A completely different possibility is that the connector the hand control plugs into could be dirty. Try removing and inserting it several times to wipe it clean. You can also plug it into the "AUX" ports on the base of the scope. If that solves the problem you may have to clean the contacts in the fork arm connector with alcohol or contact cleaner from Radio Shack on a cotton swab. Or you can just leave the HC plugged into one of the AUX ports, many people seem to prefer that.
These error codes are fairly common. They aren't usually the kiss of death, they are usually either power or connector related. Sometimes they are an indication of a failure in the HC or the motor control boards. You can also try running the scope with hcAnywhere in place of the HC. If that works you probably have a bad HC. If it doesn't work and if you haven't used hcAnywhere before it may not mean anything. Trying to debug problems with new software and possible scope hardware problems at the same time is not a good idea.
