Rigol 1052E 50Mhz to 100Mhz doesn't work

(1/10) > >>

I have the original 2.02 firmware on the Scope. I press Alt button and enter 010, Rigol or  nothing else appears on the Hyper Terminal screen.
Could someone be real specific as the exact cable I should be using. I was using a Serial Cable 9 pin male to 9 pin male (from desktop to Scope).  I did not try to go from my laptop to the Scope as the laptop uses a 15 pin female.

Please help me.

All help will be very much appreciated.

Sincerely,

As I said in the video it is a straight through cable. You might have a cross-over "null-modem" cable.

Dave,

You are my hero, I watch your Videos regularly.  Could you please offer me a little more help.

Check pins 2 and 3 with a multimeter.

On a null modem cable, pin 2 on plug A will be connected to pin 3 on plug B and vice versa.

On a straight cable, pin 2 on plug A will go to pin 2 on plug B.

Hello,

It is definitely a Straight Thru cable.(It even says so on the packaging).  9 female on each end.  One end goes to my Desktop PC and the other to the Rigol Scope.

I hope this helps.
