Leaking in syring and tray
When I did the analysis for my sample, I observed that there is message shown in the screen saying that there is a leak in the syringe and tray. Can you tell me what I have to do to solve this problem?
In order for our LabWrench team to better assist you with finding the correct answer to your question, could you please specify the make and model of the instrument that you are referring to?
I use the ion chromotograph dionex 3000
I would need to know what exactly the error message says, but assuming it is the tray the likelihood is that the needle is not making a good seal with needle seat, or you have a blocked waste tube. An inaccurately calibrated, or damaged leak sensor might also simulate the condition previously described too.

If you have a valve located in the autosampler check to make sure its not leaking. you can also hook up a syringe to the needle feed right after the syringe pump and see if you have a good seal between the needle and the needle seat, you may need to go thru the alignment procedure. Duncan is also correct in saying you should check to make sure the main waste going out of teh autosampler is clear and that the waste out from the valve is placed in its position on the right of the autosampler right on top of the wate line.
