Ensure planter diagnostic information is good and find status updates.

Updated July 27, 2020

Diagnose screen

The Diagnose Menu is the primary location for trouble shooting issues related to the operation of the 20|20 system itself and all products configured on the monitor. The schematic on this page shows each component including the Base Module that the display screen connects to. Each product that is configured is displayed along with a row unit showing a drawing of the product(s). Additionally, there is planter bar at the top of the screen displaying the health of each row.

Color legend

Color Meaning
Green The system is working correctly and communications are good.
Yellow A device or subcomponent is not running at 100 percent.
Red A device has failed, or is expected, but not detected.
White A device is detected, but is not expected.
Black A row has been disabled in the planter configuration.
Gray A device is being detected, updating firmware, or unreachable.

All systems should be Green before using the system in the field. The color of each system on the top level diagnose page will be reflected by any issues within the system. For example if there is an issue on one row, that row number will be a color other than green at the top of the page and the system (e.g. vDrive, DeltaForce, etc….) will also be red. Touch on the system name to view the row by row level two details page. Anything on the level two detail pages that is working correctly (indicated by a green color) will be marked by a different color that fits the color legend. If a system is green on the top level page, then everything will also be green on the level two diagnose page for that system. For more information on product specific diagnose page information page, see the operation guide for that specific product.

For assistance with diagnosing issues that are indicated on the diagnose page, see the troubleshooting guides in the Dealer Service Manual.

The Navigation Menu on the right hand side of the screen offers additional options within the Diagnose Menu.
