The remote signifier goes on and off in the Mode window.

Thanks for the offer Manatee Mafia.
If I can't find problem maybe I should just replace keyboard drive board?
And maybe a couple of new output posts to replace my broken one.

If I keep this unit the Operating and Service manual would come in handy.
The service manuals don't seem to exist for sale.

bbford352,

I have promised the manuals to another forum member but I intend on scanning them first. I will be uploading them for everyone to use for their repairs. I will try and get some done this weekend but if you need a certain section with schematics and/or description, let me know. I can always do that section first and add it to the finished job later.

A couple of members here have 4000A units and the first action to take is change all the tantalum caps on the power supply boards and the DC board.
Examine the board closely for any burnt resistors.

I have found since I changed all tantalums even Fail 2 disappears.

xdevs has the Power Supply board on those schematics.

Thanks Johnny 10,
I have checked all the caps with a capacitance/esr meter and found no problems but will replace them anyway.
I know it is a problem on the Darton units and had a couple go up on smoke on my 1061 multimeter and the 4200A calibrator.
I have manuals for the 4200 and have been trying to find out the presumably better specs for the 4200A over the 4200 so far without success.
Have got the info from Xdevs to peruse.
Thanks again.
