Model: 14000 Series Transmitters
All or some of the below symptoms may be present.
Time and date is not correct on the Transmitter front display.
Red LED is flashing on the Transmitter front display.
GPS communication symbol may not be displayed on the Transmitter front display.
GPS communication parentheses symbol may not be displayed on the Transmitter front display.
This may be due to the Transmitter switch position(s), bad or lacking information from the GPS Receiver.
Verify the GPS communication symbol and parentheses are present.
Check dip switch #1, #2, #3, or #4 to verify they are in the correct position.
Switch #1 sets the Daylight Saving Time Calendar. UP position: set to the new Daylight Saving Time calendar of 2007. DOWN position: set the old schedule before 2007.
Switch #2 sets the direction of UTC offset. UP position for U.S. and Canada, DOWN position for Europe.
Switch #3 sets the automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustment. UP position for automatic Daylight Saving Time changes. DOWN position to bypass Daylight Saving Time adjustments.
Switch #4 sets the clock display on the Transmitter. UP position for 12-hour display. DOWN position for 24-hour display.
Verify the time zone selector is set to the correct position. Use a small slotted screwdriver to adjust the rotary switch.
“4” for Atlantic Time Zone, “5” for Eastern Time Zone, “6” for Central Time Zone, “7” for Mountain Time Zone, “8” for Pacific Time Zone, “9” for Alaska Time Zone, “A” for Hawaii Time Zone
Do NOT adjust Rotary Switch A which is the Channel Switch. It's set to the frequency specified on the US: FCC/ Canada: ISED application and is factory preset to the FM frequency on which the Transmitter will broadcast. A 14000 series Transmitter has 16 available channels.
If dip switch #1 is in the correct position and ST or DT is displayed behind the time and not ST+ or DT+, the Transmitter may have the wrong EPROM chip in it.
If everything looks normal on the front display, but the Channel Number is not displayed, power cycle the Transmitter. As the screen comes back up, watch the upper left hand corner of the screen for either “No call sign”, or "4 letters and 3 numbers" which is the Transmitter’s call sign. If “No call sign” is displayed, the Transmitter cannot broadcast and requires configuration.
If all switch settings are correct, the GPS symbol and parentheses are both displayed, and the time and/or date are still not correct, it may be due to a bad GPS cable connection or a bad GPS Receiver.
Other than the switch settings or the loss of GPS signal, the Transmitter should never display the wrong time or date. The Transmitter's time is set by the time signal received from the GPS Receiver.
If the GPS communicate symbol and/or parentheses is not displayed, see topic Red LED flashing and Transmitter GPS communication symbol is not displayed on front display
If the switch settings are wrong, correct them, and then power cycle the Transmitter.
If the GPS communication symbol and parentheses are showing and all switch settings are correct, and the time and/or date are still wrong, replace the GPS Receiver and cable.
If ST or DT is displayed instead of the ST+ or DT+, the Transmitter needs a new EPROM chip with the new Daylight saving Calendar. You can temporarily fix the time by changing the time zone.
If you have determined the Transmitter has lost the Call Sign, contact Primex Technical Support.
If the switch settings are correct, the GPS Receiver and cabling have been replaced, and the time and/or date is still not correct, the Transmitter is required to be replaced.
