    D i a g n o s t i c c o d e s DIAGNOSTIC CODES REFERENCE This lists the diagnostic codes that your server can produce. Some of these codes indicate errors or malfunctions; others are simply way-markers that indicate normal progress.
  • Page 114 D i a g n o s t i c c o d e s ♦ Brownout mode (A.nnn) This mode indicates a temporary reduction or even absence of the AC electric power. If full power is not restored after approximately five seconds, Brownout mode will change to Battery mode.
  • Page 115 D i a g n o s t i c c o d e s 0F10-0F4F These codes indicate various other errors and could appear on the LCD at any point. The following list defines the codes and indicates what action you should take if these errors occur.
  • Page 116 D i a g n o s t i c c o d e s Settings of the MODEMResponseTimeOut and MODEMReceiptTimeOut variables, in the SMA, are correct. 0F41 MODEM port Response time-out - Same as 0F40. 0F42 MODEM port Transmit time-out - Same as 0F40. 0F4D MODEM AT command result code time-out occurred - Indicates faulty modem, modem cable, SMC board or SMC (FPSC) variable settings.
  • Page 117 D i a g n o s t i c c o d e s The following codes have special meaning to the SMC: ♦ 0001 is issued, accompanied by an alarm, under the following circumstances: ◊ The nickel-cadmium battery on the SMC board has fully discharged.
