New guy here. Not new to the game, but have a new (mildly used) Miller Dynasty 200DX.
I've been cruising the site for a while now and have been looking for the documentation on what buttons to push to get to the Diagnostics on these machines. In particular, I'd like to know how to get the number of hours on my machine as well as to check on its general health if possible.
I'll probably have a lot of other questions as time goes on and hope to not make a general pest of myself. I'm new to TIG but taught myself how to gas weld about 40 years ago after getting a couple pointers from a friend. Then moved up to Stick, then to MIG to do a better job on the trailers and chassis I was building. Now I'd really like to take that next step.
Aluminum welding has always intrigued me. I did some about 10 years or so ago with my Gas rig and found it trickier than all get-out.. There's got to be a better way? Tell me it's so!
Thanks for any help you can give me.

Download the manual from the resources tab above and get the hrs info.
I don't know if there is other stuff on there for the repair guys or not tho.

Arc Time is displayed for the first 5 seconds. The first 4 numbers = hours / the last 2 numbers = minutes.
After 5 seconds, the Arc Count is displayed for 5 seconds

Forgot to say that I found that information in the manual. Page 48. Just didn't know what to look for I guess...
