Issue Details

I am trying to self-calibrate my NI 5122/5124 and I receive Error -234107 or -234101: Internal Hardware Error occurred in Scopes hardware. Please contact National Instruments Support.


There are two likely reasons for this error:
  • On rare occasions the NI 5122/5124 can have false self-calibration failures. If you have NI-SCOPE version 2.8 or earlier installed, please upgrade to NI-SCOPE 2.8.1 or later.
  • If you are using the latest compatible version of NI-SCOPE, this is possibly a hardware failure, please contact National Instruments Support.

Additional Information

This error can occur in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX), NI-SCOPE Soft Front Panel, or an Application Development Environment (LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, Measurement Studio). 

The error appears differently in different calibration environments:

Figure 2: NI-SCOPE Soft Front Panel Error
