MPA100 Tech Support

If you are experiencing trouble with your MPA100 you can either send your instrument back to SRS for service, or you can try and fix the problem yourself. If you wish to send the instrument back now click here.

If you wish to try and fix the problem yourself, the following troubleshooting guide may help you.

Troubleshooting Guide

Symptom 1 — Instrument is unresponsive to front-panel touch functions

Try a power-up reset. Turn the power off, then while touching the screen, turn the power back on. After two seconds stop touching the screen. If this doesn't correct the problem the instrument will need to come back to SRS for service. Click here to get an RMA number.

Symptom 2 — Instrument melts substances but can't determine the melting point

With the MPA100 software, you won't see the capillaries in the software. The instrument will not be able to calculate melting point.

Most likely the camera board (PCB) in your MPA needs replacing. The replacement part to order is CAMERA-BRD. You can order it by clicking here.
