PicoScope 5204 channel A not working

Postby jhoyle » Fri Oct 30, 2015 1:21 pm

Hello everyone,

I am new to the picoscope world. Just received this unit today through RS Components Italy. It appears I have no reading at all on channel A. Channel B is working fine. It may be a setup issue but I have checked all settings appear to be the same. I am testing a square wave with the function generator to calibrate the probes. Channel B working great. I dont see any reading at all for A. Not even noise. Just nothing.

Any ideas?

Hello Jonathan,

I would eliminate the scope probes if you have not done already. And contact RS Components Italy, to return scope if you still have the problem.
You could also download and try the beta version of the software-https://www.picotech.com/downloads/_lightbox/PicoScope6Beta
