end of the self tests, the supply is in the standby mode (STANDBY displayed) or
in the operate mode (actual volta

Self test errors
If a power-on self test fails, all output channels will remain disabled, and the
display will indicate the type of failure and the output channel on which it occurred.
If this is the case, refer to section 3.6 "Acceptance tests".
