  • Associated product(s)

When loading the F program in TIA V11 Safety Advanced the error message 0xD242 is displayed when a function block cannot be linked.

Cause and remedy
If you are using a CPU 41x-F with a memory card (flash):

  • Check whether the pins are bent.
  • Do not load the program directly into the CPU 41x-F, but into the memory card (flash) ("Online > Download User Program to Memory Card").

If you are using an F CPU for ET 200S:

  • Check whether the pins are bent.
  • Check that the order number of the F CPU used is the same as that of the F CPU configured.
  • Make sure that the termination module for the ET 200S is actually slotted.
