CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION
SECTION 1
MAINTENANCE TOOLS
11

Mammocom
Diagnostic assistance is provided by many maintenance tests, accessible from a service
terminal connected to generator interface board 400PL2, and using communication software
known as Mammocom. The use of this software is described in Chapter 2.
The diagnostic tests are accessed through a set of menus, called up on the screen of the service
terminal as required. These menus are linked in a tree structure. Refer to Illustrations 11 to
14 for an overview of this structure. Illustrations 11 and 12 refer to Generator
maintenance; Illustrations 13 and 14 refer to Gantry maintenance.

12

Module Disassembly/Reassembly
A set of job cards giving instructions for module disassembly/reassembly is provided in
Chapter 3.

13

Error codes
Error codes are given on the DMR console when the system detects any anomaly in operation.
Chapter 4 describes and lists these codes (in their technical code format). For each code it
gives the meaning and, where relevant, recommends which of the Troubleshooting guides
(Chapter 5) should be consulted first to trace the error.

14

Troubleshooting Guides
A set of Troubleshooting Guides (TSG) is provided in Chapter 5. These give recommended
procedures for tracing and correcting faults.

15

Block Diagrams
Block Diagrams for the various parts of the system are provided in Chapter 6.

SECTION 2
DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE
21

Power-up problems
The full DMR power-up is defined as being the status corresponding to the correct generation
of two signals :
   
 and INV_SUPPLY_OK, i.e:
D

Level 1 on TP27 on board 400PL2 (


   
 and.

Level 1 on TP25 on board 400PL2 (   


 (see Diagram 1 in A2).

The service terminal cannot be used for diagnostic assistance until the Senographe DMR is in
the state defined above.
The various stages of the power-up are shown (along the time axis) in the diagram on
page 3/11 of TSG01.
22

Problems generating error messages

221 Function of self-test


For most of the tests concerning the generator, the test line is in either the active or
inactive state. The next line, Self-test, is in either the Yes or No state.
1. Configuration 
 
If the responses received by the CPU are not as expected, the CPU board immediately
cancels all commands passed to the hardware, even if the user maintains the test
command (1st or 2nd).
2. Configuration 
 

The CPU maintains the commands passed to the hardware for as long as the test is still
activated by the user, even if the responses received by the CPU are not as expected. This
enables significant values to be measured on the hardware.
222 Screen facilities
For the HT function, hardware values can be measured using two sub-tests : The SCR gate
drive test and short circuit inverter test.
Other screens display the static status of certain signals (TSG 016 and TSG 019).
23

CPU board and interface problems


Boards concerned :
D

Generator :

400PL3 and 400PL2,

Gantry :

800PL3 and 800PL2.

When a Trouble Shooting Guide is used to identify and replace defective boards, the resulting
replacement will very rarely concern the two CPU boards. This is due to the simple fact that, if
the system is generating error codes and activating various tests, then the CPU boards are
probably serviceable.

12

GE Medical Systems

Senographe DMR +
asm 2252561-100

231 CPU board diagnostic


The two CPU boards (400PL3 and 800PL3) execute, independently, identical internal tests, at
each system power-up. When the ON button is pressed, there is a delay of around 2.5s before
LED DS1 TEST OK lights up and remains on, if the internal test results are correct.
If LED DS1 does not light up, replace the CPU boards (the two CPU boards only use the +5V).
Note:

The internal tests do not check bus G64.

232 Error codes generated by Generator CPU board 400PL3 and Generator Interface board 400PL2 together
After the internal tests mentioned above have been successfully executed, Generator CPU
board 400PL3 runs the INTERFACE GENE test. An incorrect result for this test generates
error codes between 004/001 and 004/018 and, if this is the case, it is recommended that the
Generator CPU board 400PL3 and the Interface board 400PL2 both be changed.
233 Error codes generated by Gantry CPU board 800PL3 and Gantry Interface board 800PL2 together
Gantry CPU board 800PL3 runs a test similar to that mentioned in 2-3-2, above. An incorrect
result for this test generates error codes between 101/001 and 101/008 and, if this is the case, it
is recommended that the Gantry CPU board 800PL3 and the Interface board 800PL2 both be
changed.
Note:

Error codes between 101/001 and 101/008 cannot be displayed if the serial line (two
optical fiber cables) is not operating, between the two CPUs.
The internal tests mentioned in 2-3-1, above, test all the serial links by looping back to the
CPUs. However, this looping back does not include the optical link circuits on interface
boards 400PL2 and 800PL2.

SECTION 3
USE OF THE BLOCK DIAGRAMS
On a test screen, when a software command line or a status line passes through an interface
board (400PL2 or 800PL2), the hardware point is shown, next to the bus data, on the
corresponding block diagram. The TSGs also give the logic level relationships. To locate
corresponding signals on the block diagrams and the drawings, the signals shown on the block
diagram must be found in the alphabetically sorted list given in the s.m. The FROM and
TO columns specify the drawing pages to be consulted.
SECTION 4
SENOGRAPHE DRAWINGS
The Senographe drawings were produced using MENTOR software, which also draws the
printed circuit layouts. Thus, the drawings contain quite a lot of information not required by
the maintenance function. For example, in the 400PL1 drawing, pages 5, 7, 12, 16, 21 and 26
are of no use whatsoever to maintenance.
The rule is that points at the same electrical equipotential must be given strictly identical
names. A signal which is inverted twice must not be given its initial name as it is no longer the
same electrical point.
The
sign used in the drawings indicates that one electrical point has two different
name, and DOES NOT correspond to a physical strap.

The cursor appears in the top lefthand corner of the screen.


A VT200 terminal displays 24 lines of 80 characters. The PC has a screen of 25 lines. Line
25 displays a prompt message for the main access functions to the Senographe:
D

F10:
This key is used to connect to the Senographe DMR and Senographe 600T Senix HF (the
communications parameters should be modified for the latter).

Note:

Connection to the Senographe DMR can be made via this software only, as no other
terminal emulator is recognized by the Senographe.
D

CTRLD:
Used to disconnect the two Senographe units.

AltM:
Used to return to the Main Menu of the MAMMOCOM software without breaking the
connection. This means that a later selection of the terminal emulator returns the screen
displayed before AltM was hit, and dialog with the Senographe can take up where it left
off. This function is necessary to return to the Help Menus or to transfer files.

The seven PC keys, F1 thru F6 and F9, simulate the seven keys surrounding the DMR console
readouts and give access to all the menus (Medical, Installation, and Maintenance).

asm 2252561-100

Connection Hardware
The PC/Senographe connection is made via an RS232 serial connection supported by a DB9
connector installed on the Generator Interface Board located in the Generator Cabinet.
Communications Protocol
This is a character protocol which involves the transmission of ASCII characters in full duplex
with data flow control (XON/OFF Protocol).
The default parameters are:
D

Baud rate: 9600

comport: Com 1

Parity: Even

Length: 07

Stop bits: 01

These parameters correspond to the connection with the Senographe DMR, but they can be
modified for the connection with another machine (eg: 1200 bauds for Senix HF).
65

Emulator Restrictions
This software is created specially to be used with the Senographe DMR and Senix HF.
Therefore, this software emulates only those functions required for such use. The result is a
compromise between the speed of the reply (loading and run time) and the level of
compatibility required.
The only function keys recognized are:
D

Function keys used by the Senographe,

Cursor keys,

Four keys: Insertion, Backspace, Prev Screen, and Next Screen.

The emulator does not recognize display commands in large characters, semigraphic, or
underlined (due to the CGA LCD boards of the PC).
Most of the cursorpositioning commands as well as publishing commands are available. The
scrolling area is programmable. The cursor position and the usual character attributes can be
stored and restored.
This softwares performance is closer to a terminal than the standard ANSI.SYS file.

SECTION 8
FILE TRANSMISSION
This menu is used to transfer DMR files to the PC, and viceversa.
Two types of file are concerned:

81

Text files in any format.

Encoded files with the Motorola Exormacs protocol.

Preparing the Transfer


The system must be in emulation to make a file transfer. The file transfer runs as follows:
1. To link up with the DMR, place the terminal in emulation, as follows: at MAMMOCOM
startup, select the Terminal Emulator and connect to the Senographe by pressing F10.
2. Run the menu tree structure on the DMR until the Transfer Menu is reached.
The possibilities are as follows:

Arm error codes transfer:

Arm data save:

@<5421>

Arm data load:

@<5422>

Gene error codes transfer:

Gene data save: @<0361>

Gene data load: @<0362>

Gene statistics transfer:

@<5409>

@<0314>

@<0278>

Where @<xxxxx> is the Maintenance screen Number, refer to the tree structures in
Chapter 1.
3. In emulation, line No. 25 gives the following commands:
CtrlD: Disconnect

F10: Connect

AltM: Main Menu

4. Hit <Alt><M> to access the Main Menu without disconnecting from the Senographe.
5. Select: File Transmission.

Type of Files Transferred


Two main types of file are concerned by file transfer between PC and Senographe DMR:
D

Coded files.

ASCII files.

821 Coded Files


These are binary files which observe the Motorola Exormacs format. Coded files are used to
transfer the Senographe calibration variables for backup on floppy disk. The protocol
selected ensures that the data transmitted are correct during PC to Equipment transfer.
A special menu is used to check the file transmitted by the Senographe. If the transfer has run
without error detection, it is certain that the file transferred can be reloaded on the Senographe.
The software determines the end of the transmission when it receives a special frame
described in the protocol.
In the PCtoSenographe transfer, the file type is not processed by the MAMMOCOM
software. All the characters of the file are transmitted.
822 ASCII Files
The ASCII files do not observe any format. The end of transmission is detected by reception
of CTRL_Z. Statistics and error codes are transmitted according to this format.

CHAPTER 4 ERROR CODES


SECTION 1
ERROR CODE STRUCTURE
The structure of the error messages, as displayed on the DMR console (e.g. E55 [text]
161/013), is shown below:

Error
text

bb

ccc

a : type of error

bb:
ccc:
ddd:

ddd

I : Warning without exposure inhibition


S : Warning with exposure inhibition
E : Fault with exposure inhibition
K : Fault generating power cutoff (safety)

message number
subassembly ref. (hardware or software)
number indicating origin of fault
In the above example:
E55 indicates an error concerning tube housing angulation and generating an exposure
inhibition.
161/013 indicates no reference crossing during movement.
E55 is the error code type listed in the Operator Manual. This code is easy to use and
communicate, and is considered sufficient for customer use.
161/013 is the technical code, recommended for GE internal communication.
The error code listing currently contains almost 500 codes. Around 200 of these codes
concern software errors which, by definition, should never occur.
If a software error should occur, especially if it occurs several times, please inform Service
Engineering, giving as many details as possible. If possible, provide the error codes file, on
diskette (see DR 19).
The error code listing, below, only contains codes ccc/ddd, to facilitate technical
communication. The TSG (Trouble Shooting Guide) column indicates the reference number
in the Trouble Shooting Guide (chapter 5), which should obviously be consulted first.

Note:

*** : these 3 stars indicates an explanation at the end of this chapter (section 3) for a
possible known root cause.

Where an error message refers to a signal with a French signal name, the corresponding
English language signal name is shown between parentheses.
It is also recommended that the Service Terminal be used to consult the error codes stored in
the generator CPU [screen @<310>] and the gantry CPU [screen @<5403>] (see ASM
Chapter 7 maintenance menus flowchart). This will enable any cascade error codes to be
correctly interpreted.
Angle sensor failure; rotation angle sensor frequency too high or too low

Bucky calibration errors

5.8.1

118/011: Gain error

Job Card TSG 014

3 of 6

The DMR gantry software detects a gain error if the calculated gain is < 0.25 or equals 1.00.
Using installation or maintenance menus, a warning message INVALID GAIN is displayed if:
0.25 < gain < 0.4.
The gain must be between 0.5 and 0.6 for correct operation. If the gain is too high, it can induce a 118/012
error if the offset is too far from 0.5. Incorrect gain can induce grid lines
The gain is affected by:
1. The distance between the magnet and the Hall sensor.
Fine tuning of this distance is made by adjustment of the black screw on top of the magnet mounting.
Loosen the two securing screws slightly, then adjust the black screw until the gain is in the range 0.5 to
0.6. Check the gain again after tightening the securing screws.
2. The electronic circuitry.
3. Of course, the quality of the magnet.
4. Jumper settings on the Gantry power board; refer to the Service Manual, Job Card IST 037.
5.8.2

118/010: Offset error


The DMR gantry software detects an offset error if the calculated offset is < 0.20 or > 0.8.
Using installation or maintenance menus, a Warning message: INVALID OFFSET is displayed if:
0.20 < offset < 0.35 or 0.65 < offset < 0.80.
The offset value must be as close as possible to 0.5 (5.000 E1).

1. The blade is not centered in the opto-interruptor. The LED DS2 must be OFF at both mechanical stops.
2. The magnet does not move perpendicularly respect to the Hall sensor.
3. The examination arm is tilted at " 90. This effect is produced by grid weight. The normal offset shift
is " 0.04.
For example:

0.46 (4.600 E1) with the tube tilted to the left.


0.50 (5.000 E1) with the arm vertical.
0.54 (5.400 E1) with the tube tilted to the right.

4. Fine tuning of the offset is made by moving the blade around the centered position until the offset is
0.5 +0.01 with the arm vertical.
Note:

Under some circumstances, for example after calibration, the LED may be ON at the electronic
end-of-travel position. This is normal.

This fault occurs if:

TROUBLESHOOTING

1. There is abnormal friction.


If the effort to produce movement is too high, the gain is artificially raised. An overcurrent current
detection is also possible in this case.
2. Gain too high and/or incorrect offset.
3. Defective photointerrupter F1 on 800PL10.
4. Motor cannot move: open voice coil wires; defective electronic circuitry.
5. Motor moves only in one direction: defective electronic circuitry (800PL1).
6. Abnormal motor friction: may be caused by melted voice coil wires.
7. Optical endoftravel cannot be reached before mechanical stop:
800PL10 not centered.

Motor not aligned.

A few hints about grid components

5.9.1

Hall effect sensor

Job Card TSG 014

5 of 6

Hall sensor output is +4 V (" 50 mV) without any magnetic field measured on TP1/TP2 (800PL10).
With the magnet flying above the sensor, the output varies in the range +2.0 to +6.0 volts. Perfect symmetry
around 4 volts is not mandatory, depending on magnet / sensor distance. Output levels depend on the gain
adjustment (magnet distance; refer to section 5.8.1).
Maximum positive value is obtained when grid carriage is away (far) from motor side.
5.9.2

Grid motor
Typical impedance of the voice coil is five ohms (connector J2 on 800PL10).
Longitudinal motor shaft travel must be free (no hard spots).
Note that rotating the motor shaft will destroy the voice coil.

5.9.3

Definition of gain & offset


Gain = (MAX MIN) / A
Offset = (MAX + MIN) / (2* A) with A = 65535
Example:
If MAX = 60000 and MIN = 15000
Then gain = 0.69 and Offset = 0.57

Note:

Remember the drive is made on 16 bits with a 12 (upper) bit resolution. So maximum displayed value
is hex FFF0 = 65520 decimal (6.552 E+4 in scientific notation).

Note:

Board 800PL10 and the motor are not FRU parts, because adjustment requires a special tool.
If these parts are diagnosed as faulty, a complete bucky must be ordered.

533

TROUBLESHOOTING

And also: MIN = A* (Offset (Gain/2))


MAX = A* (Offset + (Gain/2))

5.1

The console delivered with the DMR+ uses a key combination to start the auto-test. However, you may
find an older model of console which uses a switch. Entry to the auto-test for both models is described
here; they are otherwise completely compatible.
Autotest using key combination
If your console is the newer model without the switch 100 S1, you must simultaneously press a combination
of five switches to start the autotest:
First press and hold the Reset button (1) and the Centering Light button (2)
Then press and hold the three buttons Film Density decrement (3), Film Density increment (4), and
Screen/Film combination (5). The autotest starts as described below.
To stop the test, repeat the same key combination at any time after the lamp visual test.

Autotest for consoles with switch 100 S1


If your console has the switch 100 S1 (located next to connector XJ3), start the autotest as follows:
Turn OFF the Senographe DMR+.
Use small flat screwdriver to set the switch 100 S1 to its CENTER position (see Note).
Power up the DMR+.
To stop the autotest sequence, switch S1 may be returned to its normal position (LEFT) at any time. This
results in a console CPU reset and restoration of the serial link with the generator. If S1 is returned to its
normal application position during a test, the test is completed before the change in position is recognized.
This means that several seconds may be necessary before return to normal application mode.

Note:

5.3

This switch has 3 positions: LEFT, CENTER and RIGHT. LEFT is the normal application position.
CENTER is for console self-test, RIGHT is not used. If the Senographe DMR+ is powered up with
this switch in the RIGHT position, correct power-up is impossible. The console beeps at 1-second
intervals, communication with the service terminal is impossible, and the serial link with the generator
is interrupted.
Autotest sequence.
An automatic sequence of console self tests is executed in the following order:
Buzzer test (300 ms).
Internal CPU RAM test.
External CPU RAM test.
Internal CPU timer test.
Serial link loopback test.
Alphanumeric display test.
Visual test of 6 lamps inside console keys.
Electrical consumption test: all displays and lamps are lit for 5 seconds

TROUBLESHOOTING

Note:

The first five tests (to the serial link test) are followed by a message (OK or NOT OK) on the console
display.
At the end of this sequence, Operator input test is displayed on the lefthand console display; the
following tests require operator input:
Key tests: service engineer momentarily presses each key (except 1st and 2nd trigger) on the
console; the lefthand display shows the function of the key being pressed

Note:

If the console is equipped with a remote handswitch, its light centering button (but not 1st and 2nd
trigger buttons) must also be tested during the key tests.
kV and mAs knob tests: service engineer rotates each knob step by step through each of its 12
absolute positions, which are displayed on the lefthand display. The righthand display shows
relative knob positions.

5.4

Corrective action if a test is declared NOT OK.


If any test result is NOT OK, replace the console.
