I am completely baffled as to why my 5890II/5971A/G1034C system has suddenly stopped acquiring data when the start run button is pushed on the GC.
The program and GC/MS all seem to communicate well (can see MS data on screen when running air and water checks, and GC will load a program) but when start button is pushed, the run time on acquisition panel remains at 0 mins and the EMV adjust box is grayed out. The GC ramps as if all is well.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm a retired organic chemist just using this wonderful device for qualitative work and don't have a budget for a newer model.....
