Errors

This section documents warnings and errors generated by this task (if any). Note that warnings and errors can also be generated in the SAS infrastructure libraries, in which case they would not be documented here. Refer to the index of all errors and warnings available in the HTML version of the SAS documentation.

Either the instrument header is wrong or the input file is not from an EPIC camera Ensure that instrument header is correct and that the input file is an EPIC camera file
InstrumentNotValiderror 
 Instrument must be EMOS1, EMOS2 or EPN
 
ebadpixupdate11warning 
 Keywords in bad pixels file missing or incompatible with events list
corrective action: Check BADPIX extension of bad pixels file and relaunch
 
evflagImage11warning 
 replaceonboard=Y and no event flagged at all for that CCD. Switching to incremental mode.
corrective action: If you really want to proceed anyway, use forcereplace=Y
 
evflagImage12warning 
 overwrite=Y and no event flagged as ON_BADPIX for that CCD. Switching to incremental mode.
corrective action: If you really want to proceed anyway, use forcereplace=Y
 
evflagImage13warning 
 A bad pixel has invalid coordinates. It will be ignored.
corrective action: inform SOC (this is probably an error in the CCF) if origin=ccf. Look at what happened during bad pixel search if origin=files.
