The beam blank button seemed to be in reverse mode. I could see the  
SEM image in the off mode, and vice versa. More importantly, the beam  
would not stay blanked during a move from one position to another  
(whether you turn the blanker on or off). I shut down both computers,  
and after starting up again, could not see the SEM image at all.
