid twisting tubes), replace the left side panel, and restore the instrument to service.
Entering Specific ZERO and GAIN Values
Calibration values for ZERO and GAIN should be recorded when a particular channel is calibrated.

REPLACING DETECTOR COMPONENTS
There are five detector options available for the HP 5890 Series II Gas Chromatograph; Thermal
Conductivity (TCD), Flame Ionization (FID), Nitrogen- Phosphorus (NPD), Electron Capture (ECD), and
Flame Photometric (FPD). Maintenance procedures for all the detectors are given in the following
pages. Procedures are supplied to remove, replace, and/or clean various subassemblies, based on the
current maintenance philosophy, i. e., to allow replacement of the lowest level components applicable
for a particular detector.
Specific part numbers are not given in this section. For all replacement part numbers, refer to Section 2
of the IPB portion of this document (Detector Options).
All of the detectors are heated using a heater/sensor setup which consists of at least one heater cartridge and one sensor cartridge. Heating of the detector zones is not covered in this section. For information on the zone heater/sensor systems, refer to Section 6 of the service portion of this document
(Zone Temperature).
This document is not meant to provide instruction for first time installation of the detector options discussed. Add- on sheets exist for just this purpose, and should be referenced when performing a first
time installation.

ELECTRON CAPTURE DETECTOR (ECD)
The ECD consists of two parts: the detector cell, and a heated block. UNDER NO CONDITION IS THE
ECD CELL TO BE DISASSEMBLED. It will simply be exchanged for a new one. This does not require
the detector heated block to be removed from the mainframe. There are two types of ECD detectors
which may be installed in an HP 5890 Series II. The older version (shown below on the left) is referred
to as the 19233A/19235A variety. The newer version (shown to the right of the 19233A/19235A version)
is referred to as the G1223A/G1224A variety. Instructions for disassembly and maintenance are given
for both versions of the ECD detector.
ALL VERSIONS OF ECD DETECTOR WELDMENTS (CELLS) CONTAIN RADIOACTIVE
MATERIAL. EXPOSURE TO RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL IS HAZARDOUS TO HUMAN
HEALTH. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD AN ECD DETECTOR WELDMENT
BE DISASSEMBLED. ECD DETECTOR WELDMENTS SHOULD BE EXCHANGED FOR
NEW ONES.

Adjust High Voltage
After the replacement of a photomultiplier tube it may be necessary to adjust the output of the high voltage supply to the Photo Multiplier Tube (PMT) in order to attain the optimum sensitivity. After installing
the PMT, the FPD check- out/performance verification must be performed. Results are compared with
those of the original PMT. Assuming gas flow rates are correct, and the system leak- free, the PMT
high voltage should be altered only if there is a significant change in sensitivity. The high voltage is
originally set at the factory for optimum sensitivity; signal/noise ratio (0.90 =/- 0.06 Vdc), corresponding to - 850 V dc =/- 50 V dc at the PMT. The PMT voltage limits are: 0.72 V dc to 1.05 Vdc corresponding to a PMT voltage of - 670 Vdc to - 990 Vdc.

REPLACING OVEN TEMPERATURE CONTROL COMPONENTS
Oven temperature control components include the oven, the oven fan and motor, the oven flap motor,
and the cryogenic valve (if installed). Removal and installation instructions for all of these components
are found on the following pages. Refer to page 20 of this section for information on troubleshooting
the oven temperature control components. Refer to Section 6 of the IPB for part numbers associated
with the oven temperature control components.
Current maintenance philosophy suggests that the oven shroud assembly be replaced as a unit, rather
then replacing the heater element or sensor element individually. Maintenance procedures have been
included for both entire shroud replacement, as well as individual part replacement, in the event that
the shroud assembly is not available in a timely manner, etc.
Specific part numbers are not given in this section. For all replacement part numbers, refer to Section 6
of the IPB portion of this document (Oven Assembly).
This document is not meant to provide instruction for first time installation of the options discussed.
Add- on sheets exist for just this purpose, and should be referenced when performing a first time installation.

SVC 5- 28
Calibrate Oven Temperature
To maximize the precision of retention time information, particularly if retention times are to be compared to that of other chromatographs, it may be necessary to calibrate the oven temperature control
circuitry using an independent temperature measuring device.
With the factory- set calibration difference value of 0 (zero), the displayed oven temperature is accurate
to within 1% of the actual temperature (which is expressed in _K (Kelvin)).
The HP 5890 Series II provides the means to reset oven temperature monitoring (if necessary) so that
the ACTUAL displayed temperature value accurately represents the correct temperature.
Calibration of the oven temperature control circuitry requires the operator to enter the difference (delta)
value (in _C) between an independently measured temperature and the corresponding displayed oven
temperature. For example, if the actual measured oven temperature is 148.73_C, while the corresponding displayed temperature is 150.00_C, the delta value is - 1.27.
Correction Value = Measured Temperature (_C) -
Displayed Temperature (_C)
Setting the Oven Calibration Value
Oven temperature calibration measurements should be made at a temperature in the mid- range of
those temperatures normally attained during operation. Allow ample time (up to 1/2- hour) for thermal
equilibration at the selected temperature. No drift should be observed.
1. Place the temperature sensing probe in the region of the oven which is occupied by the
column(s).
2. Set the oven temperature to the desired level, allowing ample time for thermal equilibration.
3. At the keyboard select the CALIB AND TEST MODE, function 1:
CLEAR
.
1
ENTER
4. CALIB will be displayed, followed by two values; the observed oven temperature (to 0.01_C),
and the current delta correction value. Record the current delta correction value. (If problems
occur during recalibration, the value may be re- entered.)
5. Assuming no drift has occurred, the new delta correction value may be entered using the numeric keypad, followed by pressing ENTER .
6. CALIB DELTA will be displayed until ENTER is pressed again. Then the oven temperature calibration occurs. Note that after oven calibration, the displayed oven temperature value should
closely match the value of the installed temperature measuring device.
NOTE
`
Any delta correction value may be entered within a range of ¦ 10.00_C. If a value
beyond these limits is entered, the message CORRECTION TOO HIGH is
displayed.
`
Assuming the battery protecting the HP 5890 Series II memory is functional, the
new delta calibration value remains in effect even if the instrument is switched,
disconnected from its power source, or experiences a power failure.

ZONE TEMPERATURE
REPLACING TEMPERATURE CONTROL COMPONENTS
The HP 5890 Series II uses heater cartridges to apply and temperature sensor cartridges to sense heat
at the various heated zones (inlets, detectors, and valve box, if installed). Replacement of a heater/sensor cable assembly (which consists of the heater and sensor cartridges, as well as the wiring connecting them to the main PCB) is accomplished by partial removal of the applicable heated zone component. In addition, the heater/sensor cable assembly must be disconnected from the applicable
connectors on the main PCB. Removal of the wiring from the connectors on the main PCB is covered
first, followed by instructions for removal of the heater and sensor cartridges from the heated zone components.
If a TCD detector is installed, a delta- t temperature sensor is used in addition to the standard temperature sensor cartridge. Removal and replacement of the delta- t temperature sensor cartridge is discussed after the procedures for standard heater/temperature sensor cartridges.
The HP 5890 Series II also uses an optional cryogenic valve to cool the PCOC inlet. While the cryogenic valve is discussed with oven components in Section 5 of the service portion of this document, removal of the PCOC nozzle (which carries the cooling gas from the valve to the inlet) is discussed in this section.
Specific part numbers are not given in this section. For replacement part numbers, refer to the section
of the IPB applicable to the heated zone component being addressed (i. e. inlets - Section 5, detectors - Section 2, valve box - Section 7, cryogenic valve - Section 6).

INTRODUCTION
The valves described in this manual are manufactured by VALCO Instruments Co, Houston, Texas. As
members of the W- series product line, they are known as ”minivalves.”The valve body is made of Nitronic- 60 with 1/16 inch fittings. The W- series valves are also known as the 18900F series. These valves have
better leakage resistance and a longer life expectancy. An installed valve system is an integrated part of the
HP 5890 Series II Gas Chromatograph. Proper instrument operation will prolong the life of the valve system.
Read all the accompanying information and avoid the following operational abuses:
1) Exceeding the specified temperature and pressure ranges.
2) Plugging a valve with column packing or sample precipitation.
3) Scoring of valve surfaces with column packing or particulates in liquid or gas sample.
4) Contaminating the system with samples (noneluting materials) or poor quality support
gases.

The valve body is made of Nitronic- 60. This is a high chromium, high nickel content stainless steel, that has
excellent chemical resistance, anti galling characteristics, and high tensile strength.
External tubing
(plumbing) is connected to the valve body ports by the use of provided ferrules and fittings.
All general purpose valve bodies include mechanical stops in their index lips. The stops are predetermined
to limit rotor rotation (i.e., 90 Degrees, 60 Degrees, and 36 Degrees), so the correct flow path results when
the index pin is close to or against either stop of the index lip.

Also note the rotor type stamped into the valve body. The letter indicates the rotor installed in the particular
body. The rotors are interchangeable. Polytetrafluorethylene (Teflon) rotors may be used from 0 to 175
degrees C (This low temperature valve may be marked with P). High Temperature (polyimide) rotors may be
used from 100 to 350 degrees C (This high temperature valve may be marked with PT or just T). The rotor
seat of the valve body is a highly polished conical surface. This finish precludes adsorption of most GC
samples. Additionally, the polished surface with a properly seated rotor will prevent leakage around the
rotor and between nonselected ports.
The rotor assembly is an integral molded and machined conical hub, necessary for proper seating. The
sample will contact either Teflon (low temperature) or polyimide (high temperature) as well as the stainless
steel of the valve.
The rotor fits precisely into the body and nests in the conical seat. It is held in place by a preload assembly.
The grooves in the rotor determine the paths between specific ports. The index pin prevents rotation beyond either stop of the index lip. Valve ports are connected by the grooves only when the index pin is close
to or against either stop of the index lip. Any intermediate position results in shutoff of flow through the valve.

General Purpose Valves (GPVs)
The standard general purpose valves have 1/16 inch zero dead volume fittings and their internal port diameter is 0.016 inch. They may be classified by the number of ports they contain and their useful temperature
range. The valves with Teflon rotors may be used in the range 0 to 175 degrees C whereas the valves with
polyimide rotors function best in the range of 100 to 350 degrees C. Because of the difference in the operation temperature ranges, do not mix these two valve types in the same system. HP offers only the 6 & 10 port
GSV’
s and the 4 port LSV.
1/16 inch Teflon rotor valves: 0 to 175 degrees C
1/16 inch polyimide rotor valves: 100 to 350 degrees C
Adjustable restrictor valves: ambient to 225 degrees C
Liquid Sample Valves: (see Liquid Sample Valves, this section)
The HP 5890 Series II was designed to accept valves heated in their own compartments because valves
operate best at a constant temperature. It is important to realize that when a valve is inside a gas chromatograph oven during a temperature programmed run, the valve temperature can lag behind the programmed
oven temperature by as much as 20 degrees C, depending on the rate employed. The mass of the programmed valve is responsible for this lag.

Gas Sample Loops
A 0.25cc sample loop is included with all valve systems configured for gas sampling. 10cc and 5cc loops
occupy one valve position, limiting the number of valves that can be housed in a valve compartment.
SVC 7- 5
LIQUID SAMPLE VALVES (LSVs)
Liquid sampling valves are designed for use with liquefied gases under pressure such as ethane, propane,
butane, LNG, etc. They are not intended for nonvolatile liquids (at room conditions) where a concealed leak
may allow an accumulation or pool of liquid to form that may present a significant fire hazard. All standard
liquid sample valves have 1/16 inch fittings and are classified by the sample size of the installed rotor (0.2mL,
0.5mL, or 1mL capacity). The two types of valves available are standard or low pressure (1000 psig) and
high pressure (5000 psig), in the four port, single purpose liquid sampling valve. Whenever a liquid sample
valve is used, an adjustable restrictor is employed on the sample outlet line to maintain internal sample pressure and thereby keep a compressed gas liquefied.
SVC 7- 6
TROUBLESHOOTING AND MAINTENANCE
Chromatographic Symptoms
Troubleshooting valves and their related plumbing is primarily a matter of systematic checking and verification of unimpaired mechanical operation of any moving part. This requires an understanding of how the
valve functions internally and how the plumbing is configured. A plumbing diagram is essential for effective
troubleshooting. The following symptom cause list gives the most commonly encountered problems and
solutions found with valves.
LOSS OF SENSITIVITY OR EXCESSIVE DRIFT
Several possible causes exist for overall deterioration of the chromatogram. Contamination in the valve
requires a thorough cleaning. Internal leakage necessitates a complete disassembly and inspection of the
mating surfaces.
Poor temperature control may require a full check of electronic and thermal components.
Lack of proper conditioning techniques, columns, etc.
Failure or deterioration of other components (i.e., columns, detectors, etc.).
LOSS OF PEAKS IN SPECIFIC AREAS OF THE CHROMATOGRAM
Entire sections of chromatographic data can be lost due to a valve that does not rotate or one that rotates
improperly. Other than obvious component failures (i.e., solenoid, actuator, etc.), generally improper adjustments and misalignments cause most problems. Check that adequate air (about 482 kPa or 70 psi) is
supplied.
Check if the valve is rotating at all.
If the valve rotates, check for proper alignment of the actuator or mechanical binding or slippage of connecting parts.
Check for blocked flow paths with valve in both positions.
BASELINE UPSETS
Frequently baseline upsets may be seen on chromatograms when valves are switched. These upsets are
normally caused by pressure changes within the system, injections of large volume samples, or by changing the amount of restriction in the flow path. These upsets will become more of a problem when high sensitivity is required. Addition of a fixed restriction downstream from the valve may help minimize the upset.
When possible, changes in column length may also help reduce the upsets. Fixed restrictors are used immediately before flame detectors to prevent flameout and are used in some instances to prevent pressure
surges from damaging TCD filaments. Needle valves (Nupro) can be used as adjustable restrictors; however, they are used typically where a matched restriction is desired and not for preventing pressure or flow
surges. Often confused with baseline upsets, an offset is a shift in the baseline that does not return quickly
to the original level. Baseline offsets may be caused by air leaks but more commonly are due to a change in
SVC 7- 7
gas purity or flow rate in the detector. Poor carrier gas or improperly conditioned filters and traps should be
suspected whenever offsets occur.
EXTRANEOUS PEAKS
Air peaks are sometimes seen in a chromatogram when leakage occurs because the valve rotor does not
seal properly. These leaks may not be detectable by using the soap bubble method. The Leak Test procedure is described in Section 3 of this manual. If a leak is suspected but cannot be located with soap
bubbles, a pressure check will determine definitely if a leak exists. Extraneous peaks can occur sometimes
due to improper conditioning of the valve or contamination. If leaks are not apparent, clean or condition the
valve. Obviously other causes, totally unrelated to the valve, may exhibit similar symptoms. Impure (i.e.,
containing water) carrier gas can cause extraneous peaks.
LOCATING LEAKS
Leak checking the plumbing involved in a valve configured system must be done carefully and methodically.
Several methods may be used, and the best choice will depend upon expediency, accessibility, and the
magnitude of the leak. Refer to Initial Supply Pressures and Leak Testing in Section 3 for details.
PRESSURE CHECK
The pressure check method will indicate, but sometimes not isolate, a leak in the flow path. Since this method does not necessarily isolate the leak, one of the leak check methods may be needed to locate the leak
specifically. Note that each valve in a system has two flow paths, ON and OFF. A leak sometimes occurs in
only one of these two positions. Check both. To do so perform the following:
1. Disconnect the detector from the valve system.
2. Cap the valve system at its outlet and pressurize to 689
kPa (100 psi). Allow 2 to 5
minutes for pressure to equilibrate. (If a flow sensor exists, it should read zero flow.)
3. Turn the knob on the regulator counterclockwise until it turns freely. The regulator is now
turned off and the gauge is indicating pressure within the valve system.
4. Commonly, the pressure will drop quickly for approximately 30- 60 seconds; then stabilize.
After this initial drop, the gauge should not show more than a 6.89 to
13.78 kPa (1 to 2 psi) drop
during a 10 minute period.
5. If no leak is indicated, actuate all valves and repeat steps 2 through 4.
6. If a leak does show up, try to pinpoint the source with a
soap bubble technique. Do
not assume the leak must exist only at a valve. Often plumbing connections such as unions or
bulkhead fittings are at fault. See Valve Box Top Assembly Removal in this section if exposing the
valve system is necessary.
7. If the leak cannot be found easily, divide the system in half and repeat the pressure check.
Continue dividing by halves, and pressure check until the leak is isolated.

The body assembly and its component parts are made from Nitronics 60, nickel steel. If required the
valve may also be produced from Hastelloy C. External tubing (plumbing) is connected to the valve
body ports by ferrules and fittings provided with the instrument.
All general purpose valve bodies include mechanical stops in their index lips. The stops limit rotor rotation (i.e., 60 degrees,90 degrees), so the correct flow path results when the index pin is close to or
against either stop of the index lip.
SVC 7- 9
CAUTION
Any intermediate position of the rotor may result in an interrupted flow path which
could cause damage to the valve or other components in the chromatograph.
The letter of the rotor type stamped into the valve body indicates the rotor installed in the particular
body.
P
Polytetrafluorethylene (Teflon rotor) may be used from 0 to 175 degrees C. (This low temperature valve may be unmarked - no”P”).
PT High Temperature (polyimide rotor) may be used from 100 to 300 degrees C. (This “high temperature”valve may be marked with “PT”, or just “T”).
The rotor seat of the valve body is a highly polished conical surface. This finish precludes adsorption of
most GC samples. Additionally, with a properly seated rotor the polished surface will prevent leakage
around the rotor and between non- selected ports.
The rotor assembly is essentially a one- piece stainless steel part with an integral molded and machined conical hub and several parts necessary for proper seating. The sample will contact either Teflon (low temperature) or polyimide (high temperature) as well as the stainless steel of the valve.
The rotor fits precisely into the body and nests in the conical seat. It is held in place by a preloaded
assembly.
The grooves in the rotor determine the paths between specific ports and run in a transverse fashion
across the rotor. The index pin prevents rotation beyond either stop of the index lip. Valve ports are
connected by the grooves only when the index pin is close to or against either stop of the index lip.
Any intermediate position results in shutoff of flow through the valve and possible valve damage if left in
this position.
General Purpose Valves (GPVs)
The standard general purpose valves have 1/16- inch zero dead- volume fittings. They may be classified by the number of ports they contain and their useful temperature range. The valves with Teflon rotors may be used in the range 0 to 175 degrees C; whereas, the valves with polyimide rotors function
best in the range of 100 to 300 degrees C. Both types of valves are available with 6 or 10 ports, depending on the desired application.
Teflon rotors are not interchangeable with polyimide rotors in the same valve body. Because of the difference in the operating temperature ranges, do not mix these two valve types in the same system.
CAUTION
The life of any valve is shortened, if not used within its specified temperature range
Temperature Ranges for Liquid Sample Valves
1/16inch Teflon rotor valves...............0to 175 degrees C
1/16inch polyimide rotor valves..........100to 300 degrees C
Adjustable restrictor valves.........ambientto 175 degrees C
The HP 5890 was designed to accept valves heated in their own compartments because valves operate
best at a constant temperature. It is important to realize that, when a valve is inside a gas chromatoSVC 7- 10
graph oven during a temperature- programmed run, the valve temperature can lag behind the programmed oven temperature by as much as 20 degrees depending on the rate employed. The mass of
the programmed valve is responsible for this lag. For this and other reasons, gas chromatograph
oven- mounted valves are not offered on the HP 5890.
An actual 6- port valve viewed from the actuator side is illustrated in Figure 2- 4. A functional two- dimensional diagram representing the same valve is shown in Figure 2- 5.
Note that with this type of diagram, not only the external ports are drawn, but rotor grooves are easy to
see. The transverse grooves appear as curved lines. Note the change in the port- to- port connections by the grooves when the valve rotor is moved from the left stop to the right stop. Also note that
the rotor grooves move, but the ports do not. Figure 2- 6 Illustrates a Simplified Valve Diagram.
Note that the essential valve features are not lost; namely the index pin, stops, ports, and grooves. This
is the type of diagram that will be used throughout this section. The 6- port, and 10- port valves and
the LSVs function in the same basic manner but with different port locations and rotor grooves.
Some other symbols used in the plumbing configuration diagrams are shown in Figure 2- 7.
Adjustable Restrictor
This restrictor is not designed for temperatures greater than 175 degrees C; for this reason this adjustable restrictor is NOT compatible with high- temperature valves.

A 1.0cc sample loop is included with all valve systems configured for gas sampling. 10.0cc and 5.0cc
loops occupy one valve position, limiting the number of valves that can be housed in a valve compartment.
Six- port General Purpose Configurations
Liquid sampling valves are designed for use with liquefied gases under pressure such as ethane, propane, butane, LNG, etc. They are not intended for use with nonvolatile liquids (at room conditions)
where a concealed leak may allow an accumulation or pool of liquid to form that may present a significant fire hazard.
TO REDUCE THE POSSIBILITY OF FIRE HAZARD WHEN SAMPLING FLAMMABLE
GASES OR LIQUID UNDER PRESSURE, THE OPERATOR SHOULD ROUTINELY
MAKE A CAREFUL PRESSURE- LEAK TEST OF THE PLUMBING, FITTING AND
VALVES COMPRISING THE SAMPLING SYSTEM IN OPERATION. BOTH VALVE
POSITIONS SHOULD BE CHECKED. THEREFORE DEPENDING UPON THE NATURE
AND PRESSURE OF THE SAMPLING STREAM, PERIODIC PRESSURE LEAK TEST
AND VISUAL INSPECTION SHOULD BE MADE AS WEAR OR USE COULD CAUSE
LEAKS TO DEVELOP. THESE LEAKS MAY OCCUR IN THE INTERIOR OF THE VALVE
BOX AND BE CONCEALED FROM THE OPERATORS VIEW.
All standard liquid sample valves have 1/16inch fittings and are classified by the sample size of the installed rotor (0.2µl, 0.5µl or 1.0µl capacity). The two types of valves available are standard or low pressure (1000 psig) and high pressure (5000 psig), in the four- port, single- purpose liquid sampling valve.
SVC 7- 11
Whenever a liquid sample valve is used, an adjustable restrictor is employed on the sample outlet line
to maintain internal sample pressure and thereby keep a compressed gas liquefied.
THE LIFE OF AN LSV IS SHORTENED IF NOT USED WITHIN ITS SPECIFIED
PRESSURE AND TEMPERATURE RANGES. HIGHLY DANGEROUS LEAKS CAN
OCCUR IF THE VALVE BOX TEMPERATURE EVER EXCEEDS THE LIMITS LISTED IN
TABLES 2- 4 AND 2- 5.

Troubleshooting and Maintenance
Chromatographic Symptoms
Troubleshooting valves and their related plumbing is primarily a matter of systematic checking and verification of unimpaired mechanical operation of any moving part. This requires an understanding of how
the valve functions internally and how the plumbing is configured. A plumbing diagram is essential for
effective troubleshooting.
The following “symptom- cause”list gives the most commonly encountered problems found with valves
and their solution.
Loss of Sensitivity or Excessive Drift
Several possible causes exist for overall deterioration of the chromatogram.
D
Contamination in the valve requires a thorough cleaning.
D
Internal leakage necessitates a complete disassembly and inspection of the mating surfaces.
D
Poor temperature control may require a full check of electronic and thermal components.
D
Lack of proper conditioning techniques, columns, etc.
D
Failure or deterioration of other components (i.e., columns, detectors, etc.).
Loss of Peaks in Specific Areas of the Chromatogram
Entire sections of chromatographic data can be lost due to a valve that does not rotate or one that rotates improperly. Other than obvious component failures (i.e., solenoid, actuator, etc.), generally improper adjustments and misalignments cause most problems.
D
Check that adequate air (about 482 kPa or 70 psi) is supplied.
D
Check the valve. Is it rotating?
D
If the valve rotates, check for proper alignment of the actuator, mechanical binding or slippage
of connecting parts.
D
Check for blocked flow paths with valve in both positions.
Baseline Upsets
Frequently baseline upsets may be seen on chromatograms when valves are switched. These upsets
are normally caused by pressure changes within the system, injections of large volume samples, or by
changing the amount of restriction in the flow path. These upsets will become more of a problem when
high sensitivity is required. Addition of a fixed restriction downstream from the valve may help minimize
the upset. Changes in column length may also help reduce the upsets.
Fixed restrictors are used immediately before flame detectors to prevent flameout and are used in some
instances to prevent pressure surges from damaging TCD filaments. An adjustable restrictor (needle
valve) can also be used where a matched restriction is desired but not for preventing pressure or flow
surges.
SVC 7- 13
Often confused with baseline upsets, an offset is a shift in the baseline that does not return quickly to
the original level. Baseline offsets may be caused by air leaks but more commonly are due to a change
in gas purity or flow rate in the detector. Poor carrier gas or improperly conditioned filters and traps
should be suspected whenever offsets occur.
Extraneous Peaks
Air peaks are sometimes seen in a chromatogram when leakage occurs because the valve rotor does
not seal properly. These leaks may not be detectable by using the soap- bubble method.
If a leak is suspected but cannot be located with soap bubbles, a pressure check will determine definitely if a leak exists. Extraneous peaks can occur sometimes due to contamination or improper conditioning of the valve. If leaks are not apparent, clean or condition the valve.
Obviously other causes, totally unrelated to the valve, may exhibit similar symptoms. Impure carrier gas
(i.e., containing water) can cause extraneous peaks.
Locating Leaks
Leak- checking the plumbing involved in a valve configured system must be done carefully and methodically. Several methods may be used, and the best choice will depend upon expediency, accessibility, and the magnitude of the leak.
Pressure Check
The pressure check method will indicate, but sometimes not isolate, a leak in the flow path. Since this
method does not necessarily isolate the leak, other leak check methods may be needed to locate the
leak specifically.
Note
Each valve in a system has two flow paths, ON and OFF. A leak sometimes occurs in
only one of these two positions. Check both.
1. Disconnect the detector from the valve system.
2. Cap the valve system at its outlet and pressurize to 689 kPa (100 psi). Allow 2 to 5 minutes for
pressure to equilibrate. If a flow sensor exists, it should read zero flow.
3. Turn the knob on the regulator counterclockwise until it turns freely. The regulator is now
turned off and the gauge is indicating pressure within the valve system.
4. Generally, the pressure will drop quickly for approximately 30- 60 seconds; then stabilize. After
this initial drop, the gauge should not indicate more than a 6.89 to 13.78 kPa (1 to 2 psi) drop
during a 10 minute period
5. If no leak is indicated, actuate all valves and repeat steps 2 through 4.
6. If a leak does show up, try to pinpoint the source using a soap bubble meter. Do not assume
that the leak exists only at the valve. Often plumbing connections such as unions or bulkhead
fittings are at fault. See “Valve Box Top Assembly Removal”in this section should it become
necessary to expose the valve system.
7. If the leak cannot be found easily, divide the system in half and repeat the pressure check.
Continue dividing by halves, and pressure check until the leak is isolated.
SVC 7- 14
Valve Box Assembly Removal
1. Place the main power switch in the off position.
HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES ARE PRESENT IN THE INSTRUMENT WHEN THE POWER
CORD IS CONNECTED. AVOID A POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS SHOCK HAZARD BY
DISCONNECTING THE POWER CORD BEFORE WORKING ON THE INSTRUMENT.
2. Unplug the line power cord from its receptacle.
3. Allow some time for the oven and heated zones to cool.
4. When the oven has cooled, turn off all gas supplies.
5. Switch the solenoid valve off so the actuator is in its fully extended position (Figure 2- 29).
Place the main power switch in its “OFF”position. Disconnect the line power cord from its receptacle.
6. Remove the back panel and allow sufficient time for the oven and heated zones to cool; then
turn off supply gases and the air supply to the solenoids at their sources.
7. If variable restrictors are present, remove their mounting hardware in the following order: two
M4 screws, hex nut, and mounting bracket for each restrictor valve.
8. Remove two, valve box top assembly, mounting screws, one located near the left front corner
and one along the right side edge near the middle. Lift the valve box top assembly straight off
the valve box. Be careful not to move the valve rotor index pin from its “at rest”position.
NOTE
If valve/actuator alignment is to be made, see “Valve/Actuator Alignment”in this
section, but do not perform steps 9 through 11.
9. To reassemble: Align the two mounting holes in the valve box top assembly with the standoffs in
the valve box. Lower the box top assembly until it rests on the standoffs.
10. Secure the valve box top assembly with two M4 mounting screws. Tighten these screws firmly.
Reinstall hardware for variable restrictors if present.
11. Exercise the valve(s) on and off a few times to verify operation.
SVC 7- 15
Valve Actuator Alignment
1. Remove the valve box top assembly. See steps 1 through 3 “Valve Box Top Assembly Removal.”
2. Loosen the actuator link arm lock screw at each actuator (Figure 2- 29) with a 3mm hex key
wrench so that the coupling/shaft assembly is free to rotate. Push the coupling shaft fully into
the actuator.
3. Turn the valve rotor index pin of each valve counterclockwise (CCW) until it is 0.010 inch (0.25
mm) from the counterclockwise (left- hand) valve stop (Figure 2- 31).
4. Set the valve box top assembly on the lower assembly and secure it with the two screws removed in step 1 above. To do this, simply place the valve box top assembly on the two diagonally opposite rectangular standoffs in the lower valve box assembly and install the screws.
(The quick release pin should be installed in the 90 degree position for the 6 port valves and in
the 60 degree position for the 10- port valves.)
5. Gently rotate and push the coupling/shaft assembly with a blade- type screwdriver until the slot
on the coupling fully engages the valve rotor index pin . Repeat this procedure for each valve
installed.
6. Make sure that all solenoid valves are turned “off”by the appropriate valve controller. Turn on
the air supply to the solenoid valve(s). The piston rod of each actuator will move all the way out
to the extended (OFF) position. Very firmly tighten the link arm lock screw for each actuator.
CAUTION
Use care in performing the above operation so as not to accidentally turn the valve
rotor away from its preset (step 2) position.
7. Install the hardware for any variable restrictors present.
SVC 7- 16
Valve Actuation of GC- Controlled Valves
(Operation of one or two 120- volt solenoid valves)
Activation of up to two valve solenoids (designated as Purge A or Purge B) may occur in either of two
ways. The operator may switch the valves manually whenever it is desirable via keyboard entry, or
more conveniently, the valves can be switched ON once and OFF once during a run via the HP 5890’
s
timed events table.
NOTE
If the valve is already in the position where a command instructs it to switch, no action
will occur.
The designated channels (A or B) are determined solely by the wiring connections to the valve box.

KEYBOARD AND DISPLAY REPLACEMENT
The keyboard and display components of the HP 5890 Series II are housed in a single display PCB assembly. Removal, disassembly. and installation instructions for the display PCB assembly are found on
the following pages. Refer to page XX of this section for information on troubleshooting the keyboard
and display components. Refer to Section 9 of the IPB for part numbers associated with the keyboard
and display components.
Current maintenance philosophy suggests that the display PCB assembly be replaced as a unit, rather
then replacing the display PCB, keyboard connector element, etc. individually. Maintenance procedures have been included to allow for the disassembly of the display PCB assembly in the event that
the shroud assembly is not available in a timely manner, etc.

DATA COMMUNICATIONS
COMMUNICATION INTERFACE COMPONENTS
There are five possible data communication options which may be encountered in instruments found in
the field. The five options are Non- Buffered INET, Buffered INET, RS- 232- C, HPIB/RS- 232- C
(DICE), and analog input. Communications Interface PCBs are optional and may not be installed in all
instruments.
Specific part numbers are not given in this section. For replacement part numbers, refer to the Section
9 of the IPB (Electronics).
This document is not meant to provide instruction for first time installation of any of the options discussed. The add- on sheets, which accompany the various options, exist for just this purpose, and
should be referenced when performing a first time installation.

INET CONFIGURATION
(“CALIB AND TEST”function 3)
The CONFIGURE NETWORK function provides four features: verifying the
INET address for the HP 5890A (as determined through automatic loop
configuration), setting the default HP-IL address to be used when the
HP 5890A is connected to some device where addresses must be set
manually (i.e., no automatic loop configuration), switching the INET
function at the HP 5890A between “global”or “local,”and verifying INET
signal definitions. Each feature is discussed separately.

Switching Between “Global”and “Local”
With regard to the INET function at the HP 5890A, there are two
operating modes: “global”or “local.”In “global”mode (default mode),
HP 5890A START and STOP keys, when pressed, affect other devices on
the INET loop. In “local”mode, however, pressing START or STOP at
the HP 5890A affects only the HP 5890A. A run may be started or stopped
at the HP 5890A without affecting other devices on the INET loop.
In “local”mode, note that the HP 5890A remains part of the INET
system; it reports its “readiness”to the system and pressing “START”and
SVC 10- 8
“STOP”keys on other devices on the INET loop (e.g., the controller) will
affect HP 5890A operation.
Once in “CONFIGURE NETWORK,”pressing ON or OFF switches,
respectively, between “global”or “local”mode shows resulting displays as
in Figure 13-5.

Figure 13-5. INET ”GLOBAL/LOCAL“ Displays
An example of where having the HP 5890A in “local”mode might be
useful is in the case of conditioning a column: the HP 5890A may be
started or stopped as desired without affecting other devices on the INET
loop.
Note that “global”mode has two states: if GLOBAL flashes (default mode)
when displayed, the HP 5890A is in “global”mode, but NOT configured
into the INET system. When the HP 5890A is properly configured into the
INET system, GLOBAL is displayed continuously. This feature provides a
convenient diagnostic to determine if system configuration has occurred
(at least as far as the HP 5890A is concerned).
INET/HP-IL Addresses
Figure 13-6 shows displays occurring either in verifying an INET address
set through automatic loop configuration or in entering a specific HP-IL
default address used when the HP 5890A is included in an HP-IL loop
without automatic configuration. The address is maintained in batteryprotected memory along with other instrument setpoints.

VERIFYING THE HP 5890 Series II INET ADDRESS
In Figure 13-6, note the two numeric values following “ADDR:”. The first
of these numbers is the INET address for the HP 5890A, determined via
automatic loop configuration.
The SPECIFIC number shown depends upon how INET cables are
connected among devices included in the loop. The value shown in the
example (“1”) implies the HP 5890A is the first instrument on the loop,
starting from the “OUT”receptacle on the controller device (the controller
is always defined as “0”). A “2”indicates the HP 5890A is the second
device on the loop, etc., to a maximum value of “31”.
If cabling is altered, or if one or more devices are powered off and then on
again, automatic loop configuration, initiated by the controller, updates
the displayed value accordingly.
SETTING THE DEFAULT HP-IL ADDRESS
Remaining displays in Figure 13-6 show the process of defining a specific
HP-IL address for the HP 5890A. Entry of any value from “0”through
“31”is permitted. An attempt to enter an invalid value results in the
“ADDRESS LIMIT”message shown.

Figure 13-7. INET Signal Definition Displays
From the displays, the following may be noted:
H HP 5890A signal channels are designated SIG 1 or SIG 2.
H ON indicates the given signal channel is considered active by the
controller; data from this signal channel is transmitted to other devices
on the INET loop. Note that ON in this context has the same meaning
as “+”shown in the HP 5890A portion of the INET configuration
table in the HP 3392A work file listing.
Similarly, OFF indicates the channel is considered inactive; no data
from this signal channel is transmitted to other devices on the loop.
OFF has the same meaning here as “- ”shown in the HP 5890A
portion of the INET configuration table in the HP 3392A work file
listing.
It is important to note that ON or OFF in this context are strictly INET
definitions, defined at the system controller. They do not, for example,
bear any relationship to whether or not a given detector assigned to
the signal channel is turned on or off.
H “RANGED”versus “FULL RANGE”indicates the dynamic range for the
data to be transmitted to other devices on the loop; dynamic range for
“RANGED” data is set at the HP 5890A according to the setpoint for
RANGE 2"( )
. Dynamic range for “FULL RANGE”data is limited only
by the detector itself. The choice of the type of data to be transmitted
is set at the controller.
SVC 10- 11
HP-IL LOOPBACK TEST
(“CALIB AND TEST”function 7)
The “HPIL LOOPBACK TEST”may be performed any time to verify that
HP 5890A INET communication is performing satisfactorily. Testing
involves setting up the HP 5890A to send an INET message directly to
itself by connecting its INET output to its INET input. The following
procedure is used:
1. Disconnect INET cables at their respective INSTRUMENT NETWORK
IN and OUT receptacles on the HP 5890A (located beneath the top
right cover panel).
2. Choose either one of the cables and disconnect it at the next device on
the INET loop.
3. Connect this free cable to both IN and OUT INSTRUMENT NETWORK
receptacles on the HP 5890A.
4. Enter the following key sequence:
.
CLEAR

ENTER
Upon pressing ENTER , the test is performed: the HP 5890A both sends
and verifies a diagnostic message to itself through the connected cable.
Each press of ENTER repeats the test. Each test requires about one
second. Figure 13-8 shows displays to be expected.

The message “PASSED SELF TEST”indicates INET, at least with respect
to the HP 5890A, is performing satisfactorily. If FAILED SELF-TEST is
displayed, a bad cable may be indicated; install a different INET cable and
repeat the test. If FAILED SELF-TEST is displayed again for a second
cable, electronic problems within the HP 5890A are indicated; see Section
19, “Electronic Troubleshooting,”for more information.
NOTE
The LOOPBACK TEST may be used to check for continuity in an
INET cable; an open cable causes test failure. Verify that the cable
is at fault (rather than the HP 5890A) by testing a second cable.
If an intermittent cable problem is suspected, the test may be repeated as necessary while flexing the cable (particularly at its
plugs). An ohmmeter should also be used to test for problems; it is a
reliable method for testing continuity.

Appendix A
PCB CONNECTOR INFORMATION
This appendix contains all of the connector mnemonics used throughout the HP 5890 Series II. It is
intended to help the technician isolate problems to a specific component or components. The HP 5890
Series II may be found in many different configurations, with varying component options. This complicates the process of providing detailed troubleshooting procedures for even general problems. But, by
using the general troubleshooting techniques presented in Section 1, along with the pinouts given here,
successful results should be achieved.
