eppendorf 5810R board diagnostics

Error 6 has numerous causes, this unit was working until moved, now it's all error 6. Temp control works fine. Does anybody know if the service manual is worth the $$? I don't want to replace the freq conv bd if I can see a work around. I have several other svc manuals for eppendorf, but the tech support folks are so unhelpful, that I may just recommend replacing unit with another more servicable brand.

There is no Error 31 code for new version of 5810(R). Only old version has code 31 - x

Error 31-x

0 - Timeout closing lid

1 - Timeout opening the lid

2 - Undefined position when opening

3 - Monitoring of microswitches for lid

4 - Released lid does not open

5 - Error during lid test after power on

 

- Check the connections on the sensor board and plug X10. (Had this happen to me on one. Burnished the contacts and it worked fine after that.)

- Check for presence of voltages on the sensor board (but you need the schematics/wiring diagram.)

I've just fixed an old 5810R with V2.0 f/w that had an Error 6. It was a supply voltage problem but it was the frequency converter that was creating this error. I measured it was only getting about 12Vac to it.

I traced the problem back to the main PCB and found there are 2 power relays that switch the 240V coming in from the main connector straight out the the cable that supplies the Frequency Controller. These relays were not passing current and dropping about 100V across the contacts.

Replacing both relays fixed the problem and the centrifuge is operating normally.

The older version of the 58XX series are obsolete and no longer supported by Eppendorf.  5804, 5804R, 5810 below serial number 10,000 and 5810R below serial number 12,000.

If you have the part number you can order from their Customer Service line.  Many parts are no longer available.

What serial number do you have?  If it is the older style centrifuge with Serial number <120000.  Go to Customer program # 10, and go through the test.  This should be detailed in the operators manual.

If SN>12000 then the Service Manual indicates "Program Memory is full"

Hello!

I have an Eppendorf 5804R that is giving error 24.

The supplier recommended me to change the whole board, but I am actually looking for a more economical solution.

Anyone can help me on that error?

Thank you

 

We are having same problems and Eppendorf says that 5810R is NOT repairable if there are problems with circuit board. Do you know of any way to buy a new or used circuit board?

 

We recently received a main PCB direct to replace a faulty board. I'm suprised its no longer supported.
