Tech Note 580 Detail

GLX functions when used with the GLX simulator, but nothing appears on the screen.

Affected Products:

PS-2002 Xplorer GLX

Problem/Symptom:
GLX functions when used with the GLX simulator, but nothing appears on the screen.

PASCO Solution:

Some early GLXs had a problem with diode connected to the screen on the Xplorer overheating and becoming conductive. This condition reduced the contrast on the screen to the point that it could not be viewed.

As a temporary workaround, one can view the screen of the Xplorer GLX by turning off the unit for several minutes to allow the screen diode to cool.

Please contact Technical Support to return the unit for repair.
