-If the LED indicator does not turn on when the Laser ON-OFF/Reset switch is flipped up, make sure both interlocks are engaged and that the COARSE CURRENT knob is turned up at least half a turn. If the current is set to 0 mA when you engage the Laser ON switch, the system detects an open circuit (no current flowing) and indicates an error.  Due to the "soft start" circuitry employed in the current source, you may safely leave the current at its operating setpoint when engaging and disengaging the Laser ON switch.+If the LED indicator does not turn on when the Laser ON-OFF/Reset switch is flipped up, make sure both interlocks are engaged and that the COARSE CURRENT knob is turned up at least half a turn.

 If the LED indicator turns on for ~5 seconds and then turns off, check your laser diode connection to see if it is open (or if the diode is backwards). If the LED indicator turns on for ~5 seconds and then turns off, check your laser diode connection to see if it is open (or if the diode is backwards).
