Determining the Unit ID
Each Color Cue®2.1 has a unique 7-character ID. This ID defines the information on the unit configuration, micro code ID, etc. You may need this ID, especially when you contact your dealer or the manufacturer with any questions. To determine the unit ID, turn the power off and back on. The unit ID will appear in the third screen after the unit is turned on. To pause the display, press the menu key as soon as the display appears. Pressing the menu key again will continue the start-up cycle.

Cleaning the Aperture s Measurement Port
There is a recessed clear window inside the port. When the instrument is new, this window is so clear that it is almost invisible. You should always be able to see the sensor (a gray square in the center of a round ring) and the light emitting diodes (rectangular boxes inside the edge). Examine the sample port from the bottom of the instrument to see if there is visible dust or dirt. The instrument’s measurements may be affected if this area contains any foreign materials. Extreme care must be taken not to damage the actual dam (black ring) or the sensor itself. Only the clear window surrounding the opening for the sensor/ring should be cleaned.
