We have at our campus a Varian 3900 GC; this apparatus is 12 years old and it is surely almost without use.
It gets stuck at "initializing", and does nothing more even if you let it continue over an hour.
Last month, we could enter to the main menu and operate it with a pc (directly connected). It showed battery problem and we changed it (CR2302). However, from that day it has not been possible to enter system again, it only gets stuck in the "initializing" phase.
Do you have any recommendations so that we could enter the system again? When in the initializing phase it gets stuck and it doesn't allow us to do anything else, no pc connection neither main board works.
Thanks in advance for your attention, hoping for a reply.
*It has an autosampler attached to it and this part never works, it only has a laser beam on but the "on" led never works, only tilts when turned on. Reply to Stadke
