Planter Monitor

I have a 1760 JD planter with 250 monitor.  When the planter ran out of seed the first time this spring, row 2 alarmed.  After filling with seed the alarm kept ringing.  I turned the alarm off and kept going and the planter worked fine but would like to fix it now.  I changed the sensor in Row 2.  Actually did it twice since I wanted to make sure.  The guys at the local  John Deere dealeship told me I had a broken wire somewhere.  Seems odd to me that the wire would break simultaneosly with running out  of seed.  Could there be something in the Monitor that needs to be reset?

Re: Planter Monitor

I don't think there's anything to reset in the 250.  Whenever a row fails for me I unplug it and swap seed tube and sensor with another row to see if the error moves to the other row.
