SHDSL Testing
If no fault is found on a pair, and the DSL system has completed its initialisation, the tester automatically attempts to establish DSL synchronisation for that pair, even if faults are detected on one or more of the other pairs. Note that if a fault condition is detected on any pair, the fault continues to be displayed until the DSL sync status changes. The HOME screen displays a summary of the status of each of the active pairs:

LED
Flashing Green / Red Flashing Green / Red Green (Red)* Green (Red)* Off

Indication
