    York Optiview problems

    I'm being tasked to troubleshoot a York Optiview Display on a York YT which will not boot up. Several techs have taken a stab at this before me and they have replaced sundry parts they thought were the cause of the malfunction. I understand the flash memory cards have been replaced twice, the inverter supply has been replaced along with a generic off the shelf display screen and bulb, which I am told is a York equivalent by my stupidvisor.

    I haven't made it to the job yet, but if anyone knows what I should look for on arrival, I'd sure appreciate it. Changing out all the guts in this panel would be a pricey proposition, but may be necessary given the job history.

    Thumbs up

    Make sure all changes that have been are for this machine. York has several different types of boards made buy different people on there optiview. Although same machine, just different manufacturers on software parts. York went with best price at build time on machines. If you continue to have problems with this optiview contact Hans Wile at York Factory in Pa. This guy is supersharp and knows these optiviews better than anyone.

    and this board has helped again. i had an optiview tonight that would not reboot after a power failure. after checking all other parts(power supply, boards,)I killed power at the VSD, pulled the flash card, reapplied power, and the damn thing came on. reinserted card and now am waiting for oil temp to return.

    Had a problem with a YK a while back optiview goes dead same thing people were replacing boards , power supplys , flash cards , etc. nothing fixed the problem very intermitent , after looking at this thing for over and over found the molex plug out of the power supply with 2 female pins instead of male to female after repairing problem is now fixed. not saying that this is your issue but give it a real good look over.
    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    25 years ago we had Bob Hope , Steve Jobs , and Johnny Cash today we have no Hope no Jobs and no Cash !
    I can fix broke but i can't fix stupid !

    Ok Guys, I have a new unused York YT 600 Ton Chiller R-123 1997 Vintage.

    I bought it with no control panel and no starter. I have a new 2007 Optiview control panel 371-02486-101. I powered it up and it said it was selected for R-22, what do I need to do to convert it to R-123.

    I also have a new 2009 Optispeed VSD503 K-46 P/N: 371-03789-702.

    Does the K in the P/N mean it is for a YK?

    If it is for a YK, do I need to change the Eproms?

    I know that I need to get a ACC Board for the optiview control panel, do I need to get one for a YT or YK?

    What Transducers will I need to change?

    Thanks for any help anyone can give me!!

    Brett

    You're not asking for help - this falls more under the heading of consulting. Send a PO# and we'll get started!
