New Training video - Agilent 7890 Error - Instrument Not Receptive


Here we will look at common issue when users add an Agilent 7890 Gas Chromatograph to Chromperfect.

When the instrument status shows Awaiting Download and the user attempts to download a method with an M78 instrument setpoint file, an error is displayed "Error reported by the acquisition service, Download attempt failed, Instrument not receptive".

This is a unique anomaly for the Agilent 7890. The fix is very straightforward, we simply have to download a simple method without an m78 file, the status will change to Ready and then you can download you method which contains the m78 and instrument control settings.

This short video details the issue and the solution,.

This user training/support video uses Chromperfect version 8 with Windows 11, different versions and operating systems may behave differently. Chromperfect is the leading independent chromatography data system and chromatography software developer, based in Denville, NJ USA.
