Collimator/Iris/Filament cal. error
The two thing these three sub-systems have in common is the cable from the c-arm base to the tub/collimator and the CCD TV camera head; and the hard drive.
You can get the service manual Supplement from the GE website. It's only 3.9MB. Send me an email and I can get that and some other stuff to you. firstname.lastname@example.org
The supplement manual recommends re-loading or creating new cal files. Strange that all three are acting up.
It sounds like the Generator has lost all of it's cal files. This could be caused by a dead battery on the GIB or a defective GIB altogether. Please call us at Rad Rays Llc for some free tech support 410-737-4404.
I was able to solve my issue. First was trying to connect to archnet with a serial. I was never able to get that to work but was able to using a crossover Cat5 cable. The next problem was my coin battery on the Gen. Interface board was low and wiped out my calibration data. I wasn’t able to load generator settings form the system to rerun cals. After connecting to system I tried running cals with out loading system settings and could run them however it defaulted all other settings and wouldn't allow me to boot back in it asked for a password. Luckily I found a backup disk and was able to restore the generator and then run new cals.
