- LD3/LD3S units can only be enabled or disabled when receiving L-band signals from a geo-stationary satellite.
The ID indicator on the LD3/LD3S will be extinguished when it is first switched on. It will not be illuminated until the unit has locked to the L-band signal.
Ensure that the Sync indicator on the LD3/LD3S is illuminated before attempting to enable unit.
- When using LD3 or LD3S units with DPX, the system will only operate correctly when they are enabled for Standard Service with Verify DPx Display.
Checking Current Status
The current unit status can be determined from the ID LED on the LD3 (or LD3S) front panel.
ID LED is on: LD3 (or LD3S) is ENABLED
ID LED is off: LD3 (or LD3S) is DISABLED

- The Unit Code (this example 22927)
- The Enable Status of the unit (this example Disabled)
- The Service (this example Standard), this will not state if the unit is enabled for DPx or not, will just state the solution Services it is or has been enabled for.

Enable Verify DPx
Once VERIPOS have received the activation request, service requirements and SAL Code, the Helpdesk will send activation over the air to the unit.
If the code was entered correctly the Enable Status and Service (if change to services) will update.
