  Is anyone familar with this terminal? I have one and I've been using it
for years. I never had a manual for it and it took a while to figure out
how to use it but I did and I thought I understood it. UNTIL today! Today I
turned it off to disconnect a cable, when I turned it back on it said
Factory Cycle Test and started doing all kinds of self tests and video
tests. It endlessly repeats the tests and I can't find a way to stop it! I
have no idea why it started or how to stop the tests. Does anybody know? It
has both a Self Test and Reset buttons but neither one will stop the tests.
I've tried all combinations of them and the power switch. Reset does make
it reset and start over but it goes right back to running the same tests.
The SelfTest button USUALLY causes it to run a short self test but these
tests are much more extensive. When the tests start it displays a message
using the normal seelf test to control cycling or continous tests. I'm not
sure exactly what it means but I'm guessing that they mean to use the ST
button to control wheather the tests repeat or not. However I tried the ST
button and it doesn't appear to have any effect.

   Anybody have a manual for this or know how to operate it?
