Phaser 7400 14: real time clock


According to my service manual, this error is occurring during the Power On Self-Test. While it is a "soft" error, it normally can only be resolved by replacing the Image Processor Board.

But wait! There's more!

Here may be a way to reset without the expensive replacement:
The most likely cause is that the Image Processor Board has not successfully loaded
its NVRAM contents (instructions) into RAM. All print engine operation halts, and
will only become ready when the Image Processor Board successfully boots.
1. Check for media or debris in the paper path.
2. Power cycle the printer.
3. Verifying Image Processor Board failure:
a. Power-off the printer, and remove the Image Processor Board.
b. Power-on the printer. Wait at least 5 minutes while the print engine
initializes. If there was a problem with the Image Processor Board, it will
now not affect the Engine Control Board.
c. If characters appear on the Control Panel display, the Engine Control Board
is functional and the problem is most likely with the Image Processor Board.
d. Turn off the printer and reseat the Image Processor Board and turn on the
printer to determine if seating was the problem.
e. Perform a PostScript NVRAM reset, see "Postscript NVRAM Reset" on
page 6-9.
f. Turn off the printer and systematically remove individual optional
components from the Image Processor Board to isolate a possible problem
component.
g. Replace the Image Processor Board.

I wish you luck with this repair.

My board does not turn on and its beeping. Ive counted 7 beeps. i tried replacing the memory with known good ones but still the beeping persist.


MSI states that 7 beeps means "Virtual mode exception error "


Explanation: Virtual mode is one of the different modes that the processor can run in. The system is reporting an error when testing this mode.
Diagnosis: There is a problem related to the processor or motherboard. Note that this doesn't mean that the processor is necessarily dead, since the system won't boot at all with a dead processor.


Not knowing the price of either your processor or the board it is hard to say what to do for the best

Good luck

Processor in incorrect slot system halted error


Hello,

You don't see this often but when you do it means your cpu is not in cpu slot 1. (Usually you are also running 1 processor in your server.) Just move the cpu to the other slot, power on your server and you should be good to go. Be sure to only touch the edge of the cpu and not any of the chips in the middle.

Good Luck

Hi according to HP memo see the following answer hope it help:

DESCRIPTION After installing a different system board or processor in systems described in the "Scope," the systems may halt during POST and display an 1801 Microcode Patch Error with a prompt to press the F1 key to continue.
NOTE Pressing the F1 key will allow the system to continue. However, processor performance may not be optimized and the error will repeat each time the system is restarted. HP recommends that the microcode be updated to ensure optimum compatibility and performance.

Continuous beeping sound


Do you get video? If so then it could be a stuck key on the keyboard.

Do you get no video? If so then reseat the RAM.
