  • Causa
    There is the potential for a short circuit between the pcb (printed circuit board) and heater transistor or a malfunction of the transistor with the sysmex cs-5100. this may lead to smoke from the instrument, and in a worst case scenario, the overcurrent damaging the pcb, which may lead to a melting of the transistors until the instrument is powered off. this failure mode will occur if all of the conditions below are met:- pcb protection component blocks overcurrent by the short circuit- pcb protection component has a breakdown after a certain period with the instrument turned on- the overcurrent is throughout the pcb, which may lead to burn out unless the instrument is powered off.
