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.

Glad to see the question here because I have suffered this once before. Now I know how to make it. Biotech is always complicated for me. Thanks!

Awesome! Thanks a lot for that Service Manual. It just helped us to get a centrifuge running again after an "Error 2" after we had to remove a lot of rust and dirt out of an old centrifuge!

Adjusting the imbalance-sensor still is a huge pain! :)

 

best, Marco

Dear Alexan. Your error is related to imbalance sensor. Check the brown-yellow-green-white ribbon cable connections at the board. You can take it out and in, clean the pins. If not solved do the following: with the centrifuge lid open push both arrow keys, display will change. press up until you see as first digit "6:".  You should have a value of 670 +/- 100 there. If you move the rotor axis this value should change. If the value displayed is out of range, the imbalance sensor should be readjusted.

please check this and post your results in order to help you further.

Hi 

My centrifuge 5804 R  showing error 2. The only way to run the centrifuge is to run instantly after closing the lid. otherwise, after 2-3 seconds of closing the door the error 2 comes and not allow to start centriguge.

Is there a way to reset error 2?

Thanks

Alex

jjj, would you mind posting the service manual for the older 5810R? We are currently servicing a unit showing Error 6, and would find the manual very helpful!

Just to give you a trick, i had to replace a part and the metal base was driving me nuts. I drilled two holes right behind the connectors and resoldered the part. Worked fine and i dont think there is any other way.
