    I'm showing an error code '625' in my HP 33120A. I use it only for analog testing and repair. Do I need to be concerned about this error code ?

    What does the book show that error code is for?

    As long as it's functioning it should be OK.

    Thanks to 'GB, the service manual may be consulted.

    On page 81, it tells us that Self-Test Error Message 625 is "I/O Processor Not Responding".

    The function of the I/O processor is described on page 85;

    "The ground reference section uses a processor configured as a slave to the
    main CPU. This processor establishes external I/O communication with
    the main CPU through a bi-directional, optically isolated, serial
    communications link. The earth referenced processor controls low-level
    GPIB (IEEE-488) and RS-232 interface operation. The ground referenced,
    rear panel external trigger input uses a dedicated optical isolator to
    couple a trigger signal to the main CPU in the floating section".

    You are most probably not using GPIB or the like so there should be no problem.
