Error Message 8602 (H036143)

When the 4717 is attached directly to a PS/2 Model 30 - 286, shipped after August 1, 1989, an 8602 post error message may be displayed and the 4717 will not work. This is due to a change made to the Model 30-286 planar board which grounded pin 2 of the pointing device port.

Order (no charge) RPQ # S82021 to receive an interposer cable that will correct this problem. The interposer cable is P/N 31F6759.

Note: This situation may apply to other system units such as 8557.
