When stepping on the yellow pedal, no output (sound/heat) is apparent, ruling out the foot pedal as the issue, any ideas, user or Hardware?

Covidien has issued a device correction to resolve these errors.  

As a part of the investigation into this issue, it was noted that upon insertion of a new (unused) LigaSure TM device, theValleylab TM FT10 Energy Platform running software versions 4.0.1, 4.0.2 and 4.0.3 may erroneously indicate that the LigaSureTM device was used previously. When this occurs, the energy platform will display error "E420 Usage Limit" or error "E416 Unknown Instrument," and the LigaSure TM device would not be allowed to be used. 

Upgrading the Valleylab TM FT10 Energy Platform to the newly released software version 4.0.4 will eliminate this issue.  Software will be provided by Covidien at no charge.

Errors 212 and 217 flash alternately in my device. There is no such error in the service manual. Does anyone know what this is about?

I have a problem, my force fx displays errors 212/217 alternately. There is no such error as 217 in the service manual. Does anyone know what it means? In the device in service mode, there are 10 steps, but in the service manual there are only 8 steps described. How to calibrate step 9 and 10?

I come across E-213 on Valley lab - FT10. Resetting was something I tried, but it didn't work. Please let me know if you have any success or become aware of any potential problems.
