A bit more info. Which P-120, gas or Kero start. Has it sat for a while? Disconnect the main fuel line, connect it to a ground tank and in Test Functions use the fuel purge option to pump some fuel, it starts at 0.5v, but use Change Value ( held down) and + to increase it up to 3.0v, leave it there 20 secs and wind back ( using -) to 0.5v

Connect it back up and try a start.

Hi Dave, Converted Kero start. It had been used weekly and I had one flight on it the same day it didn't start.
I will try your suggestion. Thanks Steve

Ok, less likely pump unless it’s done a lot of hours. Also do a burner test in the same menu. Holding the change value button should allow you to look up the tail cone and see a bright light. If not the burner has starter to die.
