Lab Equipment Questions for the Experts

Waters/Fraction Collector III - Remote start
WFC3 will not start with s1 closure from 600e controller. It will start if disconnected from 600e controller and remote start wires are shorted. Have and older WFC same model and works with 600e pump controller. Tried different controller same result. Advise this member.

PerkinElmer/AAnalyst 200 - Detector saturation
I am receiving a warning after running the blank - "Detector saturation. Data may not be valid. My instrument is the AAnalyst 200. My duplicate samples which i run for copper, calcium and magnesium are showing that the calcium and magnesium are perfect but the copper is way out. I also have a permanent red glow around the cathode of the copper lamp which was purchased in December 2014. I also have another lamp from September 2013 which has the same permanent red glow. Neither the calcium or magnesium lamp are glowing. I have repeated the procedure again and the copper is miles out but the magnesium and calcium are both perfect. Could this mean that the lamp is broken? Advise this member.
