    It's a "Auto Zero Calibration" error. It appears after a certain time while AZR cannot perform "auto calibration". You can run calibration manually. The instructions are Alcosmart operating manual. If it would'nt work, you should send the device to Germany for repairing and it usually takes two weeks.

    Hi Sir Mathew,
    Apparently we don't have operating manual for Alcosmart only manual for basic operations and parts catalog. Do you have a manual of it -- can you teach me how to do it manually?
    Thanks & Regard.

    If the Alcosmart still working, let it work.
    If it is making some problems, you can make auto zero calibration (as Mathew said),
    It is easy to do, but you should have the instruction or service manual to do it.
    You have to press up and down buttons at the same time for about 5 seconds, then go to auto zero calibration choice then follow the instructions.
    Some times it does not work .

    hello, i have a problem with technotrans beta d 40L. the alcohol controller does not suck in alcohol. the controller is CC4.3-B .
    the suction solenoid valve works very well but no alcohol. the pressure of the pump Do is 0,6 Bar, is it correct?
    I cleaned the pump filter and the line filter.
    please can you help me?
    thank you

    Hello

    The correct D pressure is around 1 bar .
    If your solenoid valve open and you have no alcool , so the ventury aspiration is not working properly .
    Chek and clean the ejector tube , and be sure your black alcool hose is not defect !!

    Have you managed to do the calibration? The method is keep the up and down keys together, first the screen changes and it shows you some values and you still have to keep the buttons pressed for a bit longer you can then enter the autozero calibration, after a restart of the unit it wont allow you to start the calibration for 30 minutes there is also a counter that counts down the time. But the calibration failed for a reason, if you manage to start the calibration manually a 600 second cycle starts and you should see the alcohol percent decrease if it doesn't decrease the alcosmart is faulty, keep and eye on the timer when it gets to 420 that is when the alcohol percentage should be at the lowest, usually at this point even the manual calibration fails, note down the alcohol value at 420 seconds and I will tell you what to do next.
