The Delete Stored Data function is described on p. 39 of the MAX® 5000 User Manual, rev 2.21. If the user deletes over 200 single Stored Data records during one day by pressing the Delete soft key individually or continuously, it is possible to cause a “DB Full” error on the instrument. This error is not recoverable, and if “DB Full” appears on the display, the instrument must be returned to the factory for service.
To prevent this rare occurrence, the preferred delete procedure is to select a group of records to delete by using the arrow keys to highlight, followed by pressing the [ENT] key to add each record to the group designated by the triangle symbol at the left of the data item, and then use the DELETE key (and press “yes” to confirm the delete prompt) to delete the entire group in one step. Alternatively, if all records are to be deleted first select all records using the SEL ALL key, and then press the DELETE key.
