I bought a new HPS140MK2 a couple of weeks ago. It worked well since yesterday. I did not use it for like 3 days, It was lying next to my development table. The place where it always was, nothing dangerous or something. Didn’t throw it on the ground or left it switched on for a long time.
The behaviour now is: swichting on - shows boot screen (firmware 1636) - shows oscilloscope screen a for a quick moment - seems to crash - shows boot screen again - and again - and again.
sometimes it will stay at the oscilloscope screen - but then shows a DC voltage of some Volts, like 10 Volts, 6 Volts, the value is different each time but then stays. Event when there is nothing connected - no probe, nothing.
when i try to measure something it seems to add up to the already shown value on the screen.
I was thinking about just replacing the batteries, but didn’t have some at hand at the moment. Could batteries be the cause for this behaviour?
thanks a lot
