Troubleshooting FAQ

Q: GALEP gives a calibration error message on startup.

A: This is bad news: GALEP is defect and has to be sent in to Conitec for repair. During the warranty period, it's free; otherwise order a recalibration service that includes GALEP repair when necessary, and an extension of the warranty period.

Q: The LEDs are blinking strangely on startup.

A. Please find information about the LED codes in the Installation section.

Q. The GALEP software seems to loose the connection to the PC after a couple of minutes with a time-out error when I let it just 'sit' there. I then always need to restart Galep. This is not happening if I keep Galep 'busy', like by reading an EEPROM every 30 seconds.

A. Maybe a software that periodically interrupts the USB connection is running in the background on your PC. An example of such a software is ShrewSoft VPN. Deactivate it and the problem is gone.

Q: I can't program a certain device. I'm using a third party adapter.

A: Adapters from other manufacturers are often wired differently, or have a different capacity on the pins. To be on the safe side, use a Conitec adapter.
