  • PSX-C odd "program 8" issue

    Hi everyone,

    I forgot to look and see which version thoughtware we have, and I can get that if you need it, but anyway I'm having an odd problem. Our PXS-C has 7 program slots. Maybe once a week, when I go into the oil volume test, it says PROGRAM 8. You can use the arrows to scroll all the way up to 99, and if you select one of these, it will run an oil program (program 49, for instance, puts out approximately 17mL of oil). However, if you exit out of the test screen and MENU through til you get back to it again, it will come up with PROGRAM 7, and you're able to select between programs 1-7.

    On its own, this isn't a problem. I never use this feature anyway, I always use the second option, volume per board test. When you go to override the program, I can't ever go above 7. All I know is there are programs 8-99 in the test menu, and they Is this indicative of another problem that needs attention, or should I look away, plug my ears, and go "lalalalalala". Our budget dictates I do the second thing.

    I was told that 8 was the volume test, never seen any higher than 8.

      Huh, I didn't know that. I can't find anything in the manual about it.

        I have a Sanction Standard that does the same thing from time to time I havent had any problems with it so I am under the assumption that it is nothing to worry about
        It only took two years and two new owners to finally be allowed to come in and work on lanes before we open........

          Okay. Well, I was just making sure that this wasn't some kind of red flag indicating a bigger problem. The machine still appears to operate normally, so I guess it's just one of those things you just kind of say "Huh... well that's weird. Whatever", and go on with your business. Works for me!
