Troubleshooting

The commonly encountered failures and their solutions are listed below. When you encounter those problems, please solve them following the corresponding steps. If the problem remains still, please contact RIGOL and provide your device information (acquisition method: Utility SystemSys Info).

1. The screen still dark (no display) after power on:

(1) Check if the power is correctly connected or if the battery is correctly installed.

(2) Check if the power switch is really on.

(3) Check if the fuse is burned out. If the fuse needs to be changed, please return the instrument to the factory and the RIGOL authorized personnel will change the fuse for you.

(4) Restart the instrument after finishing the above inspections.

(5) If it still does not work correctly, please contact RIGOL.

2. The signal is sampled but no waveform of the signal is displayed:

(1) Check if the probe is correctly connected to the signal connecting wire.

(2) Check if the signal connecting wire is correctly connected to the BNC

(namely channel connector).

(3) Check if the probe is correctly connected to the item under test.

(4) Check if there are signals generated from the item under test (you can connect the probe compensation signal to the problematic channel to determine which has problems, the channel or the item under test).

(5) Resample the signal.

3. The voltage tested amplitude is ten times higher or lower than the actual value:

Check whether the attenuation coefficient of the channel complies with the attenuation ratio of the probe.

4. There is waveform display but not stable:

(1) Check the trigger signal source: check whether the Source item at the front panel complies with the signal channel actually used.

(2) Check the trigger type: general signals should use “Edge” trigger and video

28 DS6000 Quick Guide

RIGOL

signal should use “Video” trigger. Only when the proper trigger type is used, can the waveform be displayed stably.

(3) Try to change the Coupling to “HF Reject” or “LF Reject” to filter out the high-frequency or low-frequency noise that disturbs the trigger.

(4) Change the trigger holdoff setting.

5. No display after pressing Run/Stop:

Check if the MODE at the trigger panel (TRIGGER) is on “Normal” or “Single” and if the trigger level exceeds the waveform range. If yes, set the trigger level to the middle or set the MODE to “Auto”.

Note that using the Auto button could automatically finish the above setting.

6. The display of waveform is ladder-like:

(1) The horizontal time base might be too low. Increase the horizontal time base to increase the horizontal resolution and improve the display.

(2) If Type is “Vectors”, the lines between the sample points may cause ladder-like display. Set Type to “Dots” to solve the problem.

7. Fail to connect PC or PictBridge through USB:

Check the IO Setting menu in UTIL to make sure whether the setting in USB

Device matches the currently connected device. If needed, restart the oscilloscope.

8. The USB flash device can not be recognized:

(1) Check if the USB flash device can work normally.

(2) Make sure that the USB device being used is flash storage type. This oscilloscope does not support hardware storage type.

(3) Make sure if the capacity of the USB flash device is too large. It is recommended that the capacity of the USB flash device being used with this oscilloscope is no larger than 4 GBytes.

(4) Restart the instrument and then insert the USB flash device to check it.

(5) If the USB flash device still can not be used normally, please contact

RIGOL.
