SYSTEM NOTATION (NP, NP+, ...)

Hardware Constitution of NP, NP+, NP++, and Twin


According to system models or customer options installed on the system, a number of system specifications or func-
tions available may differ from system to system; such are:

D Selectable scan times, MA values, FOV dimensions

D ‘Remote Tilt’ function

D Number of arrays of DAS/detector units, i.e., single or twin DAS/detector subsystem

D ...

However, the ‘HiSpeed’ series scanners are principally grouped into four, for which the following notations are given
respectively:
‘NP’, ‘NP+’, ‘NP++’ and ‘Twin’
In this ‘Diagnostics’ manual, these notations NP, NP+, NP++, and Twin are used to describe differences among these
four groups and to make descriptions of this manual read simpler.
(However, ‘Twin’ is further grouped into two, that is, ‘NP+ Twin’ and ‘NP++ Twin’. In general outline,
NP+ Twin systems are NP/NP+ systems with a twin DAS/detector, and NP++ Twin systems are NP++ systems
with a twin DAS/detector. These notations also will be used when required.)

The following table describes the constitution of the major hardware of NP, NP+, NP++, and Twin.

IQ Performance Tool Status


This tools give us advance notice for IQ performance change.

For the system with V/R 5.5x or later, the two types of warm–up scan can be selected:

D Tube Warm–up: performs tube several warm–up scans. These can achieve 13% case temperature.

D Daily calibration (Warm up): performs conventional tube warm–up scans (tube warm–up scans:30% case
and calibration scans) plus IQ performance measurement scans. (For detail scan protocol, refer to IQ
performance Measurement scan described below.)

So, whenever the daily calibration is performed, the IQ performance data are collected and analyzed automatically,
and the results are stored in the file, then displayed on the “Status” column of the IQ Performance Tool Status. The
“Information” means the date when the status has been determined.
The three types of status are displayed:

Note
The results are stored as a vector file, so that they can also be seen using Scan Analysis, DD file
analysis function. (For mA Smudge and Scan Time Smudge Only, they can not be seen, because
the files can NOT be made.)
The files is stored up to 5MB. In excess of 5MB, the directory of the files will be cleaned up when
executing this tool. Since the vector files of approx. 400 KB per daily calibration are created, 10 days’
data can be stored. However calculation in Scan Analysis reduces data to be stored.

D GREEN: displayed when the result is WITHIN allowable specifications. (Also refer to IQ performance tool
specifications.)

D YELLOW: displayed when the result is OUTSIDE OF allowable specifications. There is a possibility to
affect Image Quality. (Also refer to IQ performance tool specifications.)

D RED: displayed when the result is OUTSIDE OF allowable specifications. A serious Image Quality prob-
lem might occur. (Also refer to IQ performance tool specifications.)

IQ Performance Tool Service Recommended Action


When the IQ Performance Tool Status turns YELLOW or RED, perform the followings in a periodic maintenance.
When the status turns in Yellow or Red but an IQ issue does not occurs, the urgent action is NOT required.

1. Check if a customer does not have any IQ problems.

2. Check the vector file(s) beyond tolerance level that have been gotten by the IQ performance test, using Scan
Analysis. Then detect and resolve problems according to the troubleshooting guide.

3. Perform the Calibration (Auto Sequence–1 calibration). The YELLOW indicators still exist.

4. Perform Auto CT Number Adjustment to remove the YELLOW indications (changed to all GREEN).

5. Perform Image Performance Test to check if no problem exists.

6. Perform the Daily calibration to verify that all of the IQ Performance Tool Status is GREEN.

Troubleshooting Guide For IQ Performance


D Baseline of this troubleshooting:
Basically air calibration and phantom calibration (Auto Sequence 1) should be finished after YELLOW/
RED flag. And still RED/YELLOW is existed, perform Auto CT Number Adjustment to remove the YEL-
LOW indicators (changed to all GREEN). Then check this list in sequentail order.
After fixing issues, Auto sequence–1 calibration and CT# adjustment are recommended to be done again.

D Sequence of checks:
If the IQ performance status shows Yellow/Red, please proceed the checks from upper to lower in the
related item. If the cause is clearly linked to the specific description by ”how to confirm”, only this specific
troubleshooting can be done and there is no need to check other tests in the same item.

1-15 SCAN ANALYSIS


The scan analysis feature allows users to have interactive access to scan files collected on the scanner. Scan data
to be viewed can come from either Patient Scanning or from service mode tools such as Diagnostic Data Collection
or Calibration.

Analysis is divided into three major areas of: SCAN ANALYSIS, dd FILE ANALYSIS, CAL FILE ANALYSIS, and Z–
tracking (for Twin ONLY). dd FILE ANALYSIS and CAL FILE ANALYSIS is not yet available for this CT System. Each
major section provides an File List Select interface similar to the Image Works List Select, Image Browser. Analysis
List Select allows you to select the appropriate file of interest.

Any of the normal scan files may be selected for processing within Scan Analysis including Axial, Helical, and Scout
scans. Once the scan data of interest is selected you can select one of several processing options which include:
Update, Scan Header, Cal Vectors, Plot MSD, Plot VVC, and Save Scan.

Definitions within Scan Analysis


D dd File (Diagnostic Data File):
dd files are a result file from some type of operation on the scan data file. dd files are typically some form
of view summed file that may have had some specific type of processing applied to it. For example, the
processing applied to the raw data to calculate the position of the pin in ISO alignment results in a tempo-
rary file that is a view summed result that could be saved as a dd file. As long as two dd files have the same
number of data elements in them the two files may be added, subtracted, multiplied, or divided with each
other.

D Means and Standard Deviation File (MSD):


This is usually the result of combining two or more views mathematically which results in Mean Values
for each channel in the views and an associated Standard Deviation for each channel in the views. In es-
sence all of the user selected views in a scan file are summed together resulting in a single “master view”
that contains the averaged data from all of the views. The mean values represent the average data value
from the channels and the standard deviation values represent the amount of variability for that channels
data values across all of the views. The higher the standard deviation the more the channel output varied
from view to view.

D Scan Header:
This is the information contained within the Scan File that identifies the specific settings in affect when
that scan file was created. The Scan Header includes information at several levels including: Exam, Se-
ries, and Scan. Information identifying the technique selections, scan time, acquisition mode, and many
others may be found in the scan header.

D Cal Vectors:
Within Scan Analysis the Cal Vectors are only those vectors contained within the Scan Data File at the
time that the scan was taken.

D VVC (Views vs Channels):


This is a way to graphically represent the data values from each channel for each view of data from the
S–DAS as a shade of grey. The display will have the views stacked vertically and the channels arranged
across the display horizontally.

Starting the Scan Analysis


Click on Scan Analysis. The following window appears.

Selections in Scan Analysis


Upon starting the Scan List Select window, you can highlight an EXAM –> SERIES –> SCAN, and perform the desired
analysis feature by pressing any of the following buttons:

D Update:
The UPDATE selection will refresh the List Select Display if new scan files have been created since the
Scan Analysis Tool was started.

D Scan Header:
The SCAN HEADER selection will open a scrolling text window that contains the header text information
contained in select scan file.

D Cal Vectors:
The CAL VECTOR selection will open a window that allows you to select which of the calibration vectors
in the selected scan file that you wish to look at. After the selections are made, OK will process the data
requests and display the results.
The resultant plots will be auto–scaled and in some cases the range of data displayed will be set automati-
cally. This is to provide a reasonable initial view of the data. Always check the scale on the left hand side
of the plot displays. Cursor reporting of data value and channel numbers is provided.

D Create MDS DD File: (For V/R 5.5x or later)
This will calculate a view averaged “super view” for the selected views and store the results in a separate
file on the systems disk. The display will report the path and filename of the file just created. Once created,
dd File can be viewed or compared with other files to check for specific operating characteristics.

D Plot MSD:
Provides a set of view summed Means and Standard Deviation Plots of a scan file. The plotter is started
to display the means vectors and the standard deviation vectors, computed across the entire scan for each
detector macro row. There will be (4) mean and standard deviation plot sets in the display window.
After Plot MSD is started, a preprocessing option selection window appears:

– Offset Correction:
This processing step removes from the scan data, the signal bias introduced by the acquisition
electronics. This operation is performed on a channel by channel basis for each view.

– Reference Normalization:
Makes use of unobstructed (not blocked by the patient) detector cells at the end of the detector
to adjust for fluctuations in the x–ray beam and effects of aperture size and mA. In the case where
the reference channels are blocked, the system uses an estimated value for the processing. The
steps for Reference Normalizing the scan data involves: Offset Correction for the Reference
Channels, Dividing the Offset Corrected Scan Data by the Averaged Reference Channels for
each view.

– Log Conversion:
The log operation is applied.

– Convolved Data:
N/A
(Do not use this function because a proper calculation can not so far be obtained.)

Cursor reporting of data value and channel numbers is provided.

D PLOT VVC:
The PLOT VVC selection provides Views–vs–Channels display of a grey scale representation for the se-
lected scan file. Each view of data (or summed, compressed view) is represented on the display as a hori-
zontal line. Each pixel in the line represents the data value for a particular channel from the DAS.
After VVC is activated,a preprocessing option selection window appears:

– Offset Correction:
This processing step removes from the scan data, the signal bias introduced by the acquisition
electronics. This operation is performed on a channel by channel basis for each view.

CURSOR BEHAVIOR IN VVC:


Cross hair Cursor reporting is provided for: Data Value, DAS Channel, Detector Channel, and View
number. The cursor is moved across the display using the mouse.
A selection box on the display allows selection of Line Cursors (Channel and View) and Box Cursors (Rec-
tangle) which allow the selection of a Channel, View, or Group of channels and views for plotting. The line
and box cursors can be moved around the screen to view specific areas of interest. When the mouse point-
er cursor is moved over a line cursor the mouse cursor will change to a four pointer arrow. Pressing the
left mouse button allows you to ‘drag’ the cursor across the display.
For the box cursors, the box may be dragged using the left mouse button with the mouse cursor positioned
over the box. The size and shape of the box can be changed by moving the mouse cursor over the Bottom
or Right edges of the box. When over the Bottom or Right edges of the box you can press the left mouse
button to drag the box edge up and down or left and right.
With the Line (Channel and View) cursors the plotted data will represent all Channels for a selected View
or all Views for a selected Channel.
With the Box Cursors the resulting plot will be a view summed Means and Standard Deviation plot for the
selected views and channels.

The Z–AXIS TRACKING tool is a new TAB for the twin system ONLY, located within the Analysis Tool. The tool can
be used to plot various tracking functions, using a Scan Data Set. For a scan data set, the analysis package can plot
different data versus views in UN–FILTERED (the default) or FILTERED (20 pt. Boxcar) formats.

1-15-1 Z–Axis Tracking (continued)


In the figures that follow, examples of “known” Tracking plots are shown. Since plots vary from system to system, the
examples shown should be used only as guides. Compare your System’s plots and analyze them relative to the speci-
fication shown in each figure. The plots shown are UN–FILTERED views, which is the default option when they are
plotted. A 20 point boxcar filter takes the 20 view average and then plots the data.

A value is not considered to be out of specification, unless the limit is exceeded for a sustained interval of 100 views
or more. In the cases where specifications are not given, consider plots informational only.

To use the function “Save to File” , need to make a directory named “data” under root. Then after performing Save
to File, plot data is displayed and text file will be stored into data directory as named “TrackingVsScan.txt” (about 15KB
size). But it is not so useful because of text file.

It is recommended to remove the directory “data” after checking the TrackingVsScan.txt file for system stability.

D Collimator Position:
The plot shows the Collimator Position during a scan. Collimator positions are stored in the Scan file (Raw

dd File List Select Overview


dd math is a means for the user to apply mathematical operations: add, subtract, multiply, and divide to dd files, and
calculate the channel to channel difference or ratio of means vs. standard deviation vectors of a dd file. It allows the
user to specify the scaling factor for the output vector, and provides three output modes: plot, dd file, and view num-
bers.

dd math is part of the dd analysis user interface. Scan Analysis is used to generate dd files that may then be manipu-
lated and or examined using dd File Analysis.

Operating dd Math Function


The dd math operation buttons will be insensitive if no files are selected into the dd math operation panel.

1. The user may start dd math operation(s) by selecting the file(s) and putting them into the selection field by clicking
the button FILE #1 or FILE #2.

If the selected file is not a dd file, the application will not put it into the dd math operation field. A message window
will pop up and ask user to select a dd file.

If only one file is selected and it is of the file type RTS dd file or MSD dd file, both Ch2Ch (Channel to Channel)
and Ratio (RATIO OF MEANS VS. STDV) will become sensitive.

If the selected file is not of the type MSD or RTS, only Ch2Ch will become sensitive.

When two dd files are selected, + (ADD), – (SUBTRACT), x (MULTIPLY), and / (DIVIDE) become sensitive and
Ch2Ch and Ratio will be insensitive.

2. The user can specify the output file name when the dd file output mode is set. Otherwise a default dd file name
will be provided.

3. The default output scaling factor is 1.0. The user can set the scaling factor to any real number.

4. When the dd math operation buttons are sensitive, the user can select the desired button to start the dd math
operation.

dd Files Generation
There are 18 different dd file types of six orientations. The orientations are View, Channel, RTS, CAL, Elements, and
Header.

Channel oriented means and standard deviation type dd files are the only type that can be created from scan data
files in the Scan Analysis application.

dd Math Functions
dd math consists of the following functions:

D Add

D Subtract

D Multiply

D Divide

D Channel to Channel (Ch2Ch) difference

D Ratio of means vs. standard deviation

Perform: add, subtract, multiply, divide, and channel to channel difference operations on dd files. These operations
are only available for dd file types.

Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide


Applies add, subtract, multiply, and divide between vectors in two dd files. The output file is a dd file with one of the
following suffixes:

D .add

D .dif

D .mul

D .rat

Operations can be performed on dd files in View orientation, Channel orientation, RTS orientation, and Cal orientation.

Currently, no dd type restrictions are applied to operations between dd files, as long as the dd vectors have the same
number of elements. If one file has a single vector and the other file has multiple vectors the mathematical operation
will be applied multiple times using the single vector.
Otherwise the mathematical operation will be applied component wise for the number of vectors in each file.

Channel to Channel Difference


Applies the following calculation to the data from the data set(s) in the dd files for View, RTS or Cal orientation.
(X2–X1), (X3–X2), (X4–X3),...,(Xn–Xn–1)
Where X is the data value for each channel.
The output is channel to channel dd file with extension: .c2c

Powering On
The following sequence occurs in the LED’s when the power switch is turned on:

1. The Power LED comes on.

2. The octal SCSI ID flashes briefly. The Least Significant Bit is next to the Power LED. Note that if the SCSI ID
is zero, no LEDs flash.

3. The three LEDs which represent an octal value flash once and go out.

4. Once the power–up sequence completes, the DASM CPU LED (second light from left) blinks regularly, indicating
that the CPU is active and functioning normally.

Start Up Sequence
When the DASM–VDB interface module is powering up, it performs start–up diagnostics and other related actions.

At power–up, the DASM unit performs the following tests:

D EPROM checksum test

D MFP 68901 access test (the Multi Function Peripheral chip controls the serial port, timing, and I/O)

D SCSI register access test

D Static RAM test

D Dynamic RAM test

D DMA test

When the DASM CPU LED blinks continuously at about two flashes per second, the initialization sequence is com-
plete, and the continuous self–test is in progress. The self–test runs until a SCSI command (a write to block 0 on the
DASM) is sent by the host. This test signals an error condition by blinking the CPU, SCSI, and Personal Module Inter-
face LEDs in tandem, continuously.

Start Up Problems
To report diagnostic conditions, the LEDs on the DASM–VDB front panel have a corresponding binary presentation.
The illustration 1–4 shows the value assigned to each LED (CPU, SCSI, Personal Module Interface LEDs).

DASM LED Error Codes


Using LEDs 1, 2, and 4 (CPU, SCSI, Personal Module Interface LEDs), a binary code signals any of the conditions
listed in Table 1–8. The Power LED is not used to report diagnostic conditions.
The three LEDs permit a combined total of only seven error codes. To overcome this limitation, the codes are defined
as a series of one or more patterns. Each pattern begins with all LEDs flashing briefly, to indicate the start of the num-
ber sequence that follows.
For example, to display error code 12 (Failed SCSI Interface Test), the CPU LED displays the first digit (1), stopping
briefly before the SCSI LED displays the second digit (2), as shown in Illustration 1–5.
The display of each digit lasts approximately four times the duration of the initial binary “7” (that if, the flash of all LEDs).
The patter then repeats. Only the significant digits for each error condition are listed in Table 1–8.

Note:
The first error stops the start–up sequence immediately.

In this mode the VDB tests the RS422 Driver and Receiver. Prior to executing this, a special loop–back
connector on the front panel of the VDB, without the loop–back connector the test will fail.

The loop–back connector is made by simply adding two wires to a 25–pin Male ‘D’ connector: (pin 8 to
pin 9) and (pin 21 to pin 22).

D Single Pass:
The start–up diagnostics execute once, as described in 1-3-3-2 Start–up Sequence. Please be aware
that when position 0 is open error and other messages encountered during start–up diagnostics are di-
rected to the serial port. Otherwise the errors are encoded on the LEDs.

D Single Pass w/Memory:


Is controlled by Bit 2. When open the DASM exercises the entire DRAM during the start–up diagnostics.
The Single Pass w/Memory test can take several minutes to complete, this is why it is normally disabled.

D Debug Mode:
When position 1 is open the program jumps to the I/O Monitor when a diagnostic error occurs. The I/O
Monitor gives the basic tools to debug the hardware. Opening positions 0 and 2 allows the technician
access to the start–up diagnostic suite via the serial port.

1-3-3-4 Start–up Problem


To report diagnostic conditions, the LEDs on the DASM II–VDB front panel have a corresponding binary representa-
tion. The illustration 1–7 below shows the value assigned to each LED. The section after the figure explains how the
LEDs represent error codes. Note that this sections deals with error codes related to the DASM Controller, where
Section 1-3-3-5, VDB Error Codes, explains the method used to report an error from the VDB diagnostic.

DASM Controller LED Error Codes


Using LEDs 2 and 4, a binary code signals any of the conditions listed in Table 1–10. The Power light and PIF LEDs
are not used to report diagnostic conditions.

The three LEDs permit a combined total of only seven error codes. To overcome this limitation, the codes are defined
as a series of one or more patterns. Each pattern begins with all LEDs flashing briefly, to indicate the start of the num-
ber sequence that follows.

For example, to display error code 12 (Failed SCSI Interface Test), the CPU LED displays the first digit (1), stopping
briefly before the SCSI LED displays the second digit (2), as shown in Illustration 1–7.

Illustration 1–7 LED Error Code Sequence

+ + = 12

All Flash “1” “2”


Short Long Long

The display of each digit lasts approximately four times the duration of the initial binary “7” (that is, the flash of all
LEDs). The pattern then repeats. Only the significant digits for each error condition are listed in Table 1–8.

Note:
The first error stops the start–up sequence immediately.

1-3-3-5 VDB Error Codes


The following sequence is used to signal an error during the VDB portion of the Self–test.

First, all three LEDs blink together for the duration of a single pass. This requires approximately 10–15 seconds.
Then the specific error code blinks twice before the next pass begins, with all three LEDs blinking together as before.

The bit pattern of the error codes appears as a series of LEDs being turned on and off. The low order bit is first.

When two LEDs blink together, the bit value is 1.


When only one LED blinks, the bit value is 0.

To see an example of an error code displayed in this way, do the following:

D Remove the loop–back connector from the front panel of the DASM II–VDB.

D SW 1 position 0 is closed.

D SW 1 position 1 is open.

D Now cycle the AC power on the DASM

D When the first pass of the DASM self–test has completed, the LED display begins. The expected error
is 5 (RS–422 port fail), and the LED sequence is:
Least significant first:
bit 0 = 2 LEDs on = 1 Value 1
bit 1 = 1 LED on = 0
bit 2 = 2 LEDs on = 1 Value 4
bit 3 = 1 LED on =0

From left to right, the lights indicate the following:

D PIF
Personality Interface light indicates a data transfer from the Common Memory to the LCAM circuitry.

D SCSI
This light indicates the host is accessing the DASM via the SCSI bus, such as commands sent or data
received.

D CPU
This light indicates that the DASM CPU is active and operating properly. It flashes continuously ( “blinks”
on and off) following power–up.

D PWR
Power Light indicates that the DASM is powered. If this light does not illuminate at power–up, you should
first check the power cord connections.

1-3-4-2 Start–up Sequence


When the DASM II–LCAM is powering up, it performs start–up diagnostics and other related actions.

At power–up, the DASM Controller performs the following tests:

D EPROM checksum test

D MFP 68901 access test (the Multi Function Peripheral chip controls the serial port, timing, and I/O)

D SCSI register access test

D Static RAM test

D Dynamic RAM test

D DMA test

When the DASM CPU LED blinks continuously at about two flashes per second, the initialization sequence is com-
plete.

If an error occurs, the error condition is reported by blinking the CPU, SCSI, and PIF LEDs in tandem followed by an
error code.

Powering On
The following sequence occurs on the front panel’s LEDs when the power switch is turned on:

1. The Power LED lights.

2. The octal SCSI ID flashes briefly. The Least Significant Bit is next to the Power LED. Note that if the SCSI ID
is zero, no LEDs flash.

3. The three LEDs flash once and go out.

4. Once the power–up sequence completes, the DASM CPU LED (second light from right) blinks regularly, indicat-
ing that the CPU is active and functioning normally.

D Single Pass:
Is the default setting, and is the only setting allowed when connected to a laser camera.The start–up diag-
nostics execute once, as described in 1-3-4-2 Start–up Sequence.

D Continuous Mode:
After executing the start–up diagnostic, the resident software will continuously run the LCAM self–test.
Self–test will continue until the first SCSI command is received by the DASM. Please be aware that when
position 0 is open error and other messages encountered during start–up diagnostics are directed to the
serial port. Otherwise the errors are encoded on the LEDs.

D Single Pass w/Memory:


Is controlled by Bit 2. When setting to “open”, the DASM exercises the entire DRAM during the start–up
diagnostics. The Single Pass w/Memory test can take several minutes to complete, this is why it is normal-
ly disabled.

D Debug Mode:
When position 1 is open, the program jumps to the I/O Monitor when a diagnostic error occurs. The I/O
Monitor gives the basic tools to debug the hardware. Opening positions 0 and 2 allows the technician
access to the start–up diagnostic suite via the serial port.

1-3-4-4 Start–up Problem


To report diagnostic conditions, the LEDs on the DASM II–LCAM front panel have a corresponding binary representa-
tion. The illustration 1–8 below shows the value assigned to each LED. The section after the figure explains how the
LEDs represent error codes. Note that this sections deals with error codes related to the DASM Controller, where
Section 1-3-4-5, LCAM Error Codes, explains the method used to report an error from the LCAM diagnostic.

DASM Controller LED Error Codes


Using LEDs 2 and 4, a binary code signals any of the conditions listed in Table 1–13. The Power light and PIF LEDs
are not used to report diagnostic conditions.

The three LEDs permit a combined total of only seven error codes. To overcome this limitation, the codes are defined
as a series of one or more patterns. Each pattern begins with all LEDs flashing briefly, to indicate the start of the num-
ber sequence that follows.

For example, to display error code 12 (Failed SCSI Interface Test), the CPU LED displays the first digit (1), stopping
briefly before the SCSI LED displays the second digit (2), as shown in Illustration 1–8.

Illustration 1–8 LED Error Code Sequence

+ + = 12

All Flash “1” “2”

The display of each digit lasts approximately four times the duration of the initial binary “7” (that is, the flash of all
LEDs). The pattern then repeats. Only the significant digits for each error condition are listed in Table 1–13.

Note:
The first error stops the start–up sequence immediately.

1-3-4-5 LCAM Error Codes


The following sequence is used to signal an error during the LCAM portion of the Self–test.

First, all three LEDs blink together for the duration of a single pass. This requires approximately 10–15 seconds.
Then the specific error code blinks twice before the next pass begins, with all three LEDs blinking together as before.

The bit pattern of the error codes appears as a series of LEDs being turned on and off. The low order bit is first.

When two LEDs blink together, the bit value is 1.


When only one LED blinks, the bit value is 0.

The Self–test runs in continuous mode when SW 1 position 0 is “open”. A single failure will cause a error code to flash
repreatedly on the LEDs. Although, other errors may occur during testing only the first one is displayed forever.

First all LEDs will blink together several times indicates a problem. Next, the error code is displayed serially, twice
in the two leftmost LEDs.

The pattern is binary and takes 4 blinks for the complete code. When the two LEDs blink together, the bit value is
1, when only blinks the bit is 0. The bit order is low to high.

Record the blink pattern in the number of LEDs blinking, 1 or 2.

Record them RIGHT to LEFT, to make them easier to interpret.

1 2 1 2 Subtract 1 from each digit to obtain the bit value.

D IDE Tests

Power–On Test
These run automatically on the major hardware components of the workstation each time it is turned on. If the tests
find a faulty part, the LED on the front of the system will be red and there will probably be an error message. See also
Problem Diagnosis (Section 2-1).

IDE Tests
The Interactive Diagnostic Environment (IDE) tests are more comprehensive than the Confidence Tests, and take
longer (as long as 30–45 minutes) to run. See Integrated Diagnostic Environment (IDE) Tests on the SBC (O2) (Sec-

2-3 RECOVERING FROM SYSTEM CRASH


In most cases, your system will recover from a system crash automatically if you reboot the system.
If, however, you have lost data on your system disk, and you cannot communicate with your system using the mouse
or keyboard, or over the network, follow these instructions. The instructions assume you have a backup tape of your
system that has been made using the System Manager backup tool, or with the /usr/sbin/Backup script. You also need
a CD with your current IRIX operating system level. If you are recovering data from a tape on a remote tape device,
you need to know the hostname, tape device name, and IP address of the remote system.

1. Use a pen tip or an unwound paper clip to press the RESET button located on the front panel (Illustration 2–3).

5. When a notifier appears asking you for the remote hostname, type the system’s name, a colon (:), and the full
pathname of the CD–ROM drive, followed by /dist. For example, to access a CD–ROM drive. On the system
mars, you would type: mars:/CDROM/dist
After everything is copied from the CD to the system disk, you can restore your data from a recent full backup
tape. The backup must be one that has been made using the System Manager backup tool, or with the /usr/sbin/
Backup script.
Tip: If you need to check something on your system during the restore process, you can get a
shell prompt by typing sh at most question prompts.

6. If you have a local tape device, you see this message:

IP address, such as 192.0.2.1, always has four components separated by periods.
– If you answer ‘local,’ you have chosen a tape device that is connected to your system, and you are prompted
to enter the name of the tape device.

8. When you see the following message, remove the CD–ROM, insert your most recent full backup tape, then press
ENTER.

Insert the first backup tape in the drive, then press <Enter>,
[q]uit (from recovery), [r]estart:

There is a pause while the program retrieves several files from the tape describing the system state at the time
the backup was made. Then you see this message:

Erase /x filesystem and make new one (y,n)? [n]

It prompts you for every file system that was known at the time of the backup. Read the following to decide wheth-
er to answer y or n.
– If you answer n for no, the system tries to salvage as many files as possible. Then it uses your backup tape
to replace the files it could not salvage. Usually you should answer no, especially if your backup tape is not very
recent. If the file systems were badly damaged, or the backup was from a different level operating system, you
may need to answer yes.
– – If you answer y for yes, the system erases the file system and copies everything from your backup tape to
the disk. The system loses any information on that file system that you created between now and when you made
your backup tape.

9. You see this message:

Starting recovery from tape.

After two or three minutes, the names of the files that the system is copying to the disk start scrolling. When the
recovery is complete, you see this message:

Recovery complete, restarting system.

Note
If your backup tapes were old, or you were changing your operating system level, you should reinstall
the operating system from the IRIX CD that came with your system after system recovery is com-
plete. When you see the Startup System notifier, press ESC, or click STOP FOR MAINTENANCE.
Then click Install System Software.

2-4 DISABLING THE SYSTEM MAINTENANCE PASSWORD


If you are in the System Maintenance menu, and you choose INSTALL SYSTEM SOFTWARE, RUN DIAGNOSTICS,
RECOVER SYSTEM, or ENTER COMMAND MONITOR, you may be prompted for a password.

If you do not know the password, you can disable it by installing a jumper (a small cap that connects two pins) on the
system board inside the workstation. The system board is located in the system module. To install the jumper, you
must first remove the system module and the PCI tray. Follow these steps:

1. Turn off the workstation by pressing the power button on the front.

2. Remove the system module by releasing the lever on the extreme left as you face the rear of the workstation
and sliding the module out. See Section 1–6 System Module, of OC Tabl of the Component Replacement manual.

3. Release and remove the PCI tray. See Section 1–8 PCI Tray, of OC Tabl of the Component Replacement manual.

NOTICE
Before touching any of the components, attach the wrist strap to your wrist and to a metal
part of the chassis.

4. Remove the jumper from the system board in the location shown in Illustration 2–6.

2-5 INTEGRATED DIAGNOSTIC ENVIRONMENT (IDE) TESTS ON THE SBC (O2)


The IDE tests on the O2 are stand alone tests that must be run at the boot PROM level.

To run the O2 IDE tests from the OC, the user must first shut down applications. Next, cu into the SBC by opening
a UNIX shell and typing: cu sbc. Once a serial connection has been established, the O2 must be shut down and re–
started. Do this by logging into the SBC as root and typing the ‘halt’ command. Press ENTER when prompted to restart
the SBC. When the system begins start–up, a message appears giving the user the option of performing system main-
tenance. Press ESC at this prompt to get to the System Maintenance Menu. Choose Option 3, Run Diagnostics.
A hardware probe will be conducted and a default set of test scripts will be run automatically. This set takes approxi-
mately 10 minutes to execute. Pass and failure information is updated to the screen.

When you run the tests, the following error message may appear. However, ignore this message.

SECTION 2 – POWER–ON TEST

2-1 TGP BOARD POWER–ON TEST


The TGP board includes the following three microprocessors.

Processor Main Function


Gantry Processor Controls gantry rotation.
Table Processor Controls table and cradle operations and gantry tilt operation.
Controls the gantry display, and interfaces the gantry panel
switches.
Management Processor Communicates with the operator console and the OGP board
on the gantry rotative frame.
Controls the IMS (Intermediate Support).

After powering on or resetting the TGP board, each processor performs ROM based power–on tests in parallel, as
described in Table 2–1.

2-1-1 Gantry Processor

RAM Check
1. The gantry processor (U87) performs read/write checks of its internal RAM, the external RAM (U92), and the
dual port RAM (U77).

2. If a RAM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRG, LPG, RQG LED’s lighting
on the TGP board.

If no error occurs, the processor proceeds to the following step.

ROM Check
3. The processor performs a data sum check on addresses 0 ∼ BFFF of the external ROM (U112).

4. If a ROM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRG, LPG, RQG LED’s lighting.

If no error occurs, the LPG LED blinks, and the processor proceeds to the following step.

Gantry Rotation Check and Azimuth Counter Initialization


5. The gantry processor starts rotating the gantry to check that the operation can be normally performed.

a. If the SYS–OFF–MNL service switch (SW1) on the TGP board is set to OFF, the system waits until the switch
is set to SYS or MNL, with the RQG and LPG LED’s alternately blinking.

b. If power is not supplied to the servo amplifier, the rotation check is terminated, with the ERRG LED lighting.

If any other abnormal conditions/operations are found, the rotation check is terminated.

To start the rotation check anew, resolve the problems, and power on or reset the TGP board.

6. The gantry rotates at 15 sec/Rev, and the processor initializes the gantry azimuth counter with the GPLS1 signal.

a. If the initialization of the counter is not performed within 25 sec, the rotation is terminated, with the ERRG LED
lighting.

2–2 TABLE/GANTRY
CT HISPEED SERIES
GE MEDICAL SYSTEMS DIAGNOSTICS
REV 9 2202125

2-1-2 Table Processor

RAM Check
1. The table processor (U42) performs read/write checks of its internal RAM, the external RAM (U64), and the dual
port RAM (U48).

2. If a RAM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRT, LPT, RQT, MNT LED’s
lighting on the TGP board.

If no error occurs, the processor proceeds to the following step.

ROM Check
3. The processor performs a data sum check on addresses 0 ∼ DFFF of the external ROM (U68).

4. If a ROM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRT, RQT, MNT LED’s lighting.

If no error occurs, the LPT LED blinks, and the processor proceeds to the following step.

Gantry Display and Switch LED Check


5. The processor sequentially displays test characters (numbers) on the gantry display, and at the same time, se-
quentially lights gantry panel switch LED’s.
Refer to the Rotational Operation section of Gantry, of the Functional Check / Adjustment manual.

Gantry Tilt and Table Up/down Relay Check


The gantry tilt or table up/down operation is performed by a pump/valve mechanism which is powered by AC 115 V.
This power is conveyed through two relays connected in series on SUB BD. Refer to Illustration 2–1. With these
connections, if one relay of the two failed (that is, always closed), the power flow can be cut off by the other relay.
This check verifies these relay operations.

6. The processor closes one relay which is controlled by the enable lines, and verifies that the gantry tilt or table
up/down does not take place.

If the operation takes place, the other relay (direct) is considered to be failed (closed), since any key on the gantry
switch panel is not pressed while the relay (enable) is activated; and an error message is displayed on the opera-
tor console (OC).

7. An LED blinks on the gantry switch panel, and then press the key with the LED blinking.

If the corresponding operation takes place, the other relay (enable) is considered to be failed (closed), since the
processor does not activate the relay (enable) while the key is pressed; and an error message is displayed on
the OC.

2. If a RAM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with one of ERRM, LPM, RQM, MNM
LED’s lighting on the TGP board.

If no error occurs, the processor proceeds to the following step.

ROM Check
3. The processor performs a data sum check on addresses 0 ∼ BFFF of the external ROM (U111).

4. If a ROM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRM, RQM, MNM LED’s light-
ing.

If no error occurs, the LPM LED blinks.

2-2 OGP BOARD POWER–ON TEST


The OGP board is equipped on the gantry rotative frame and includes a microprocessor called Scan Processor, and
mainly performs the following controls in scan sequence, according to commands from the Management processor
on the TGP board.

D Scan control

D DAS control

D X–ray generator (JEDI) control

D Aperture control

D Positioning light control

After powering on or resetting the OGP board, the scan processor performs ROM based power–on tests (RAM check
→ ROM check), as described below.

RAM Check
1. The scan processor performs read/write checks of the external RAM and its internal RAM.

2. If a RAM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRS, LOOPS LED’s lighting
on the OGP board.

If no error occurs, the processor proceeds to the following step.

ROM Check
3. The processor performs a data sum check of the external ROM.

4. If a ROM check error occurs, the processor will stay in a hang up state, with the ERRS LED lighting.

If no error occurs, the LOOPS LED blinks.

SECTION 3 – ERROR MESSAGE

3-1 ERROR MESSAGE


The errors described in Table 3–1 through 3–53 are detected by the TGP, OGP, or CIF board. When an error occurs,
the error information is sent to the operator console (OC) using the Status communication.

Error with no Error Message


If either of the following errors occur, the microprocessor on the TGP or OGP board are forced to run in an infinite
loop, and no error message is sent to the OC.

D RAM, ROM check error:


These checks are performed during a power–up sequence.

D Processor hang up:


This is detected by the watchdog timer at intervals of 10.9 msec.

3-1 ERROR MESSAGE (continued)

Error Class
The errors detected by the TGP, OGP, or CIF board are either classified as Error Class, or Information Class, accord-
ing to below:

D Error:
If an error of this ‘Error’ class occurs during a scan, the scan is aborted, and an error message is displayed
on the OC monitor.

D Information (written as ‘Infor.’ in Table 3–1 ∼ 3–53):


If an error of this ‘Information’ class occurs during a scan, the scan will be continued, and an error message
is not displayed on the OC monitor.

Communication via Slip Rings (RS422)


The scan processor on the OGP board communicates with the management processor on the TGP board via slip
rings.
Normally, when one of the two processors receives communication data from the other processor, the receiving proc-
essor checks a checksum data, and sends back an ACK message to the sender, if the data is OK; otherwise, sends
back a NACK message. When the sender receives this NACK message, it resends the data. If this repeats three
times (three NACK’s), the communication is regarded as an error. If the receiver does not send ACK nor NACK within
a specified time, this also is regarded as an error communication.

2-4 ERROR REPORTING


Np system only gets the simplified error code from the Jedi generator.
The Np system errorlog adds to the simplified error code the following information :
D error message (refer to the Np system documentation)
D system phase : state of the system when the error occurred. Take care, the system state may be
different to the generator phase (refer to the Np system documentation)
D system time : date and time when the error occurred. Take care, the system time may be different
to the generator time
Whenever a generator error is logged in the system errorlog file and displayed on the operator
console, the Jedi errorlog upload functionality is available to get more detailed information about the
error.
This function must be performed from the operator console.
The simplified error code must be used to find the Jedi error code in the Jedi errorlog file.
Having these two information, look at the Jedi trouble shooting table to find the FRU to replace.
Error codes can also be read by connecting the laptop

The table below provides guidelines to troubleshoot Generator problems based on error code.
For each code, there is :
– Associated message and additional explanation related to the error occurrence.
– List potential cause, in the order of expected probability.
– Recommended action, with, in some cases, link to some more information as indicated where
cases apply, such as to run some specific diagnostics.
Codes are sorted by ascending order both for simplified code and error code.
Refer to the theory of operation for error code structure.
Information about associated data structure is located at the end of each error code subset whenever
it applies.

2-6 WARNING ERRORS


Warning errors are the result of automated and regular background monitoring for either software
events or voltages threshold overtaking.
Those errors are merely for engineering usage and do not indicate any hardware error failure.
However, as they are logged into the Generator Err_log file, just as the previous list of error, they are
listed here to help error sorting out.
Should too many of them are seen when viewing error log, it is advised to report them via CQA, since
the equipment is still operating.

3-4 ERROR REPORTING

3-4-1 NP Generator Error Reporting


Np system only gets the simplified error code from the Jedi Generator.
The Np system errorlog adds to the simplified error code the following information:

D error message (refer to the Np system documentation)

D system phase : state of the system when the error occurred. Take care, the system state is different of
the Generator phase (refer to the Np system documentation)

D system time : date and time when the error occurred. Take care, the system time is different of the Genera-
tor time

Whenever a Generator error is logged in the system errorlog file and displayed on the operator console, the Jedi error-
log upload functionality is available to get more detailed information about the error.
This function must be performed from the operator console.
The simplified error code must be used to find the Jedi error code in the Jedi errorlog file.
Having these two information, look at the Jedi trouble–shooting table to find the FRU to replace.

Error codes can also be read by connecting the service laptop.

3-4-2 Tiger Generator Error Reporting (not for NP++ and Ebisu systems)
Tiger console only displays the simplified error code from the Jedi Generator.

Whenever a Generator error is displayed on the operator console, the Jedi errorlog upload functionality is available
to get more detailed information about the error.
This function must be performed from the service laptop.
The simplified error code must be used to find the Jedi error code in the Jedi errorlog file.
Having these two information, look at the Jedi trouble shooting table to find the FRU to replace.

3-5-1 Detailed Error Description & Troubleshooting Guide


The first part details errors, while the warning errors are listed in a second part of this chapter.

The table below provides guidelines to troubleshoot Generator problems based on error code.
For each code, there is:

–Associated message and additional explanation related to the error occurrence.


–List potential cause, in the order of expected probability.
–Recommended action, with, in some cases, link to some more information as indicated where cases apply, such
as to run some specific diagnostics.

Codes are sorted by ascending order both for simplified code and error code.
Refer to the theory of operation for error code structure.
Information about associated data structure is located at the end of each error code subset whenever it applies.

Whenever wiring, cabling, LED check is mentioned in the recommended actions, refer to the central listing.

* Note to the error 30 0324H:


The generator sends only one message of error for all the spits (0324H) at the end of the exposure.
During the same exposure we may have different kind of spits.
In the data of this error we can distinguish between the different spits:
1: Spit in anode side
2: Spit in cathode side
4: Spit in both sides
8: kV regulation error.

For a exposure with anode and both sides spit, the data will be “5”.

These data can be displayed in the OC in decimal or in hexadecimal base.
