Power cycle the instrument by shutting off the circuit breaker on the left hand side of the instrument and waiting 30 seconds before powering back on.


The software is telling the instrument to set the nebulizer flow to a certain value during startup but the instrument is unable to do so due to a lockup on the Flow Control board. Since you can't reach into the instrument to just reset the flow control board, the entire instrument must be shut off for 30s in order to rest the Flow Control board.
