Hi Luke
It's a little late in the day for the UK folk but if you can setup TeamViewer and pm me the login I can take a look and update UK service as to what might be the best course of action.
Best regards

Subject: [ISOGEOCHEM] Sercon 20-20 Misbehaving Ion Repeller

Hello All,


I am having a bit of an issue with my Sercon 20-20. It turns 23 years of age this month so I fully appreciate that it may have a few ‘quirks’ by now. After having issues with the focus amongst many other issues I have changed the source board, the digital board and the adapter board in the last month or so and I still have an issue with the ion repeller. When set at ‘0’ I get a set point reading of ‘6.77’ and an actual of ‘16.54’, I changed the setting in the software to ‘-2’ and the set points and actuals did not change. I have checked for continuity within the source itself and from the source board to the source and there is no issue. I am at a loose end now…help me…any ideas?
