ATTENTION
LES APPAREILS À RAYONS X SONT DANGEREUX À LA FOIS POUR LE PATIENT ET POUR LE MANIPULATEUR
SI LES MESURES DE PROTECTION NE SONT PAS STRICTEMENT APPLIQUEES
Bien que cet appareil soit construit selon les normes de sécurité les plus sévères, la source de rayonnement X représente un danger
lorsque le manipulateur est non qualifié ou non averti. Une exposition excessive au rayonnement X entraîne des dommages à l’organisme.
Par conséquent, toutes les précautions doivent être prises pour éviter que les personnes non autorisées ou non qualifiées utilisent cet
appareil créant ainsi un danger pour les autres et pour elles–mêmes.
Avant chaque manipulation, les personnes qualifiées et autorisées à se servir de cet appareil doivent se renseigner sur les mesures de
protection établies par la Commission Internationale de la Protection Radiologique, Annales 26 : Recommandations de la Commission
Internationale sur la Protection Radiologique et les normes nationales en vigueur.

WARNING
X–RAY EQUIPMENT IS DANGEROUS TO BOTH PATIENT AND OPERATOR
UNLESS MEASURES OF PROTECTION ARE STRICTLY OBSERVED
Though this equipment is built to the highest standards of electrical and mechanical safety, the useful x–ray beam becomes a source of
danger in the hands of the unauthorized or unqualified operator. Excessive exposure to x–radiation causes damage to human tissue.
Therefore, adequate precautions must be taken to prevent unauthorized or unqualified persons from operating this equipment or exposing
themselves or others to its radiation.
Before operation, persons qualified and authorized to operate this equipment should be familiar with the Recommendations of the Interna-
tional Commission on Radiological Protection, contained in Annals Number 26 of the ICRP, and with applicable national standards.

ATENCION
LOS APARATOS DE RAYOS X SON PELIGROSOS PARA EL PACIENTE Y EL MANIPULADOR
CUANDO LAS NORMAS DE PROTECCION NO ESTAN OBSERVADAS
Aunque este aparato está construido según las normas de seguridad más estrictas, la radiación X constituye un peligro al ser manipulado
por personas no autorizadas o incompetentes. Una exposición excesiva a la radiación X puede causar daños al organismo.
Por consiguiente, se deberán tomar todas las precauciones necesarias para evitar que las personas incompetentes o no autorizadas
utilicen este aparato, lo que sería un peligro para los demás y para sí mismas.
Antes de efectuar las manipulaciones, las personas habilitadas y competentes en el uso de este aparato, deberán informarse sobre las
normas de protección fijadas por la Comisión Internacional de la Protección Radiológica, Anales No 26: Recomendaciónes de la Comi-
sión Internacional sobre la Protección Radiológica y normas nacionales.

ACHTUNG
RÖNTGENAPPARATE SIND EINE GEFAHR FÜR PATIENTEN SOWIE BEDIENUNGSPERSONAL,
WENN DIE GELTENDEN SICHERHEITSVORKEHRUNGEN NICHT GENAU BEACHTET WERDEN
Dieser Apparat entspricht in seiner Bauweise strengsten elektrischen und mechanischen Sichereitsnormen, doch in den Händen unbe-
fugter oder unqualifizierter Personen wird er zu einer Gefahrenquelle. Übermäßige Röntgenbestrahlung ist für den menschlichen Orga-
nismus schädlich.
Deswegen sind hinreichende Vorsichtsmaßnahmen erforderlich, um zu verhindern, daßunbefugte oder unqualifizierte Personen solche
Geräte bedienen oder sich selbst und andere Personen deren Bestrahlung aussetzen können.
Vor Inbetriebnahme dieses Apparats sollte sich das qualifizierte und befugte Bedienungspersonal mit den geltenden Kriterien für den ge-
fahrlosen Strahleneinsatz durch sorgfältiges Studium des Hefts Nr. 26 der Internationalen Kommission für Strahlenschutz (ICRP) vertraut
machen: Empfehlungen der Internationalen Kommission für Strahlenschutz und anderer nationaler Normenbehörden.

INTRODUCTION
CHAPTER 1 – INTRODUCTION

SECTION 1
MAINTENANCE TOOLS

1–1 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 1–1 to
1–4 for an overview of this structure. Illustrations 1–1 and 1–2 refer to Generator
maintenance; Illustrations 1–3 and 1–4 refer to Gantry maintenance.

1–2 Signal Lists/Glossaries

Chapter AUCUN LIEN provides Signal Lists/Glossaries (from English to French and vice
versa) for the Gantry and the Generator.

1–3 Module Disassembly/Reassembly

A set of job cards giving instructions for module disassembly/reassembly is provided in


Chapter 3.

1–4 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.

1–5 Troubleshooting Guides

A set of Troubleshooting Guides (TSG) is provided in Chapter 5. These give recommended


procedures for tracing and correcting faults.

1–6 Block Diagrams

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

GE Medical Systems Senographe DMR V2

INTRODUCTION

SECTION 2
DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE

2–1 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.
D 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.

2–2 Problems generating error messages

2–2–1 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.

2–2–2 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).

2–3 CPU board and interface problems

Boards concerned :
D Generator : 400PL3 and 400PL2,
D 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.

1–2
GE Medical Systems Senographe DMR V2
REV 3 asm 2118393–104

INTRODUCTION
2–3–1 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.

2–3–2 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.

2–3–3 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 in Chapter AUCUN LIEN . 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.

CHAPTER 2 – “MAMMOCOM” COMMUNICATION SOFTWARE

SECTION 1
PURPOSE OF THE SOFTWARE

The MAMMOCOM Communication Software provides the connection from the Senographe
DMR to a PC (laptop)* to access GEMS-reserved maintenance tests.

“MAMMOCOM”

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 CTRL–D:
Used to disconnect the two Senographe units.
D Alt–M:
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 Alt–M 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).

GE Medical Systems Senographe DMR V2
REV 3 asm 2118393–104

6–3 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.

6–4 Communications Protocol

This is a character protocol which involves the transmission of ASCII characters in full duplex
with data flow control (XON/OFF Protocol).

“MAMMOCOM”
The default parameters are:
D Baud rate: 9600
D com–port: Com 1
D Parity: Even
D Length: 07
D 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).

6–5 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,
D Cursor keys,
D Four keys: Insertion, Backspace, Prev Screen, and Next Screen.
The emulator does not recognize display commands in large characters, semi–graphic, or
underlined (due to the CGA LCD boards of the PC).
Most of the cursor–positioning 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 software’s performance is closer to a terminal than the standard ANSI.SYS file.

FILE TRANSMISSION

This menu is used to transfer DMR files to the PC, and vice–versa.
Two types of file are concerned:
D Text files in any format.
D Encoded files with the Motorola Exormacs protocol.

8–1 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
start–up, 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: @<5409>
– Arm data save: @<5421>
– Arm data load: @<5422>
– Gene error codes transfer: @<0314>
– Gene data save: @<0361>
– Gene data load: @<0362>
– Gene statistics transfer: @<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:
Ctrl–D: Disconnect F10: Connect Alt–M: Main Menu
4. Hit <Alt>–<M> to access the Main Menu without disconnecting from the Senographe.
5. Select: File Transmission.

8–2 Type of Files Transferred

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

8–2–1 Coded Files

These are binary files which observe the Motorola Exormacs format. Coded files are used to
transfer the Senographe calibration variables for back–up 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 PC–to–Senographe transfer, the file type is not processed by the MAMMOCOM
software. All the characters of the file are transmitted.

8–2–2 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.

5.3 Adjustment

The installation of a new Photomultiplier cell necessitates full readjustment of the AEC, except for the
non–reciprocity parameters (see DMR Service Manual – Installation Steering Guide).
THE SENOGRAPHE DMR IS NOW OPERATIONAL WITH NEW PHOTOMULTIPLIER CELL

5.4 How to handle / change the photomultiplier tube (PMT) alone

During replacement of the PMT located in the Senographe photocell, undesired behavior
(e.g., instability, high dark current) in the photomultiplier tube may occur if some basic
precautions are not taken.There are four main causes: Fingerprints on glass casing and plastic
base, Poor tube centering in photocell, Exposure to excessively strong light in room, Incorrect
alignment of tube photocathode to photocell screen.

DISASSEMBLY
5.4.1 Rule 1

The glass casing and plastic base of the PMT must be scrupulously cleaned before the PMT is
inserted into the cell casting. Dirty casing can cause ohmic leakage. To plug the PMT into its
socket, handle the PMT with clean tissue (or clean soft gloves, if available).

5.4.2 Rule 2

A major cause of instability is the contact between glass casing and photocell casting. This
contact (or too close proximity) produces electrostatic discharge noise and additional dark
current. To facilitate tube centering, a plastic guide has been designed and included in a
Photomultiplier Kit (Part No. 2143783). The Kit is delivered automatically as a replacement for
the photomultiplier alone (Part No. 45067100)
Note: A tool (Part No. 56052519) is available from stock to screw/unscrew easily the plastic plugs.
Note: All PMTs are numbered, the serial number is engraved on one electrode inside the glass casing
(see ill. 2).
Note: Genuine renewal parts only MUST be used to replace the PMT, the current brand being
Hamamatsu 931A–01.

TUBE Job Card DR 006 5 of 6

5.4.3 Rule 3

Following exposure to room light, the PMT tube should be maintained in the dark for one
1/2 hour approx. so that the dark current returns to its original value. In addition, if the PMT is in
good condition, there should not be any significant variation of the dark current when the PMT
high voltage supply is changed from 300 V to 900 V. The PMT dark current should never exceed
50 nA at 900 V. Reminder: on a Senographe DMR, an excessively high dark current will produce
error 037/003.
See Job Card TSG002 (in DMR Advanced Service Manual) for measurement and
troubleshooting.
Note: Any light leakage to the PMT can also create an offset current dependant on the high voltage applied
to the PMT. In case of doubt, check the lightproofing, using a strong light all around the photocell.

DISASSEMBLY
5.4.4 Rule 4

PMT tube needs to have its photocathode well centered with respect to the sensitive screen. It
must be ensured that the PMT cannot move afterward. Therefore, the tube socket must be firmly
fixed in the casting (see Illustration 3, screws S1 and S2), and properly oriented as shown in
Illustration 3. Use a 2.5 mm Allen wrench and a 5.5 mm box wrench if tightening is needed.

5.2 Check of grid carriage (see illustration 1)


DISASSEMBLY

1. Check that the carriage runs freely on its rails, with no jamming. An easy test is to set carriage at
end–of–travel and tilt slowly the examination arm (with DMR powered!) in order to make the carriage
move on its rails. The carriage must reach opposite end–of–travel before the arm angulation reaches
45 degrees. Do this test in both directions.
2. If the carriage cannot move freely, or there is lateral play, readjust the front bearing eccentrics (64) of
the carriage: use a 11 mm flat ignition wrench to turn them a little bit (access from the top, between
rollers and carriage).
3. The bearing eccentrics adjustment should not allow any lateral play but it should be possible to rotate
the rollers by hand, while blocking carriage movement. Check also that the four rollers rotate normally
when the carriage is moved. Repeat step 5.2.1 after adjustment. Information: if measured, the traction
force must be less than 120 g.

5.3 Installation of grid motor (see illustration 1) and centering

1. Loosen the two screws (S13, S14) on the end–piece (98), with 5.5 mm flat wrench.
2. Install the new motor and install screws S11 and S12 (do not tighten) and insert motor shaft into the
end–piece.
3. Reduce the play given by screws S11, S12, S13, S14 to minimum (do not tighten).
4. Remove the voice coil locking screw located at motor backside, and screw it at S3.
5. Place the adjustment tool (36002607) equipped with 16 mm dia. pin (36002609) in position, as shown
on illustration 1. The narrow part of the hole “H” is also 16 mm wide. Push the carriage in contact with
the adj. tool.
6. Check (adjust) the protusion of the large shaft of the motor, which must be EXACTLY 5 mm (mini
4.80 mm; maxi 5.20 mm); use a 5 mm Allen wrench as a gauge placed in contact with the motor (it
holds alone with magnetic field!). When shaft protudes correctly, tighten screw S10.
7. Align the motor by gradually tightening the screws S11 and S12, then S13 and S14, until
motor/carriage assembly moves freely.

1. Install 18 x 24 grid alone (without Bucky).


Check that, when pushing down the lever L1, the aluminium grid support is not loose, but check also
that a moderate force is necessary to push L1. If adjustment is needed, see paragraph 4 below.
2. Repeat the check 1 above using the large 24 x 30 grid, if available.
3. If adjustment needs to be different with large grid, you have to change both grid supports, using the kit
number: 36005889 to insure buckies compatibility.
4. Cam pressure adjustment (see illustration 1):
– unlock hex screw S15,
– using a 17 mm flat wrench, turn nylon screw N1 to insure sufficient (but not excessive!) cam
pressure. Actuate locking lever L1 to check adjustment,
– tighten screw S15.

SECTION 3
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

No specific safety precautions are applicable.

SECTION 4
PREREQUISITES

In order to perform some tasks of this Job Card, you will have to remove the grid from its bucky 18x24. To

5.2 Adjust magnet distance

1. Put the plastic dummy board (36002677) in place of 800PL10.


2. Check that the magnet is in contact or very close (less than 0.5 mm) to the metallic wedge of the dummy
board.
3. If necessary, readjust the distance by moving the magnet support; this support is secured with a hex
screw accessible from the rear of the grid carriage.
Take care that the magnet axis remains parallel to the carriage travel (this is important for the offset
value).
4. Remove dummy board.

5.3 Installation of image receptor board


DISASSEMBLY

1. Carry out the operations described in paragraph 5.1 above, in the reverse sequence.
DO NOT reinstall spacers that you could have found at step 5.1.6.
2. Do not tighten screws S1, S2, S3.
3. Switch on the DMR.
4. Turn potentiometer P1 until LED L2 (green) is lit. Fine adjustment will be done at paragraph 5.6.

5.4 Adjustment of board position

1. The board is equipped with a LED (L1) able to show the status of the photo–interrupter (F1), with a
better tactile sensitivity than the use of grid maintenance menu (screen No. 7114, see TSG 14). This
menu needs to be accessed anyway; starting from application mode select (see maintenance tree
structure, ASM page 1–7):
SETUP/ARM/VALID/MAINT/MAINT/MAINT/1–>2/GRID
2. Move slowly the grid carriage from one mechanical stop to the other: the LED L1 must be lit at each
end and off during the major part of the carriage travel.
If necessary, shift the board left or right until you obtain this result. The on/off transition must occur at
equal distance from each end.
On the grid menu screen, you can observe the “Grid End Stop” signal changing from Open to Closed
then back to Open (go slowly, there is a short software delay).
Check also that the moving blade (flag) is centered (does not rub) inside the photo – interrupter F1.
3. When adjustment is correct, tighten carefully screws S1 to S3.

5.5 Functional check; gain and offset adjustment

Note: See also informations given in TSG 014.


1. Set image receptor in horizontal position.
2. Install the grid alone (without Bucky). Raise the grid front edge by about one centimeter: observe on
maintenance menu that grid presence is still detected. If you are just at the limit of detection, raise grid
detector V3 (on 800PL10) at maximum height on its support and check again.
Note: If “grid presence” disappears during grid movement, the grid stops. This effect will be cancelled in
gantry software V2.23.
3. Perform a calibration via F1 key.
4. Check that MIN > 5000 (+5.000E+3) and MAX < 60500 (+6.050E+4).

DISASSEMBLY
If OK go to step 6.
If NOT OK (generally too high gain), reduce the gain by inserting equal spacers (washers) under
screws S1 and S2 of 800PL10, on component side, in order to increase the distance between the magnet
and the Hall sensor. Use washers 99010569 delivered with emergency kit or equivalent (these washers
are also used for screws S1 to S3). Check/adjust again board centering (see 5.4.2 above) and grid
detection.
5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until correct result.
A correct gain value will be between 0.40 and 0.80 (best is 0.60 to 0.8).
6. Check now that Offset value is: 0.40 < Offset < 0.60.
If the offset is out of range:
a. Check first that the magnet is moving perpendicularly to the Hall sensor (visible through the holes
of the new board 800PL10). The magnet support is not mounted correctly, or the board is not
aligned with carriage axis (that is to say, slightly rotated around screw S3).
b. Check that blade moving through photo–interrupter F1 is not bent or twisted. You can fine tune
Offset by changing the relative position between blade and magnet: use the available play given
by the two small locking screws.
In case of correction, perform again step 5.4.2. above.
7. Final check: reinstall grid in bucky and reinstall bucky.
Move grid carriage by hand. Check that you can reach mechanical stops “58” and not a stop given by
the carbon fiber edges (could be a cause for grid lines). It is normal that the grid rubs slightly inside its
bucky plastic rails. Check that nylon sliders (located under the bucky) are in contact with the image
receptor surface on all their length. If bucky is hard to insert or the clearance at the rear of the bucky is
over 1 mm, correct the rear height by adjusting the “black” feet. Check that calibration is OK for all
arm rotation angles, and for both 18 x 24 and 24 x 30 buckies. See IST 26 in Service manual.

5.6 Adjustment of grid detector sensitivity

1. Install the bucky 18 x 24 (with grid) on top of image receptor.


2. Set the potentiometer P1 fully CCW (counterclockwise). This set the grid detector to lowest
sensitivity.
3. While observing the green LED L2, move slowly the grid carriage along its whole mechanical travel.
4. If the LED brightness does not change during the grid carriage movement, go to step 6.
5. If the LED brightness varies during the grid carriage movement, set the carriage at the point where the
LED brightness is minimum (in some cases the LED can extinguish completely). Then turn slowly the
potentiometer P1 clockwise (CW) until the LED reaches its normal brightness. Do not go beyond this
point.
6. Remove the bucky from image receptor: the LED must be extinguished, even if the ambient room light
DISASSEMBLY

is high. If the LED is lit, repeat adjustment from step 1 of this paragraph.
7. If available, install the bucky 24 x 30 (with grid) on top of image receptor. While observing the green
LED L2, move slowly the grid carriage on its whole mechanical travel.
8. If the LED brightness varies during the grid carriage movement, repeat adjustment and checks from
step 5. The final adjustment must always be done for the worst case bucky.

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
E 5 5 text 1 6 1 0 1 3

I : Warning without exposure inhibition
S : Warning with exposure inhibition
a : type of error
E : Fault with exposure inhibition
K : Fault generating power cut–off (safety)
bb: message number
ccc: subassembly ref. (hardware or software)
ddd: number indicating origin of fault

In the above example:


E55 indicates an error concerning tube housing angulation and generating an exposure

ERROR CODES
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, para. AUCUN LIEN of the Advance Service Manual).
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 6 of the Advance Service Manual), 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.

IPM: PM current
VRTX: Real time operating system
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.

5.8 Grid calibration errors

5.8.1 118/011: Gain error

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 comprised between 0.40 and 0.80 for correct operation, best range is 0.60 to 0.80
(6.000 E–1 to 8.000 E–1). If the gain is too high, it can induce a 118/012 error if the offset is too far from 0.5.
Note: It must be clear that higher is the gain, better is the grid servomechanism. So in theory again ABOVE
0.8 is acceptable, the restriction comes only from offset value scattering.
For example:
if OFFSET = 0.38 and GAIN = 0.8
MIN = 65535* (OFFSET – (GAIN/2)) = – 1310.
So MIN < 0 cannot be accepted.
The gain is affected by:
1. The distance between the magnet and the Hall sensor: basic distance of 0.7 mm is adjusted by using the
plastic dummy board 36002677.
Fine tune of the distance (to decrease the gain) is done using shims (washers) placed under the board
800–PL10 screws, component side.
2. The electronic circuitry: specially from the board 800–PL1. That is why a preadjusted image receptor
needs further adjustments when coupled with an “unknown” electronic board.
3. Of course the magnet quality.
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.

TROUBLESHOOTING
The offset value must be as close as possible to 0.5 (5.000 E–1).
The offset value is affected if:
1. The Hall sensor is not aligned with the photo–interrupter F1 on 800–PL10. The centering error is
normally < 0.5 mm.
2. The magnet center is not aligned with the blade (flag). It is possible to use the play given by the blade
screws to shift slightly the offset.
3. The magnet is not moving perpendicularly respect to the Hall sensor.
4. The examination arm is tilted at  90°. The effect is produced by grid weight. The normal offset shift
is  0.04.
For example:
0.46 (4.600 E–1) when tube tilted on left side,
0.50 (5.000 E–1) when arm vertical,
0.54 (5.400 E–1) when tube tilted on right side.

5.8.3 118/012: Limit of travel not found error

This fault occurs if:


1. There is an 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. Too high gain or/and wrong offset.
3. Defective photo–interrupter (F1) on 800–PL10.
4. Motor cannot move:
Open voice coil wires, defective electronic circuitry.
5. Motor moves only in one direction: defective electronic circuitry (800–PL1).
6. “Optical” end–of–travel cannot be reached before mechanical stop: 800–PL1 not centered.

5.9 A few hints about grid components

5.9.1 Hall effect sensor

Hall sensor output is +4 V ( 50 mV) without any magnetic field measured on TP1/TP2 (800–PL10).
With the magnet flying above the sensor, the output varies from +3.5 to +4.5 volts minimum range to +2.0
to +6.0 volts maximum range. Perfect symmetry around 4 volts is not mandatory, depending on magnet /
sensor distance.
Maximum positive value is obtained when grid carriage is away (far) from motor side.
5.9.2 Magnet

The “red point” of the magnet repels the North pole of a compass, and is mounted facing motor side.

ILLUSTRATION 2

5.9.4 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
And also: MIN = A* (Offset – (Gain/2))
MAX = A* (Offset + (Gain/2))
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).

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

See CAUTION below concerning the unused position of console self–test activation switch 100 S1.

SECTION 4

None

SECTION 5
CONSOLE TROUBLESHOOTING

5.1 Prepare console for access to self–test.

TROUBLESHOOTING
5.1.1 Turn off the Senographe DMR.

5.1.2 Use small flat screwdriver to set console switch 100 S1 (located next to connector XJ3 for cable to
generator) to its CENTER position.

This switch has 3 positions: LEFT, CENTER and RIGHT. LEFT is normal
CAUTION 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. Instead, the console ”beeps” at
1–second intervals, and communication with the service terminal is
impossible. (See TSG01 page 3.) Also, the serial link with the generator is
interrupted.

5.2 Test sequence.

5.2.1 The following tests are executed automatically in the following sequence:

1. Buzzer test (300 ms)


2. Internal CPU RAM test
3. External CPU RAM test
4. Internal CPU timer test
5. Serial link loop–back test
6. Alpha–numeric display test
7. Visual test of 6 lamps inside console keys
8. Electrical consumption test: all displays and lamps are lit for 5 seconds
Note: Tests 1 through 5 are followed by a message (OK or ERROR) on the console display.
At the end of this sequence, ”Operator input test” is displayed on the left–hand console display.
5.2.2 The following tests require the service engineer to activate the keys and knobs on the console:

1. Key tests: service engineer momentarily presses each key (except 1st and 2nd trigger) on the console –
the left–hand 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.
2. 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 left–hand display. The right–hand display shows relative knob
positions.

5.3 Stop the test.


TROUBLESHOOTING

Switch S1 can be returned to its normal application position (i.e. LEFT position – see CAUTION above) at
any time. This results in a console CPU reset and restoration of the serial link with the generator.
Note: If S1 is returned to its normal application position during a test, the test is completed before the change
in switch position is recognized. This means that several seconds may be necessary before return to
normal application mode occurs.

5.4 Corrective action if a test is declared ”NOT OK”.

5.4.1 If any of tests 1 to 5 is ”NOT OK”, replace console control board 100PL2.

5.4.2 If test 6 is ”NOT OK”, replace the defective display.

5.4.3 If any of tests 7, 9 or 10 is ”NOT OK”, replace operator board 100PL1.

5.4.4 If test 8 is ”NOT OK”, i.e. displays are abnormally dim, replace console control board 100PL2.
