    Need parameters hardinge quest 6/42 build in 2003

    Hello all
    Just bought myself a hardinge quest 6/42 from a auction in Germany.
    It is a ex us army Lathe with only 51 hours on the counter.
    How this thing gets here in Europe I don't have a clue.
    But now it's mine.
    The backup battery is dead so I got a sram error.
    And I only have a manual not a backup.
    Can anyone here provide me with some parameters that might get the machine back working again.
    Thanks in advance.

    Kind regards from Holland

    The control is a 21it and does not have a HDD.
    So i'm hoping on some parameters from you guys
    There also might be a problem with the card reader because it won't read the card.
    I have a original Fanuc Compact flash card 128MB.
    I use this in my Hardinge GS250MSY with fanuc 18i control and there it works.
    The machine is 5 years younger so there might be the problem.
    So now i'm also figuring out if the control is the problem or the card.
    I was looking at a post from someone on the internet the early fanuc 21it have problems with reading large Compact flash cards.
    They advice a maximum 16mb Sram compact flash.
    So there is some work more to do, then only get me the parameters.
