Hi,

When starting abb 1400 i get low battery 1. Press any key to continue...

The next screen get we get stuck,
WAIT! The system is starting up

BOOT=iocbase-vr001-010510-1002...

The motor light flashes 3 seconds green, then it is off and this is it.

Any help please? Is changing battery a must for system to start?

Best regards!

    So this is a S4C controller where there are two batteries in the controller?

    The batteries keep the RAM memory intact if they are both empty then you will have to do a cold start every time you turn off the power as the RAM memory is lost.
    It might be that the RAM memory is not fully cleared - unplug the batteries and wait several minutes then power on.
    You will need your set of floppy disks to reload the system.

    Yes, this is it, s4c with 2 batteries

    Yes, this is the problem, i dont have the set of floppy disks. hmmm

    But before it "freezes" it give just that battery 1 is low. So i hope just this one is empty. Would replacing it help?

    Thanks for help

    -If the second battery is still good then replacing it will not help your current issue, but you should get it replaced before the other one goes flat.
    -What are the LEDs on the circuit boards doing - on solid, flashing, off, etc?
    -What do you mean by the motor light flashes - is this the motor on lamp on the front of the controller or an LED inside the controller?
    -Can you post a photo of the screen where it is hanging?
