Good Afternoon

Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question. My name is***** am an expert from Germany and have been working as an equipment technician for 19 years. I work with a language translation program and I would be very grateful for your understanding.
I'm sorry I can't make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you want. I will try to help you as best I can via chat.
I am sorry that you faced this problem!

it may be that you installed the connector incorrectly. Can you show me a photo of your connection point and how you installed the cable? Photos can be found below the right side of the text box with attachments.

Please feel free to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you!

The type plate is stuck on next to it and covers the round imprints or the numbers. Can you remove this label carefully? It may be that you have to put a bridge from the brown connection to the take connection and another bridge from the middle connection to the right connection. To check this, please remove the typical label or the label next to it carefully.

Right now I can see it properly. There are two metal clips at the bottom left of the connection. These are bridges. You have to put a bridge between one and two and two to three and leave the brown one on one. Then switch the unit on again and try it out. When you do this, please always switch off the power supply first.

Ok let me try that

Please good luck

When they are ready and before they switch on the power supply, send me a photo so that I can check it beforehand.
