ICIMACS for the MSU 2Kx2K Camera: Troubleshooting
12/19/97 : JAM
(ICIMACS = Instrument Control and
Image Acquisition System)
Check the status lights on the monochrome monitors. They should be exactly
as shown on the ICIMACS Startup procedure. If not, follow the procedure
below that corresponds to the problem:
Not an error. Don't sweat it.
First attempt: Type "+seq" at the IC keyboard. Try to take an exposure. If
it reverts to -SEQ...
Second attempt: Check the fiber cables on the back of the IC and on the head
electronics box. Repeat first attempt.
Third attempt: Turn off power to IC. Remove IC cover. The sequencer is the
third card from the bottom. Make sure it is firmly seated in
its slot. GENTLY make sure the small connectors off the top
of the board are firmly seated. Leave the cover off the IC.
Follow the system restart procedure.
Don't attempt anything. This seems to be OK.
Type "+BURST" at the IC keyboard
Type "THAW" at the IC keyboard
This is not an error; it indicates that communications through the serial
port will not be echoed to the screen. During debugging VERBOSE mode can
be useful. If desired, type "VERBOSE" at the IC keyboard
First attempt: Type "-DEBUG" at the IC keyboard
Second Attempt: Type "DEBUG 0" at the IC keyboard
