Troubleshooting

Most Target error message appear on the accompanying monitor or in the "Target Warning" column in Orion on the Range Control tab.

"Could not find the alignment shape"

This error appears on the monitor after the accompanying target tries and calibrates. The calibration process has two parts, first is to find the alignment shape on the aiming mask (the black rectangle), second to find the aiming bull. This error message is when the alignment shape could not be found. There are three primary reasons this could happen.

1.An aiming mask is either not loaded into the target, or loaded incorrectly.

2.The aiming mask is shot up, always be sure to load a new one.

3.The camera is out of focus. To check, change the target to practice mode open Live View. Visit Focusing the NC Model Target Camera, to learn how to focus.
If the camera has to be refocused, the camera will have to be re-calibrated.

"Could not find the Aiming Bull"

This error appears on the monitor after the accompanying target tries and calibrates. The calibration process has two parts, first is to find the alignment shape on the aiming mask, second to find the aiming bull. This error message is when the aiming bull could not be found. Note, by getting this message, the alignment shape was found and the steps to troubleshoot alignment shape errors do not have to be taken. There are three primary reasons the aiming bull could not be found.

1.The wrong aiming bull was loaded. For example, if you are trying to shoot an air rifle course of fire and have instead an air pistol aiming mask loaded.

2.The aiming mask was loaded incorrectly.

3.The aiming mask is shot up, always be sure to load a new one.

Target reports erroneous Frame Hits (FH) when shot

False frame hits can be reported, when the target is shot, if the camera is not focused or the paper strip stops advancing. Check the following to investigate.

1.Check the focus of the camera, to do so put the target to practice mode and open Live View. Visit Focusing the NC Model Target Camera, to learn how to focus.

2.Run the Self-Diagnostic routine on the target. This will attempt to re-find the alignment shape.

3.Check the paper strip is advancing.

"The Target is possessed by the 9.9 demon"

Vanquish the demon by shooting more tens.
