Invalid Reading or Unrecognizable Strip Error

These are messages you will get when your unit won't recognize or read a control strip.

 Possible Causes:

  • Wrong Control strip selected, check code being used.
  • Not enough Leader, strips must have more than 1.25 inches before the first target.
  • Calibration, re-calibrate  With a current calibration strip (less than 18months old),
  • Was the strip inserted in the right direction?  Some strips are not bi-directional.
  • Was the strip aligned with the center diamond? and did it run straight all the way through?
  • Lamp strength? (replacement level is anything below 93%)
  • Motor speed
