Section 9?

Hiya Jim,

Yep, that was probably me telling you about needing a resistor plugged
into the battery plug on HP1000's
that have the battery backup option installed.

If you have the battery backup option, and no jumper, the machine will
act as if it has no memory installed
and you should get the 'all register lights' on failure mode.

I'll look up the specifics of the resistor again if thats what you need.

Can you describe the problems your seeing?
