If you run the test and you have any failures,  the failures will be sent to your log file. Select L again will turn off this feature and  the LOG at the bottom right should disappeared.

To edit the log file, make sure that log file is turned off. Now LOG should not be at  the bottom right corner. Select Data from Wintos Window, then click on Log management.  Select the correct name of your log file, by click on the file twice, or type in the name  at File Name. Click on EDIT. Now you are in your log file, with brief editor. Alt X to get  exit, then Y to exit without saves, W is to exit & save. N is not to exit the log  file.

To Adjust Print Out

Your print out to the screen and to the printer should be already set up, but for some  reason you would like to change the setting, you can do the following:

  1. Load your program per above instruction.
  2. Click on DATA then select DISPLAY SETTINGS (this is to set display at the screen). Now  display screen should be open. Make sure ACTIVATED and PASS FAIL MODE have a mark at their  boxes, if not just click on those boxes. Now you can adjust TAB STOP by typing in the tab  numbers you want. NOTE: Tab stop always should have a number in its box.
  3. Now click on OK to save the changes you just made.
  4. To change printer setting (after program is loaded), you also need to select DATA then  click on PRINTER SETTINGS. Printer set up page should now be open, if and only if the mark  for PASS AND FAIL MODE is not there, then select it. Now you can enter in any number for  the TAB STOP to change your setting for the printer print out.
  5. Click on OK after you are done to save your setting.

NOTE: If PASS RESULTS is turned on by having a check mark next to it (in either DISPLAY  or PRINTER SETTINGS) then all measurements (Passing & failing data) will be displayed  on the printer or display when you run the test. Usually this feature should not be on.



Nail #’s:

Click on the Scan Pin from the pull down menu (it is the icon with a white  circle, next to the yellow triangle icon). Scan Pin can also be selected from FUNCTIONS at  the pull down menu. This function activates the external probe for nail identification, by  touching the scan pin’s probe to the nail you want to identify. The nail number will  be printed on the screen. If speakers are connected to the computer a voice will announce  the test point number.


Click on FUNCTIONS at the pull down menu then select Single  Step. Select View at tool bar, then click on On Line Edit to see the measurement of the  part. You can select Stop (to get out of the test), previous item, go to next item, go to  the next failure (this will stop to view at the next failure), or go to the end.

Note: When you click on (go to the next failure) and it changes from a  resistor to a capacitor, you should close On Line Edit, then re-open it. This will help to  get the pin numbers of the capacitor.  Also short and open tests are not editable  from this screen as well as diode or IC tests.
