OTHER FUNCTIONS This chapter describes how to abort operation, scan NCS, choose EGC and NCS channels and display LES information. Aborting an Operation You can abort transmission, receiving or scanning (on the NCS common channel) as follows: 1. Press the [F7] key to display the Options menu. Options menu (when FELCOM functions as Inmarsat MES) 2.
7. OTHER FUNCTIONS Scanning NCS Common Channel Scanning is possible when the FELCOM 15 is in idle state and functions as an Inmarsat C receiver. If the FELCOM 15 is not in idle state the message “Ignored: MES is not idle.” appears. Wait until the equipment becomes idle.
Choosing EGC Receiving Channel EGC channel can be selected when the terminal unit is set to operate as an EGC-only receiver. However, this procedure is shown for reference only; currently there is only one EGC channel per NCS. 1. Press the [F7] key to display the Options menu.

MAINTENANCE, TROUBLESHOOTING This chapter provides the information necessary for the maintenance and checking of the FELCOM 15. Please review the safety information at the beginning of this manual before attempting any maintenance procedures. General Checking and Maintenance Turn off the power before conducting any maintenance procedures other than the cleaning of the terminal unit.
8. MAINTENANCE, TROUBLESHOOTING Diagnostics The system is equipped with a diagnostic test which checks it for proper operation. 8.2.1 Self test at power on The terminal unit performs the ROM sum test and RAM read and write test when turned on. If the test results are normal the equipment goes into standby. If error is found you cannot transmit.
When the test is completed, the screen shows the test results as shown at the top of the next page. Options 1. Login 2. Logout 1. PV Test 3. Abort 2. PV Test Result TERM CPU 4. Select NCS 3. Self Test 5.
8. MAINTENANCE, TROUBLESHOOTING 10. When the distress alert test is finished, the LES sends the results of the PV test to the MES. 8.3.2 PV test procedure 1. Confirm that the terminal unit is in idle condition and logged in. 2.
8. The test results appear on the PV Test Result screen. See the next section for how to interpret the results. 8.3.3 Displaying PV test results 1. At the standby display, press the [F7] key to display the Options menu. 2.

This equipment contains complex modules in which fault diagnosis and repair down to component level are not practical (IMO A.694(17)/8.3.1. Only some discrete components are used. FURUNO Electric Co., Ltd. believes identifying these components is of no value for shipboard maintenance; therefore, they are not listed in the manual.
