It seems our computer is not communicating correctly with our 377XL
2 months ago the electrophoresis stopped after running for less
than one hour. I started a new run and it ran fine. I thought
we had saved too many gel fileson the harddrive, so I trashed them.
Three times last week, the laser remained on standby during a
platecheck. Also, a run stopped after less than one hour. I
again started a new run. Last night I began a run and then
checked the status. Although I selected Run and not Prerun,
the clock was counting down from one hour.
What we've done so far to try to fix the glitch:
Re-set the machine; sent the firmware image.
Restarted the computer.
Defragmented the computer
The above did not seem to solve the problem. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
