im hoping this is in the right section...
When i switched on my sled today after lunch my bubble had disappeared. The assistants had been moving my rig around so its possible they knocked it and switched it off by mistake but...now i cant switch it back on again.
Ill be really honest here and say that ive only switched off the bubble once in the last couple of years and now i cant figure out how to switch it on again - my memory obviously isn't what it used to be. Im out of the country and my manual is at home and no button or combination of buttons seem to do it - can anyone help before i have to embarrass myself further and email Greg?
On the off chance that there is a problem with it does anyone know if there is a built in reset that i could try? Ive never had any problems with it before...:(
Thanks for any help,

From the PDL Users Manual...

Assuming it's plugged in and you have a video signal and power on. Press the SELECT button, on screen text should say LEVEL on the top line. If it doesn't, press the SELECT button until you get to the page that says LEVEL.
The bottom line of the text box should say ON. If not, press either the UP or DOWN keys. This will toggle the level on or off.

If that doesn't work call Greg: 1-805-531-0014

Good Luck

Thanks Erwin - turns out there was a problem with it and i needed to do a factory reset. another round of praise for Greg's superb customer service - he was on the phone in a jiffey and i had my PDL back online 1 minute or so later.
