HP terminal 700/96

We have a HP 700/96 Terminal on a HP D370 at a remote site. I am told that on the lower left coner of the display is a message "Locked KB". How do we unlock the keyboard?

Hi,

You can press the F4 key or you can reset the terminal and try.

In some terminals you can even set a password and lock the keyboard.

Hi,

Hold down the Left shift key on your keyboard and then reset the terminal.

You can try with the D key also.

Re: HP terminal 700/96

Hi,

The Keyboard Lock message is produced when you accidently cat a binary file to your screen. Keyboard Lock has a number of uses so it is set (and reset) with escape sequences from programs. However, a binary file such as an executable will have random character strings and some of these can affect many settings.

As mentioned, using the Shift-Reset key combination will clear the message on all 700/9x and 238x and 239x HP terminals. For terminal emulators such as WRQ's Reflection for HP, use the Soft Reset (Alt-S) under Connection -> Reset.

The password or special keys used by HP service probably relate to the use of the remote console capability of HP 9000 computers and the keystroke(s) are different depending on what model of 9000 you are using and whether you are using the SupportLink modem, the GSP built-in LAN port, or other support connection.

HTH,

Since this is a remote site and we are the "help" people, I would like to test these items, can you tell me how to lock the keyboard.

Hi


If you own a 700/96-like console, try this sequence:

Hold down Shift while pressing the Reset button (this key should be on the left on your keyboard). This should release the lock.
