Subtask 24-00-00-810-069-A Computer reset procedure

NOTE:This reset procedure is used when a computer does not operate correctly.

NOTE:The line maintenance personnel can use it a first time to avoid a computer replacement (a reset must be done for the applicable computer as indicated in the Computer Reset Table).

But, if there is more than one reset for each flight cycle for a given computer, it is necessary to do the specific troubleshooting procedure for the applicable system.

If after a reset, the computer operates correctly, no more action is necessary.

(1)To do computer reset:

(a)Set the related normal cockpit control to OFF, or open the related circuit breaker as specified in the reset procedure. (b)Wait 3 seconds if a normal cockpit control is used, or 5 seconds if a circuit breaker is used (unless a different time is indicated). (c) Set the related normal cockpit control to ON, or close the related circuit breaker. (d)Wait 3 seconds for the end of the reset.
