*OPC? command timeout with N5222B

Question asked by qanopus on Aug 30, 2018

I am using NI-Max to communicate with my instrument. Somehow the instrument is in a state wherein the synchronization command "*OPC?\n" always times out. Apparently the instrument is waiting for some parallel command to finish but I am unsure how this happened. 

 

I can issue a "*IDN?\n" query and the I get the expected result, identifying the instrument. 

 

Is there anyway to "reset" the instrument? I tried the "*CLS" command but this did not work.
