    Lambda 10m VK-55 II

    699 DIRECTORY BROKEN
    1432 FMC HARD ALARM
    1421 VID STARTING ERROR
    1281 X ASC DISCONNECTED
    1447 FMC WATCHDOG ALARM
    742 EDITING THE PROGRAM

    This is what I walked into this A.M. Has any one seen this before?? Manuals are not much help.Control boots up as normal until these alarms appear. I can navigate through the screens, but all the programs are gone and offsets look like they are in metric. I am leaning towards the FMC board because it also has a Red alarm LED lit on it in the rack.VID board has green run light. I cannot acces my directory page because the control will not come out of jog mode. I'm also not sure if the program directory is the directory that this alarm is referring to. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Mike,

    there are a few options you can try here. Its a good sign you can navigate through the screens. The directory broken alarm is definitely referring to the program storage part. FMC board is likely the cause, especially due to the watchdog alarm. If it comes down to that there is a procedure you must follow to properly swap to a new / repaired board, but we will cross that bridge when we get there. There is a way to reformat the directory, but with all the other alarms I doubt that will get you any farther. Its (mostly) safe to say your FMC board is on the way out. Do what you can to make backups of everything. The HPC1 and GMI board are the ones that have the memory storage, but you can never be too sure that it might get worse so make backups before you do anything! Do this and get back to us.
