(ICIMACS = Instrument Control and Image Acquisition System)
If the external SCSI cable is connected between the IC and another computer, both computers should be started at the same time; otherwise both machines may not be able to use their shared SCSI disk.
1) Check that the cables behind the IC correspond to their labels on the IC case
2) Turn on the IC (and any other computer connected to it). Make sure both of
the IC monitors are on. Let it run
until it reaches the DOS prompt, or the IC program starts. If you are at
the DOS prompt, type MSU to start the MSU program. Wait until you get
the HAWLEY% prompt at the bottom of the screen.
3) There is now a row of status "lights" on the monochrome monitor,
between the status window and the command window. You should see the
following on the IC:
-DISK +SEQUENCER IE READY +BURST THAWED VERBOSE
Ignore the blank spaces; they are not used with this camera.
If you get something else, check the trouble shooting procedures. The
ultimate fix is simply to restart.
