Note: This can be checked by selecting the Device Options menu.

  1. Make sure the power cable to the Co-Pilot has been connected properly to the power supply and the power supply has been turned on.
  2. Make sure there are no loose connections in all attached cabling (insure all connections are secure).
  3. Check to see if both green and red lights are blinking continuously on the Co-Pilot.
  4. Make sure the Co-Pilot software has been updated to the latest version.
    1. To check go to Device Options, select Device Update and select Co-Pilot from the list of tools. Check and see what the available version and current versions are. If different software should be updated.
