Issue:
What will cause the ATV312 drive to be stuck in local mode showing the three scrolling LEDs?

Product Line:
Altivar ATV312

Environment:
All 

Cause:
After putting the ATV312 drive in local mode its appears to be stuck and it will not go back to remote mode. 

Resolution:
First check the serial number and firmware. All new drives built in 2016 or later or drives which have firmware 5.1 IE56 or greater can no longer go back and forth between Local and Remote modes. For these newer drives, you will have to reset the drive to a factory default state to retun it back to remote mode. 

Older drives allowed mode change via the Mode button on the face of the drive.
