Micrologic on Powerpact H, J, L breaker comes up with four dashes when powered with Pocket Tester

Issue:
Micrologic display shows dashed lines instead of powering up with the Pocket Tester.

Product Line:
Circuit Breakers

Environment:
Powerpact H, J, L breakers with A or E Micrologic trip units

Resolution:
To use the pocket tester, first ensure there is zero current flow through the breaker.  If it is installed, turn the breaker OFF.  Ensure the batteries in the Pocket Tester are full strength (or new), then turn the pocket tester ON before plugging it into the trip unit.  This will ensure a proper power-up sequence and the trip unit should energize and be functional.  If following these steps doesn't work, replace the breaker.
