Cln Message - Clean
When a Seed Rate sensor can't count the seeds properly, Cln followed by the Seed Rate sensor number is displayed three times; the audible alarm will sound. When a Cln alarm occurs, look for a complete blockage at the opener of the identified Seed Rate sensor or buildup on the indicated Seed Rate sensor eyes.

Err Message - Error
If a complete loop of Seed Rate sensors is not reported to the Monitor Head, Err followed by the Seed Rate sensor number not reporting to the Monitor Head is displayed; the audible alarm will sound. The Err message remains until a complete loop of Seed Rate sensors is established. When an Err message occurs, look for a disconnected Sensor Loop cable, Seed Rate sensor or Extension cable at the identified Seed Rate sensor location.

Monitor Head
Situation:When the power button is pressed the display remains blank, and no button lights come on.
Solution:
1. Check the power cable is connected correctly
2. Check for 12 volts at the red wire, and ground at the black wire
3. IF there is power, and the Monitor Head still does not power up, disconnect the Monitor Head power cable from the 12 volt source for 30 seconds then reconnect to reinitialize the Monitor Head
4. Replace the Monitor Head

Situation:None of the buttons on the Monitor Head work
Solution:
1. Check the displayed message. If Err is displayed, this will occur.
2. Disconnect the Monitor Head power cable from the 12 volt source for 30 seconds then reconnect to reinitialize the Monitor Head.
3. Replace the Monitor Head

Situation:The Monitor Head only displays Art then Err1
Solution:
1. Ensure the extension cable plugs have been connected at the hitch. If the Monitor Head does not detect Seed Rate sensors, this will occur.
2. Ensure the Y-cable is still connected to the extension cables coming from the Monitor Head.
3. Ensure the Sensor Loop cables of the Y-cable are connected to the Seed Rate sensors.
4. Bypass the first Seed Rate sensor by connecting the second Seed Rate sensor to the Sensor Loop cable from the Y-cable; the Seed Rate sensor count will be one less. Leave the first Seed Rate sensor disconnected. If the message is no longer displayed, replace the Seed Rate sensor.
5. Connect a Seed Rate sensor directly to the Y-cable. If the message is no longer displayed, replace the Sensor Loop cable.
6. Connect the Y-cable directly to the Monitor Head with a known “good” Seed Rate sensor connected to the Sensor Loop cables of teh Y-cable. If the Monitor Head still only displays Err 1, replace the Monitor Head.
7. Connect the Y-cable to the first extension cable; make sure to reconnect the Monitor Head to the extension cable. If the Monitor Head still only displays Err 1, replace the first extension cable. Continue this process for each Extension cable..

Seed Rate Sensors
Situation: When Block mode is selected the display always shows 0.
Solution:
1. Check the sensitivity value is not zero. If the sensitivity is set to zero, the Seed Rate sensors are disabled.

Situation: The monitor head always displays Cln ad various numbers.
Solution:
1. Note the indicated numbers. The Cln message indicates the Seed Rate sensor eyes are dirty. Clean the indicated Seed Rate sensors with warm water, and a plastic bristle pipe brush.
2. If the Seed Rate sensor still causes a Cln message, replace the Seed Rate sensor.
Note:As a temporary solution, bypass the failed Seed Rate sensor. Unplug the identified Seed Rate sensor, and plug the cables of the sensors before and after together; the Seed Rate sensor count will be one less.

Situation:The Monitor Head always displays Err and a number
Solution:
1. Make note of the identified number. Ensure the Sensor Loop cables in the indicated Seed Rate sensor location are connected correctly
2. Visually inspect the Sensor Loop cables in the indicated Seed Rate sensor location for damage; a pinch, cut, etc. Replace or bypass, if possible, any damaged pieces.
3. Bypass the indicated Seed Rate sensor number. This is done by unplugging the Seed Rate sensor, and plugging the cables of the Seed Rate sensor before and after together; the Seed Rate sensor count will be on less. If normal operations beings, replace the bypassed Seed Rate sensor.
4. If the Err message is still displayed , bypass the Seed Rate sensor before the indicated Seed Rate sensor number. If normal operation begins, replace the Seed Rate sensor.
5. If a Sensor Loop cable connects the two Seed Rate sensors, swap the Sensor Loop cable. If normal operation begins, replace the Sensor Loop cable.

Situation:The Monitor Head indicates a blockage alarm, but the Seed Rate sensor is not blocked.
Solution:
1. Ensure the sensitivity value is set to high.
2. Confirm the indicated Seed Rate sensor location by unplugging the Seed Rate Sensor. The Err message displayed on the Monitor Head should be within one number of the indicated Seed Rate sensor.
3. Clean the indicated Seed Rate sensors with warm water, and a plastic bristle pipe brush.
4. Replace the sensor.
