Hi Noe,

Error 290 is a measuring module error and you should contact your dealer to resolve.

Hi Davis,

The error 224 with the X4 is indicating a communication error, and the remedy is for the user to perform the reset function with the unit. If this does not allow the X4 to operate without getting the error the unit will need to be replaced.

Al intentar medir inclinación siempre sale error 156
Que está ocurriendo
En el A8 no significa inclinación transversal excesiva eso sería error 155 el 156 que me sale, no aparece en el manual

Hi Arturo, error 156 is Transverse tilt > 10°. If you are unable to resolve this code you will want to submit a support ticket on MyWorld so that a specialist can work through this with you.

What do error codes 52 and 84 of a Leica geodimeter (here TC 403) mean ???
I would be happy if I got an answer!!!
Sincerely yours

Hi Mohammed,
If the error is not resolved by measuring from a shorter distance or from using a target plate, I would recommend submitting a support ticket on MyWorld by selecting "Get Support."

A technical specialist will be in touch and will able to help resolve this issue.

I have the D5 model and recently it will not read distances and will only display 255 error. it was working and suddenly stopped. Is there a reset on this or is it just dead?

Hi David,
This can vary case by case. I would recommend submitting a ticket on MyWorld:
select "Get Support" and a technical rep will be in touch with you asap. They will be able to provide you guidance with your D5.

Errore 255 nella lettura della distanza ... cosa fare ..?

Bonjour, j'ai un code Erreur 224. Tout fonctionne SAUF le laser. J'ai lu qu'un reset était possible. Est ce vrai
? L'appareil n'est jamais tombé et n'a subi aucun dommage . Merci

Hi there, I would recommend reaching out to whomever you purchased the device from. A reset is possible in most cases, but it will depend on the model/age/make of the device. You can also submit a ticket via MyWorld in order to speak with a technical representative who will have insight on the error code and can help with the reset.

Older model. Error code i255. I stopped using it for about a year because of the error code. One day I put in new batteries and it worked. No batteries were in during non use. Used it for about 10 months and because batteries were low I replaced them. Now it again only shows i255. tried new batteries and cleaned the lens. no change.
Any recommendations?
