I have a 7683 autosampler on GC-MS and GC-FID instruments. They are about 15 years old. Recently, both autosamplers stopped working. Once an analysis is initiated, the carosel does its thing spinning around, the syringe mechanism lowers to the waste vial, and then it stops. It cannot seem to raise up or complete the injection. Any idea what is wrong?

These autosamplers use a sequence of flashing lights on the tower to indicate specific errors. Are any lights lit and flashing? If so what color lights and how many flashes? Also did you check the error log in the chemstation software for any messages? Dan
