Basic Operational Questions
- Q. Can I change the
intensity of the RAMCHECK's LCD display?
A. Yes. The intensity is preset by the factory and
should be suitable for most users. However, if you
want to change the intensity from the factory preset
there is an adjustment hole located on the bottom of
the RAMCHECK enclosure under the ON/OFF Switch. Turn
over the RAMCHECK and place a small screwdriver in the
hole, carefully turning it back and forth until it
catches in the slot. Turn the RAMCHECK back upright
and turn the screwdriver counterclockwise to darken or
clockwise to lighten to your preference.
- Q. Can I also adjust
the backlight of the LCD Display?
A. Yes, there are two settings, High and Low. The
factory preset is set to Low which should provide
enough backlight for most users. If you typically
operate the RAMCHECK in low light settings or want the
backlight turned off you can change this setting to
High by changing the jumper position at JP6 on the
RAMCHECK Processor Board or remove the jumper to turn
it off. You must take apart the RAMCHECK enclosure to
do this. For further instructions please see Appendix
H in the extended version of the RAMCHECK manual
located on the Software CD that came with your
RAMCHECK. You can also view the online
- Q. Is there a way to
mute the "beep" sound that the RAMCHECK generates
during power on, while pressing any of the function
keys and when a test phase is completed?
A. Yes, press the "ESC" key a few times to make sure
the unit is in standby mode, then press "F2" for
"SETUP". Next press "F5" for "Next", then "F1" for
"Config", then "F5" for "Next Menu", then "F5" for
"Next Menu". Press "F3" once for "SOUND" to toggle it
off. Next press the "ESC" key four times to save your
change. You should see "SAVING TO EPROM" on the LCD
display. The sound is now turned off for all functions
of the RAMCHECK even if you turn the unit off then on
again. To reactivate the sound, repeat the
instructions above to toggle it back on.
- Q. I get a "STORED
SETUP IS ON" message every time I turn on my
RAMCHECK, what does this mean?
A. This alerts you that the "SETUP" has been changed
"by the user" from its factory default and will only
be displayed when the unit is turned on. Any parameter
in the "SETUP" menu that are changed will trigger this
warning message except for enabling manual programming
for the SPD.
- Q. When I get the
"STORED SETUP IS ON" message upon powering up the
RAMCHECK, is there a way to find out what has been
A. Yes, while in standby mode press "F2" for Setup
then press "F3" for "LIST SETUP". A screen will appear
that will list any changes that were made.
- Q. How can I reset the
"SETUP" back to factory default?
A. While the unit is in standby mode you simply press
"F2" for "SETUP" then "F4" for "AUTO", the unit will
then reset to its factory default. To confirm simply
turn the unit off then on again to make sure the
"STORED SETUP IS ON" message does not appear.
- Q. I get a "DEVICE
TYPE WARNING" message every time I test certain
modules, does this mean the memory is bad?
A. This message indicates that the tester has detected
a difference in the architecture of the module when
compared to the JEDEC standard. It does not
necessarily mean that there is a problem with your
memory device. This message is meant to inform the
user that the tested device may not be a drop-in
replacement for modules that meet the JEDEC standard.
