MICS in maintenance

MICS in maintenance

HELP! Just connected a MICS. It took quite a while to boot up. When it did, sets say "in maintenance". I can't do any thing. How do I get it out of mtnce??


RE: MICS in maintenance

did you do a **startup command when 1st powered up?

RE: MICS in maintenance

Never got the chance. Once it stopped flashing, no time/date just mtnce.


RE: MICS in maintenance

Sounds like it had an expansion in it, and it was removed. Either put an expansion card back in, or short out the capacitor, or connect a phone to each port one at a time until you find the alarm set, that will give you the option to perform a cold start.

RE: MICS in maintenance

This can happen when you pull out the fiber expansion cards so if you have those laying around try putting 1 or 2 of them back in. Otherwise like stated above, short the capacitor.

Thank's guys changed software & startup...
