20 Most Recent Motic BA300 Microscope Questions & Answers


Are you sure that the lid safety interlock switch isn't damaged/dirty? If the centrifuge can't detect that the lid is closed it will never start. Sometime it just needs an extra push down on the lid.

It sounds like either the bulb is loose or the connection between the bulb socket and a wire is loose. To check both, Loosen the screw knob on the underside of microscope and open the panel to expose the bulb. Use a small screwdriver to loosen the screws holding (the two screws closest to the bulb) the prongs of the halogen bulb. Note that the prongs of the bulb are held in place by small brass plates which shift slightly when the screws are loosened. Remove the old bulb. Important: Do not touch the new halogen bulb with bare hands. Wear gloves or hold the bulb using tissue or lens paper. Body oils may damage the halogen bulb. Insert prongs of replacement bulb into top of socket (above the brass plate) and tighten screws slightly. (The brass plates will move up to hold the prongs in place.) Close door and hand tighten the thumbscrew knob.

The error E61 indicates that your water pump has failed or is not active. You should check the pump and replace it if needed. You should also check the steam generator sensor and replace it if needed.

If this is a microscope, the part you are referring to is the stage control. You can get the part from C&A Scientific at http://www.cnascientific.com or by calling 703.330.1413
