MSA 1000 disable battery check

On our MSA 1000 with one controller the cache battery fails, showing F1 on the LED. Until I get my new battery I would like to disable the check for the battery because the cache is now disabled and so the performance very poor.

Is there any way to do this to make the controller use the cache without the backup battery (I assume it the one in the upper plastic holder)?

Thanks in advance.

Re: MSA 1000 disable battery check

I am not familiar with MSA1000, but f.e. on MA8000 I can lie to controller about battery replacement and run replacement procedure to no purpose. But, beware to do this, you could lose a data.

Thanks for your reply. Your proposal didn't work for me, but now I got my new battries, they charged in a few hours and now everything runs fine like before.
