Harris DX-50 raise and lower problem

Post by carlos1357 » Mon Jun 10, 2019 12:54 pm

Hi,

I can't change the power with Raise and lower controls, did anyone ever had the same problem ?

Thanks !
Carlos

Is APC enabled? Can it be toggled on/off?

Can you adjust power by the remote control terminals? As I recall the DX series, the remote terminals are different inputs to the master controller.

You may want to try carefully pushing the ribbon cables on the rear of the front panel circuit board. Over time, those cables are prone to become intermittent as the teeth that bite into each individual conductor back out.

Thanks, I didn't prove it, we don`t use remote control to set the power. On/off is OK
