Post Conditioning Checks:
Use Dimino and tstdimino to check the vsn and pointer setting after conditioning:
dimino -mo -c1 & tstdimino >vsn? >vsn? " need to enter twice to get a nice response"
Make sure the vsn is the same as the front label on the module. If it has been corrupted, you can change the vsn by entering:
>protect=off >vsn=XXXsxxxx "eg vsn=BKG-0006"
To check the pointers are reset to 0:
>protect=off >pointers=? " should show 0 : 0 : 0 : 0; "
More Handy tstdimino commands:
>bank_set=A "select module A" >reset=erase "erase the module without conditioning"
