Go Direct® SpectroVis® Plus Spectrophotometer (GDX-SVISPL)
Please read the user manual for general usage: Specifications and User Guide

TROUBLESHOOTING
-Primary Test: Are you using Logger Pro v3.14, LabQuest App v2.7.2, or Spectral Analysis v4.4 (or newer)?
-Secondary Test: If you are collecting data via USB, you do not need the battery installed or the AC power cable connected. Removing both of these will likely solve most issues.

In general, we recommend removing the GDX-SVISPL battery if you are not using the device wirelessly. The AC power adapter is only needed to charge the battery and is not required for operation.
