GEM5000series troubleshooting

Symptom: LSGAM Starts but does not connect

The USB cable may not be plugged in to either the computer or to the instrument.

The USB Cable driver may not be installed.

  1. Cable Verification (open device manager… StartRunMSC)
  2. Expand the Ports Com & LPT section
    1. Plug in or remove the USB cable from either the instrument or the computer. You should see a port named “LANDTEC USB Serial Port (COMxx)” appear and disappear as the cable is plugged in and then removed. “xx” represents the actual COM port number assigned to your instrument. Note: Each 5000 instrument will have a different port number for a given computer.
    2. If the port does NOT appear then ensure the instrument is in “LEGACY” mode by pressing the Menu Key on the instrument, then pressing device options. Within device options choose information. On the information scree press the Left‑Softkey

      to toggle the communications mode between ‘GA5K’ and ‘LEGACY’ until it shows ‘LEGACY’.

    3. If the USB Cable driver has been installed AND you do not have any data in the instrument you can attempt a “hard power off” of the instrument by pressing and holding the power key for approximately 25 seconds until the RED led illuminates above the power button. After restarting the instrument, you will be prompted to enter the date and time. The instrument will be in GA5K mode and will not communicate. It must be reset through the “device settings” menu à Device Information Screen and set to “LEGACY” mode.
  1. On the instrument
    1. Try switching between GM5K & Legacy mode. Then close and re-open LSGAM

Now ensure the instrument is in the main reading screen. Restart LSGAM and attempt a connection to the instrument.

As an alternative to using the USB cable, a Bluetooth connection can be made to the instrument. Please refer to the Instrument Manual for more specifics on using Bluetooth.

The USB Cable driver may not be installed or the cable is not connected to the instrument.

  1. Cable Verification (open device manager… StartàRunàMSC)
  2. Expand the Ports Com & LPT section
    1. Plug in or remove the USB cable. You should see a USB Serial port (COMx) appear and disappear as the cable is plugged in and then removed.
    2. If not, Please see Step 1 above

If the USB Cable driver has been installed AND you do not have any data in the instrument you can attempt a cold start of the instrument.

Warning: A cold start of the instrument will do the following to your instrument:

  • Erase ALL ID’s from the instrument
  • Erase All Readings from the instrument
  • Erase All comments from the instrument
  • Erase All Field Calibration information from the instrument
  • Reset the instrument clock to a default time

To perform the cold start of the instrument. Turn on the instrument, press and hold the number 1 screen after you see the logo appear. Wait about 1 second, release the number 1 key. The instrument will prompt you for a passcode. Enter in 12345 followed by the enter key. Once complete, you will have an option 1 for Cold Start. Press 1 and then enter to confirm the cold start of the instrument.

Now ensure the instrument is in the main reading screen. Restart LSGAM and attempt a connection to the instrument.

Symptom: LSGAM does not retain saved information.

If you create or edit an ID, project, route, or comment and save the project, LSGAM will indicate that the information is saved. You then close LSGAM and open LSGAM and discover that the newly created information or edit does not show or shows the old information prior to being edited.

This behavior is caused due to security settings on the data files used by LSGAM. Network administrators, Local administrators, and the original person who installed LSGAM will not encounter this behavior but other users of the computer will encounter the behavior because they only have “read” and “execute” permission rather than “change” permission to the folders holding the data.

Solution: Login to the computer as a user with Administrative Permissions. Reset permissions on the LSGAM data folders to allow all users of the computer the ability to have “full control” permission on the directory containing LSGAM data.

For Windows XP, the data is stored in the directory c:documents and settingsall usersapplication dataLANDTEC

For Windows 7 & 8 the data is stored in the directory c:programdataLANDTEC

This example shows the changes for Windows 7 & 8.

Windows Key (

) + R will open the RUN box. Type in the appropriate location depending upon your operating system into the Open line and click OK.

Click OK. The explorer window should open and show you the LANDTEC folder.

Right click on the LANDTEC folder and choose Properties. On the Properties window, select the Security tab and then highlight Users. Now look to see if the Users have a check mark beneath the Allow column for the permissions of “Full control” or “Modify”. If there is NO check mark for Allow click the Edit button.

Click OK. The explorer window should open and show you the LANDTEC folder.

Right click on the LANDTEC folder and choose Properties. On the Properties window, select the Security tab and then highlight Users. Now look to see if the Users have a check mark beneath the Allow column for the permissions of “Full control” or “Modify”. If there is NO check mark for Allow click the Edit button.

Now highlight Users in the “Edit Permissions Window”. Click on the two check boxes under the allow column

Then click the Apply followed by the OK button. The LANDTEC Properties window will then refresh showing dark check marks for “Full Control”, “Modify”, and “Write” permissions. Click OK to complete resetting the permissions.

Restart LSGAM and test that changes are now being saved.

Symptom: LSGAM is connects to instrument in the office but not in the field.

The serial communications driver used by Java is probably missing from the Java installation. This often occurs if installing Java directly from the java website. A copy of the driver is automatically used from LANDTEC’s website when you are connected to the internet so the problem is masked when an internet connection is present. Refer to step 2b above for obtaining the driver and copying it to your computer.

Symptom: LSGAM Starts but an unknown error has occurred.
