    I have a couple of eDLTs on my system which work fine and have bought a few more to replace my older DLTs however, when i remove the DLT and plug in the new eDLT it does not power up.

    If I swap out a working eDLT with a new one, the new one powers up. Confused? I am.

    Voltages look good. New flylead continuity is good with no shorting.

    I even tried to put one where i have a B/W screen and it would not work.

    Dates on the eDLTs are Q3 2015.

    All advice gratefully received.

    With you commenting that the new eDlt works in the position where the existing one is and not elsewhere, I presume you used the fly lead installed when connecting to postion where the existing one is.
    Therefore check the flylead again in particular compare the polarity marking against the installed one. It may be incorrectly labeled

    Perfect. The Flylead labels are printed upside down!
    Works a treat now.

    Many thanks Colin.
