Q: I need help to fix date and time problems on Siemens g50. Even if I set the date and time from preset (F4), if I power off the system and then restart it goes back to the old default date/time. Please help me out on how to rectify this problem.
A: Replace the 3V battery on the motherboard, because it feeds the bios IC.
Reply: Thanks for your reply, the 3V battery on the host module is reading 3.4v, indicating OK. Any further advice is highly appreciated.
A: Maybe the battery doesn’t provide voltage under load, change it and try again.
Q: I have a Baxter Flo-Gard 6201 pump that is constantly showing check loading set error/alarm after loading, despite the set being loaded correctly and multiple attempts. Any suggestions or ideas?
A: Change the FSR (both of them). Don’t forget to remove all the glue properly.
Q: There was a power failure and communication with the couch was lost. The error message reads, “The system has failed to obtain coach position information. Select Confirm to retry.” The couch with buttons on the computer tamograph works without problems. Before the power failure, the computer tamograph worked fine. Perhaps some controller is out of order, but which one?
A: Check the GTS board. It is on the right side of the gantry. You can teraterm into it to check for errors. You could also check under the plate that is in between the gantry and couch. There is a small power supply under it that I have had fail.
Q: I am facing a monitor screen blinking error. When I turned on the complete system was booted up but the screen display was still black. When I press the monitor adjustment buttons back on the monitor, the notification panel shows while blinking the screen. I judge that when the backside of monitor light blinks the screen also blinks. I changed the DVI cable but the system status is still the same. Please guide me on how to solve this problem.
A: Depending on your cart revision. The video cards (GPU) fail often along with the LCD. You could try to plug an external monitor on the back of the unit to see if you get an image. If so, then the LCD is bad. I have had some luck pulling the video cards out, cleaning and swapping them in some cases. Some cart levels have the same card for the main LCD and the touchscreens. If you can swap the card and the touchscreen display is bad now then you know you have a bad video card.
