        Data I/O is lying to you, or the person responding to your question was ill-informed.

        DIO is, unfortunately, well on their way to becoming the Microsoft of device programmers in that they have maintenance information available, but they do not believe in releasing it or doing anything else to support self-maintained programmer owners. They've gotten excessively greedy in recent times, and they want EVERYthing to come in for service.

        How do I know they're shining you on? Because I have a maintenance manual for the earlier Unisites. I picked it up during a scrounge run in the Bay Area several years ago.

        If you want to try and bamboozle them, ask about the availability of part number 972-0014-003. It may have been superseded by a later edition.

>I am getting "waveform Generator Failure" upon bootup.

        If you cannot get DIO to cooperate, manual-wise, I believe I have a spare WG board, still attached to a Unisite rear panel. I could probably be convinced to part with it for a small fee.

        Happy hunting.
