production today has the Jul 5th edition WinCE with the Clock Fix Utility run on
were some units sent to Georgia that didn't have a valid time and date in the
RTC as they were manufactured with the June 7th edition of WinCE and that
edition couldn't set a time and date properly. These units are being
upgraded to Jul 5th edition and the RTC corrected at the Atlanta Georgia
warehouse as they are found. As all production
at that time this occurred (mid to late June) had been directed to Georgia, I
believe that Georgia is the only place that should experience this.
said that, it may be that some units were redirected from Georgia shipments to
accommodate priorities in other accounts. If the units in any of your
accounts have Jul 5th edition WinCE and the unit displays "No battery"
in the lower right corner then your first assumption would be to run the Clock
Fix Utility. I wouldn't even bother to check the battery connections until
this utility was run first.
what point does manufacturing (what point in delivery to which sites) did this
get caught. Is it corrected in shipments to accounts today. What
accounts do we need to check on this?
believe the password you have is only for the July 5th edition of WinCE
and not the Clock Fix Utility. Try the password in the info directly
<ClockFix Utility Information>
This program (nk.bin) is loaded from the PCMCIA card by the boot
loader and then initializes the PIC's RTC. The program does not get
copied to the internal Flash therefore there is no need to re-load the WinCE
image after running the clock fix program. If a valid date already
exists then the date will not be modified.
The ClockFix program is on the ftp
site under the BS4Fix directory. It is called ClockFix.zip and
password is "and83jd92ndjs". Unzip the file and copy it to a PCMCIA card,
then insert the card into the bottom PCMCIA slot and turn the AVTS unit on.
It will display a message that it is fixing the clock and then when it is
done it will tell the user to turn to unit off.
