Troubleshooting
• OmniBook Self Test
• Troubleshooting Flowchart
OmniBook Self-Test
The OmniBook Self-Test provides on-board hardware and firmware diagnostics. To operate the
self-test, perform the following steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Save all files and close all applications: The OmniBook is reset at the end of the self-test.
Turn the OmniBook OFF.
Press and hold the [Esc] key and press [ON]. You will hear a short three-tone beep.
Self Test will initialize and start.
To run a test:
Highlight the test name and press [ENTER].
Highlight the test name and press [Ctrl][ENTER] to run a longer
and more extensive version of a test--not available for all tests.
The test runs and its results are reported.
6. To run several tests in a continuous loop:
Highlight one or more using [ space bar ] and press [ENTER].
Each test runs and its results are reported.
Press [Backspace] to stop the loop.
7. To exit the self-test, press [Esc].
Interpretation of test results
A result of “OK” on any test indicates that the test did not find problems while the unit was
operating in its current state. A “BAD” result indicates that the test found a problem while the
unit was operating in its current state. A “BAD” result should always be confirmed by running the
test in a loop for several iterations or running the long version of the test. Further inspection of
the unit to rule out configuration or installation conflicts is necessary prior to diagnosing the unit
as needing repair.
Any test that is halted by [Backspace] is shown as “aborted” and no results are displayed.
The OmniBook will not enter sleep mode while the self-test is executing.
Loop Back Connectors
In order to run the RS232 serial port or parallel port self-test, a loop back connector is needed.
The loop back may be placed on either the OmniBook port or at the end of the corresponding
cable. This feature is also helpful in diagnosing a defective serial or parallel cable.
Loop back connectors may be purchased or can easily be constructed. The following illustrations
identify the correct pin-out configurations for the serial and parallel loop back connectors.

Troubleshooting Flowchart
The following series of flowcharts is intended as a guide for troubleshooting the OmniBook 300,
425, 430, and 530. Each technician should still rely on personal experience and supplemental
knowledge when diagnosing a problem.
These tips should be kept in mind when referencing the troubleshooting flowcharts:
•
•
•
12
Use the Main Troubleshooting Flowchart to isolate the problem to a particular area.
Use the additional individual troubleshooting flowcharts to narrow down the problem to a
specific component or item.
Always use supplemental information resources, including the Product Support Plan, Service
Notes, and the World Wide Web, to aid in diagnosing problem areas.

• Probe
Removal Procedure
1. Remove the battery, ac adapter, mass storage, system card (if applicable), memory module
(if installed), modem (if installed), mouse, and any installed PCMCIA accessory cards.
2. Remove the four Rubber Feet and seven Screws from the bottom case (see below
illustration).

54
3. Remove the I/O Door and the four standoffs located on the I/O backplane (see figure below).
Figure 10 - Backplane Standoffs
4. Two flat tip screwdrivers, or similar prying devices, are needed to remove the Top Case and
Display Assemblies. Four plastic tabs hold the Top Case and Bottom Case together. Two
tabs are located in each PCMCIA slot (see below illustration). Note, the screws seen in the
PCMCIA slot do not need to be removed.
Figure 11 - Bottom Case Tabs
55
Place a prying device at a tab location between the metal and plastic of the Bottom Case
(see figure below, left). Place another prying device in the PCMCIA eject button (see figure
below, right). To release the tab, simultaneously twist prying device A while lifting on prying
device B. Use caution with this maneuver, as the plastic tabs can break off the Bottom
Case. If this occurs, the Bottom Case must be replaced.
Prying device “A”
Prying device “B”
Figure 12 - Bottom Case Prying Locations
5. Perform step four for each of the four tabs.
6. Once the Bottom Case tabs are released, the Bottom Case and Top Case are being held
together only by the display cable and the two keyboard cables. Do not allow the Top
Case and Bottom Case to separate at this point. The display cable and keyboard
cables will be damaged if they are not properly disconnected.
7. Use a prying device to increase the separation of the Top Case and Bottom Case (see figure
below). Do not separate the Top Case and Bottom Case more than 1 cm. A separation
greater than 1 cm will damage the keyboard flex cables by pulling them out of the
zero-force insertion connectors. The intent is to be able to view the display cable, located
to the left of the ac adapter socket.
Display Cable
Figure 13 - I/O Port Prying Location
56
8. With the separation increased slightly, the display cable can be disconnected using a probe.
Use caution to keep the OmniBook on a level surface. With the Top Case partially
separated, small internal parts may dislodge when the OmniBook is tilted at a sharp
angle. Place the probe at the base of the display cable connector between the two rows of
pins. Use a rocking motion to lift the cable from the connector. See the below illustration for
proper placement of the probe.
Figure 14 - Disconnecting Display
Cable
9. With the display cable removed, the Top Case and Bottom Case can be opened partially to
gain access to the keyboard flex cables (see below illustration). Do not open the unit
completely as this will damage the keyboard flex cables by pulling them out of the
zero-force insertion connectors. Open the zero-force insertion connectors and remove
the keyboard flex cables. The Top Case can now be removed completely from the Bottom
Case.

Figure 15 - Keyboard Flex Cables
10. To separate the Keyboard from the Display, five grounding eyelets must be removed from
the display posts (see below illustration). Use caution when removing the grounding
eyelets, as they can be broken off easily. If this happens, the assembly must be
replaced. To prevent the eyelets from breaking, bend the grounding eyelet tabs at the
farthest point from the eyelet.
Proper Tab Bend
Figure 16 - Display Grounding Eyelets
58
11. To remove the Display from the Top Case, the display cable and two grounding cables must
be guided through the holes in the Top Case.
Replacement Procedure
1. Guide the display posts, display cable and two grounding cables on the Display through the
holes in the Top Case.
2. Replace the grounding eyelets over the display posts (see Figure 16). Use caution when
replacing the grounding eyelets, as they can be broken off easily. If this happens, the
assembly must be replaced.
3. Press the Display and Top Case firmly at each display post to snap the assembly in place.
4. Position the Top Case and Display Assembly over the Bottom Case and insert the two
keyboard flex cables into the zero-force insertion connectors. Ensure the connectors are
fully closed. Once the keyboard flex cables are secured in the connectors, do not
allow them to be pulled out. This will damage the cables.
59
5. To reconnect the display cable, position a probe in the cable as shown in the below
illustration.
Figure 17 - Display Cable Probe Position
6. Use the probe to connect the display cable into the connector as shown below. Use caution
to keep the OmniBook on a level surface. With the Top Case partially separated,
small internal parts may dislodge when the OmniBook is tilted at a sharp angle.
Figure 18 - Reconnecting Display Cable
7. With the display cable reconnected, the I/O grounding eyelets must be slid into place. Use
caution when positioning the I/O grounding eyelets as they can be broken off easily.
It is acceptable to reassemble the OmniBook with certain I/O grounding eyelets broken if
there is at least one eyelet in each of the four positions AND at least two matched sets
remaining. See Figure 19, Figure 20, Figure 21, and Figure 22 for examples.
60
Acceptable to reassemble
All eyelets are present.

Appendix B - Power On Self Test Codes
Beep Codes
Beep Codes are used to identify a Power On Self Test (POST) error that
occurs when the screen is not available. Once the screen is operational,
diagnostic messages are reported to the screen. There are beep codes for
both fatal and nonfatal system board errors.
The codes are shown as x-y-z where 2-2-1 represents 2 beeps - pause - 2
beeps - pause - 1 beep.

Display Codes
There are a number of Power On Self Test (POST) tests that are performed after the Beep Code
tests. Failure of one or more of these tests will result in a displayed failure code (such as 0240).
It is extremely important not to interpret a failure code immediately as a hardware failure. The
failure should be confirmed with a clean boot. A clean boot is defined as pressing the reset
button after removing all accessories (including memory cards, external floppy drive, modems,
PCMCIA cards, and printers) and providing a reliable power source.
The following list explains a number of POST Display Codes. Note, not all codes are available
on all models of the OmniBook.

Appendix C - Password Policy
If the user forgets the system password, there is a master password that will
unlock the OmniBook. The user calls Technical Support to determine this
master password as follows:
1. Support will tell the user the keys to type at the password entry screen:
[alt][shft][f10]
2. The OmniBook generates and displays an encoded master password. This
is displayed under the normal password entry area. At this point, this is the
only password that will unlock the OmniBook unless the user presses [ESC] to
remove the encoded master from the password entry screen. Then the user's
stored password can be entered.
3. The user reads the encoded master password to Support.
4. Support runs a program that decodes the encoded password, and reads the
decoded password (alphanumeric) to the user.
5. The user types in the decoded password.
6. OmniBook decodes the encoded master password it generated and
compares it to the decoded password typed in by the user.
7. If the two passwords match, the OmniBook is unlocked. The forgotten
password is automatically erased. Support can then guide the user through
the process of entering a new password.
8. If the two passwords do not match, the previous sequence must be
repeated until the user correctly enters a master password.
The encoded master password is an eight-character alphanumeric sequence
that the OmniBook generates at random every time the appropriate keys are
pressed in the password entry screen. Because it is generated randomly, a
master password can only be used to unlock the OmniBook once. If the user
forgets the password at another time, it will require another call to Support. (If
the user presses the appropriate keys by mistake, pressing [ESC] will allow
entering the stored password.)
The password descramble programs for the HP OmniBook PCs are protected
as HP Company Private information. They may not be copied, backed-up,
printed or distributed. There are only six official copies of each program.
In addition to the program being protected, its use is also controlled. HewlettPackard and authorized support providers must ensure with written evidence
that the OmniBook that is being "descrambled" is actually in the hands of the
unit's actual and current owner. This requires a sales receipt showing the unit
serial number and owner's name, or a written statement from the owner
attesting that he or she is the owner of the unit. The statement can be a FAX
copy of the document. The fact that the unit is in the hands of an HP
representative on behalf of the customer is not evidence of ownership. In
addition, HP will not descramble a unit for any non-owner, even if it involves
law enforcement agencies. If you receive such a request, you should notify
management and HP Corporate Legal immediately. (These requests may
require a court order prior to our participation.)
75
Further, you must log the name, serial number and date of the running of the
descramble program, and file the written backup with the log. The log and
backup are subject to standard record retention process and review.
The final issue relating to descramble of passwords is that HP cannot provide
information to users that would assist them in improperly descrambling a
password and opening a unit.
