TL891 master/slave problem

I have a TL891 with the base unit and the expansion unit. I need to run the base unit standalone, but it is set to slave.
How do I break the relationship and make the base unit a master again?

Re: TL891 master/slave problem

To set the library from Slave to Standalone mode from the Library front panel follow the steps below:

- Select CONFIGURATION MENU
- Scroll down to SET SPECIAL CONFIG.
From the Alternate Config option
- Select STANDALONE

You may need to power cycle the library for the changes to take effect.

Thoe other thing you'll need to check is the passthrough plate, if you have the library operating as standalone then the passthrough plate will probably need to be put back in place.
