If the protection function works and causes hindrance
to troubleshooting, cancel the protection function by
the procedure below, and it will be possible to enter the
self-diagnostic function mode. (The protection functions
other than the excess current detect function and PS3
protection function will be disabled.)
While pressing the “AI” and “INFO (WPS)” keys, press the
“MAIN ZONE ” key to turn on the power and keep pressing
those 2 keys and “MAIN ZONE ” key for 3 seconds or
The self-diagnostic function mode is activated with the
protection functions disabled.
In this mode, the “SLEEP” segment of the FL display flashes
to indicate that the mode is self-diagnostic function mode
with the protection functions disabled.
But you should understand all risks of this operations.
