81663A doesn't power up in 8163A

Hi

I have a 81663A which is a known working unit but in my 8163A (SW Rev 5.01) the laser will NOT power up when the enable button is depressed.  I have the correct angled optic cables and adapters.   The 8163A powers up with no error messages for all plugins and the mainframe.   The password 1234 seems to get the 81663A enabled ( the multimeter and plugins have no error messages during self test ).   I have read the 8163A manual and found no relevant information to my problem.  I have a 81544SM FP laser which works fine in the same 8163A multimeter.  

Does anyone have an idea of what could be the problem??    The 81663A is supposed to work in an 8163A isn't it??    Is there a service manual for the 8163A to find more information??
