Product Description
1.a System Overview
The proLYTE analyzer is designed to make service and repair quick and easy. Modular construction is used throughout the design. The basic operating system consists of a motor which drives the peristaltic pump. The peristaltic pump draws the desired fluid through the system. A second motor drives the sample probe through the solutions valve to aspirate the appropriate fluid for pumping: sample; standards; or air. The sample detector in the fluid path communicates the position of the fluid in the line. Please note that mechanical and electrical assemblies can be replaced. Follow the instructions in the TROUBLESHOOTING SECTION to determine if assembly replacement is necessary. Refer to the Replacement List in this section which lists replaceable assemblies, components, and appropriate part numbers.

DC Power Verification
1. Remove the rear housing. See Rear Housing Removal in the REPAIR SECTION for details. 2. Connect the power cord first to an outlet, then to the entry module. 3. Connect the reference side of the voltage meter to TP12 on the CPU board. 4. Verify the voltage at each test point listed below.

Test Point TP1 TP2 TP3 TP10 TP11

Value 5.00 V 36.0 V 5.00 V 2.50 V -5.00 V

Tolerance +/- 0.15 V +/- 2.0 V +/- 0.15 V +/- 0.10 V +/- 0.15 V

5. If any of the voltage values in STEP 4 are not within specification, AND the AC power verification is successful, replace the CPU board.

2.d

Display Verification
1. Disconnect the display cable from the CPU board. See Display Assembly Removal in the REPAIR SECTION for details. 2. Connect a known good display assembly to the CPU board and connect the main power cord. Verify that the test display is operative. Based on the test results, take the appropriate corrective action. -Display Blank and/or YES/NO buttons DO NOT operate: Remove the test display cable. Perform AC and DC power verification. If the AC and DC power tests are successful, replace the CPU board with a new CPU board, and return to normal operation. See CPU Board Removal in the REPAIR SECTION for details. -Display On and YES/NO buttons function: Remove the original display assembly and replace with a new display assembly. See Display Assembly in the REPAIR SECTION for details.

Probe Motor Verification


1. Disconnect the power cord, wait ten seconds, then reinstall the power. The probe arm should move down and back up. If there are no error messages, resume normal operation. If a PRB error occurs, proceed to STEP 2. 2. Remove the sample probe from the probe arm. For details refer to proLYTE Operators Manual. Remove and reinstall the power cord. The probe arm should move down and back up. If there are no error messages examine and if necessary replace the sample probe, solutions valve and/or probe wiper. If a PRB error occurs, proceed to STEP 3. 3. If the probe arm does not move at all perform the following operations. A. Visually inspect that the actuator and retaining ring are correctly installed on the probe motor lead screw. If the installation is incorrect, refer to CPU Board Removal and Probe Motor Installation in the REPAIR SECTION for details. B. Check that the probe motor wires are completely seated inside the 4-pin connector as follows: Remove the probe motor connector from the bottom left of the CPU Board (position P3). Compress the strain-relief cap against the probe motor connector to firmly seat the wires. Reinstall the probe motor connector into the CPU Board.

C. Repeat STEP 1. If no errors occur, resume normal operation. 4. If the probe arm moves and stops anywhere except the top position, or if the probe arm vibrates against the top of the proLYTE housing, replace the probe position sensor. To replace the sensor, first remove the CPU Board and the probe position locator. Refer to Probe Motor Assembly Removal in the REPAIR SECTION for details. 5. If the probe does not move at all, check for a short circuit on the CPU Board between TP12 and TP2. If there is a short circuit, replace the Stepper driver daughter board at positions U35 and U36. See Front and Rear Assembly Components in the Product Description Section. 6. If no short circuit is found, replace the probe motor assembly. Refer to the Probe Motor Assembly in the REPAIR SECTION for details.

Printer Verification
Press the printer paper advance button. If the printer head moves proceed to STEP 2. If the printer head does not move, proceed to STEP 3. Verify that the printer is on. Turn the printer on by pressing NO to the PRINTER OFF? question in the USER OPTIONS section. If the printer is still not working, remove the power cord from the analyzer and wait for ten seconds, then install the power cord back into the entry module. The printer head should move across the paper and the paper should advance forward printing proLYTE. If the printer is still not working, remove the printer cover and check for any paper obstruction in the printer head area. Remove any obstructions if possible, without damaging the printer assembly or printer window. If an obstruction is present and cannot be removed, replace the Printer Assembly. Refer to Printer Removal and Installation in the REPAIR SECTION for details. If there are no obstructions, but the printer does not work, perform the following steps. a. b. c. d. 6. Remove the rear housing as detailed in the REPAIR SECTION. Remove the printer cable at the bottom right of the CPU board. Compress the strain-relief cap to firmly seat the printer cable. Reinstall the printer cable into the CPU Board.

Sample Detector Verification


1. Remove the electrode housing from the analyzer. See the proLYTE Operators Manual for further details. 2. Remove the sample detector from the front housing. 3. Install the sample detector into the sample detector receptacle. Do not install the electrode housing or pump tubing at this time. 4. Proceed to the DIAGNOSTICS? menu and perform the SAMPLE DETECTOR TEST?. -With the sample detector installed, the value on the display screen should be less than 200. -With the test in progress, remove the sample detector. The display should rapidly change to 255. If the sample detector test meets these specifications, resume normal operation. A value of 255 with the sample detector installed indicates a bad connection. Proceed to STEP5 to check the sample detector circuit. 5. Reinstall the sample detector. Look at the left side of the sample detector. A red light must shine from the LED hole. If there is no red light, install a known good sample detector. If there is still no red light, replace the Display Assembly. Refer to the REPAIR SECTION for information. 6. If the TEST sample detector red light is on, check the four connecting pins on the ORIGINAL sample detector. The pins must face straight out forming a rectangle. If the pins are bent against the black plastic body, straighten the pins using a small flat head screwdriver. 7. Reinstall the original sample detector and repeat STEP 4. -If the red light comes ON: Reassemble the proLYTE and perform a SOLUTIONS PRIME and a SAMPLE DET. TEST. Resume normal operation. -If the red light remains OFF: Install a new sample detector.
