Key "wasteX" error - i5

Has anyone ever encountered this error while attempting to initialize their instrument? It occurs right before the span moves over to the liquid waste position to prime the syringes. The instrument was used earlier in the day without issue. As far as I could tell nothing had been changed with the deck definition. I power cycle the instrument which didn’t resolve the issue. Finally I opened a method file and initialized again and it worked.

Similar error. Need change TR1 position.


  1. Modify the instrument file by using either the weekly or monthly backup.

  2. Attempt to relocate Span 8 away from TR1.
