Startup problems 7013-590

Post by Mark van Huijste » Thu, 10 Jan 2002 21:58:26



Hi there,

Trying to start up my box (old MCA model, 590), it hangs almost
immediately. It runs through the following codes after startup:

120 - 124 - *20

The first digit of the last code isn't an '*', but the bottomhalf of a
'0' in the top part of the LED, if this makes sense :-)

It seems there's a probelm with the NVRAM, but does anyone know what
this '*20' actually means?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Mark

Seems the display is not functioning correctly.
The proper LED code is 420.
Although I still haven't got a clue ....

The 4xx Codes aren't documented. I once had a 420 with my RS/6000-C10 when
the CPU Board wasn't seated properly.
Try to disassemble the machine and clean it properly. Blow the dust out of
all PCB connectors and reassemble it again.
