I have an HP6038A Option 001 power supply. The Option 001 means that it has only a blank front panel.

Today, I was teaching myself how to program the power supply with direct commands. I entered the command SYST:LANG TSML and then I lost all communication with the unit.

I verified that my 82357B USB interface was still okay and working by testing it on other GPIB equipment.

Then I started scouring the net for anything to help me. I found this thread in which the OP discovered that his power supply was readdressed to Primary = 0 and Secondary = 15.

"Hey! That's probably what happened to my 6038a!" I said.

He solved his problem by using the front panel controls and re-configuring the primary and secondary GPIB addresses.

I would like to do the same thing BUT I have no front panel controls!

ARRRRRRGGG!!!!!!

Would anyone have a clever solution to this challenge?
