The instrument method doesn't match the system configuration or is switched off in the Instrument Method.


  1. Compare the components in the instrument method to the system configuration.

  3. Alternatively, create a separate system configuration to match the desired instrument method.


Note: When attempting to monitor baseline, the Run Samples window shows Setting Up - Monitor Baseline but never reaches the Monitoring status and no real time plots are displayed.
