Key Mapping Changes on the PDT81xx Series Xscale after cold boot

Article ID: 10753505

Symptom

The keyboard mapping has changed on a PDT8100 series Xscale device after a cold boot was performed.

Facts

PDT81xx

Root Cause

Keys other than the function and reset were pressed when performing a cold boot.

Resolution

Make sure no other keys are pressed besides the function and reset keys during the Cold Boot process.  Pressing any other keys may result in the terminal loading up the wrong keyboard mapping.

To perform a cold boot on the PDT81xx series terminal, press the reset button (located under the battery cover), while holding down the FUNC (function) key.
