** Log out of the DAQ machine, and use the command @kticket@ to pick up a fresh kerberos ticket with the special principal that we use for the DAQ: @lariat/lariat@lariat-daq00.fnal.gov@FNAL.GOV@. Check for this success with @klist@. Then log back in to the DAQ machine and start a new run.
66 187 Jason St. John
* DAQ fails with @ERROR: ReadRegisgter ACQUISITION_STATUS CAEN_DGTZ_CommError BoardId 0@  wait 2 minutes, then try to start again.
67 187 Jason St. John
** Try issuing the command @lariatReset 0 1@ waiting more then 5 seconds, and trying again.
68 187 Jason St. John
This command is appropriate when one sees any type of "CAEN_DGTZ" error.  This command will NOT help the persistent ports error.
69 187 Jason St. John
* DAQ fails with @Found persistent communication port still open@
70 187 Jason St. John
** Wait 8 minutes for the ports to clear, then try again.
71 224 Pawel Kryczynski
* DAQ fails with "An exception occurred when trying to send a message to ..." 
72 223 Pawel Kryczynski
** Check that the terminal you are running the DAQ from is indeed lariat-daq00 (or a screen within it).  Output from @klist@ should show the default principal as "lariat/lariat/lariat-cr-02.fnal.gov@FNAL.GOV" or similar if running from a screen off lariat-daq00 from the ROC-West station.
73 242 Jason St. John
** Run number failed increment or has reset to a low number such as 1: Stop the run and then on the DAQ terminal edit @/opt/lariat-online/config/runNumber.dat@ to correct the run number. Start new run after.

h3. Other failures:

* If the DAQ is having trouble talking to the crates, try issuing the command @lariatReset 0 1@ waiting more then 5 seconds, and trying again.
78 187 Jason St. John
This command is appropriate when one sees any type of "CAEN_DGTZ" error.  This command will NOT help the persistent ports error.

* The readback voltage doesn't make any sense, is of the wrong polarity and/or is way above the nominal value, but just for a fraction of time.
108 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
This is most likely just a glitch in the readout, please ignore if it happens once or twice. If it happens too frequently, set voltage to 0, turn off the power supply and report it. 
109 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
110 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
* The readback voltage doesn't make any sense, is of the wrong polarity and is way above the nominal value, and the value is stable~ish (you might see small fluctuations over time)
111 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
This is a typical symptom of a bad power supply. Try to set it back to 0, turn it off and disconnect the SHV cable. If the readout values remain the same, it confirms there is a hardware problem. Please contact Brian Fellenz for repairs if we don't have a spare for that unit.
112 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
113 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
FYI, the power supplies have a given voltage rating and cannot physically deliver voltages beyond that range. Also, their polarities cannot be swapped so if you see the wrong sign on the readout ie a positive voltage on a negative power supply or vice versa, then you can be sure the unit is broken or you have a problem somewhere else in the system.

- Bias voltage rating: - 500 V for the shield and induction planes, + 500 V for the collection plane.

116 253 Flor de maria Blaszczyk

* Something went wrong during a ramp, I need to turn off the supply!
120 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
There is an interlock that prevents you from using the normal fast controls on the power supply when a ramp is on-going. First, *stop the ramp by clicking on the STOP button*. This will stop the ramp and clear the interlock. If you need to go back to 0 quickly, use the fast controls to set the voltage to 0 and *don't forget to turn off the supply!*
121 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
122 230 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
*Even if the controls appear not to respond, set the voltage to 0 and turn the supply off*. Contact Charlie Briegel first and describe the problem in detail. If you can and if it's safe, disconnect the SHV cable from the power supply. If the readback values remain the same, then the power supply is broken.

* Anecdotal evidence has shown that analog noise on the TPC wire readout channels can be 
140 217 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
alleviated by power cycling the TPC electronics: ASICs and Warm Receiver/Drivers
141 219 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
* You can remotely power cycle the TPC electronics.  Log onto lariat-gateway00.fnal.gov with X-forwarding enabled, type "firefox", and go to http://lariat-pdu02.fnal.gov.  Usename "ftbf" (password posted on whiteboard in MC7).  Choose the *CYCLE* option, which will automatically give a 60

* Further important informations can be found on the white board in MC-CR.

* This mechanism is controlled by a smart power distribution unit (PDU) located under the 
145 220 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
TPC electronics power supply near the cryostat in the enclosure.   Due to electrical safety 
146 220 Flor de maria Blaszczyk
rules you must *NOT* use any of the other outlets on this PDU.  Do *NOT* remove the protective
