Vaccum cut-out
« on: February 21, 2011, 04:15:09 PM »
Last week, during placement, the vaccum on our RV4 randomly stopped working a couple of times, (sometimes just for 5 piscks or so) a bit off a cooloff or pc reset seemed to bring it back to life and the prblem has not manifested itself again since (touch wood). I'm thinking a sticky relay or dodgy connection somewhere, but not quite sure where to look. Last time it failed it was a control card swapout, but in that case it had stopped permenantly.
Any Ideas?

Thanks.......

If it helps the following day, it did something else: picked, took its image and then stopped, did nothing for about a minuite and then put up a "wait not busy" error box, followed by another I neglected to read properly about the arm. Had to manually park the arm and restart

And just how loudly should I be swearing and how tightly should my fingers be crossed? or is this a card phono just happens to sell on ebay?

Awesome, the longer I can squeeze life out of this wee bugger the better.
