Metcal: MX-H1-AV vs MX-RM3E?

<< < (5/5)

If that was to me - mine is a MX500 (same as OP)

I'm fairly certain all of the base stations detect if the tip is installed via its DC resistance. The handpiece + cartridge is very low resistance at DC. If it's saying "open error" or similar with a tip installed there must be a break in the circuit. Of course if you have an older power supply there's no display, just an indicator LED. If the symptom is simply that it doesn't get hot, that could be for other reasons (shorted heating coil in the tip, shorted handpiece etc).
