SLICER and LAMP ERRORS…

In the beginning of the night I had the same problem reported on 2019-11-03. Humberto Orrego and I rebooted the motor control and the problem was solved (that we though…). Unfortunately I got the same problem, over and over again. Every time that I had this problem, it was solved rebooting the motor control.

At 03:50 UT an extra problem was added to this unfortunate night, this time I got a "LAMP ERROR" and from that moment the lamp did not work anymore, I tried to find the origin of the problem without successful results. After of about one hour trying to solve this problem I decided to continue the night without lamp, even I took the lamps, these are just "bias" because the lamp was off. BTW: the problem started with the lamp just after LEHPM2-0783.

As a resume I observed the whole night with SLICER error and from 03:50 UT without LAMP.

TELOPS: Please check these issues.
