    Can anyone give information, links, or downloads on using DrZX scan tool. Looking for info on computer version. Where does the usb cord assembly plug into on the excavator. Where can you obtain information relating to how to understand the scan tool results or output. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the response. I have the DrZX palm version that is supposed to work on a laptop with windows. I have the cable interface with a usb on one end and a four pin plug and a six pin plug on the other end. Will i use both plugs or just one at a time. Is the plug under the fuse box. Also, i cant get the Drzx software to load. Is that something you can forward. Thanks again for all the info.

    I know it is a pain th butt .Bin their with it.You first load the disc into you laptop.Than hot sync it to the palm pilot. Than put in password zx2000 to unlock should work.Some thing maybe wrong with disc. You will only use one plug at time the four pin or the six not together.Did you buy this tool off ebay?I see you did by saying it had two plugs on one end.Shopguy here on the forum had a problem. I send him a disc.All is good now.You would be able to plug you latop into the machine .The plugs in the fuse box are white.Their will nothing plugged into them.Either to the right of the fuses looking over back of the seat or to front of the machine if the fuse face the roof.Let me know if i can helpyou further .Email me tool_king@hot mail.com
    thanks

    Hello,
    I know this is an old thread but my problem seems to fit.. I wonder if anyone knows how to activate or deactivate password at machine startup. I use one of those China made i/f and a palm emulator to my laptop but i cant find anything about that.. By the way, does anyone know where to get the win version (dealer)?

    Hi everyone!
    I have a Hitachi Ex-200-2 excavator, that has a problem that niether a few local mechanics, & I can figure out.
    The machine was working fine, but then it just started loosing force on any hydraulic movement, with in 5-10 minutes.
    Now the machine boggs out when you do any hydraulic movement, but it turns on. The engine seems to be fine, but the moment you do any hydraulic movent forward reverse, stick, boom etc. it boggs out, & kills then engine. Also it wont let you rev up engine, why?

    It also has a hydraulic thumb that works sometime. It works the 1st 1-2minutes upon turning on machine but then it wont open thumb.

    Can anyone help please???
