Eliminates terminal capability to store composed or received messages.
(1) If Self-Test shows memory failure:
Operator shall power down terminal and switch to KSR state.
Terminal can be operated in KSR until organizational maintenance can replace the
message memory board.
(2) If failure occurs during normal operation:
Indication is not given until operator tries to retrieve previously stored message.
Depending upon when and where it was stored, the operator may or may not be able
to retrieve the message.
Operator shall attempt to print all messages stored in memory.
Operator powers down terminal, then switches into and operates in KSR state until
organizational maintenance can correct the problem.
Limits terminal's capabilities to RO state only. If Self-Test shows keyboard failure, the
(1) Notify organizational maintenance.
(2) Power down the terminal or switch into and operate in the RO state.
If unprinted messages are in message memory and cannot afford to be
lost by powering down, the operator shall have the sending station
transmit messages until message memory becomes full and the terminal
is forced into emergency print-out.
Keyboard failure may be indicated if keyboard is inoperative.
Problem is not caused by a power failure if copy lamps remain on.
