Assuming that you have verified that the front panel works correctly by
removing the 16FDC (and only the 16FDC), then the first thing that I
would check is to see if the 16FDC is grounding pin 20 (UNPROT)
of the s-100 bus.

If it is, a quick glance at the Imsai panel schematic will show that all of
the flip-flops and monostable multivibrators associated with the Examine
and Deposit functions will be disabled. The 'J' input of the flip-flops
need to be high, and the 'CLR' pin on the mono-multis need to be high
in order for the these specific panel functions to work.

Best regards,
