Guided Fault Finding
The front of the tester is the screen which is used for information purposes and for communication with the mechanic.
The graphic displays on the screen are referred to as "masks". They display all information and functions of the tester.
The tester is operated using the touchscreen which covers the complete surface. This detects the pressure applied via your finger or other objects, and thus replaces a mouse and keyboard.
A text or navigation element provided for con- trolling the tester can be recognized by a change in colour. The selected control element is only activated when the pressure produced by touching is removed.
Do not use any pointed or hot objects to operate the screen, or any objects which leave colours behind. Such objects damage the screen.
The tester switches to power saving mode if it is not used for several minutes. When the screen is touched, the mask that was last accessed is displayed again.
