Supertrue BIOS settings?

I'm doing some work on an AMEK BIG console with Supertrue automation. The CMOS battery has died and left me with a non-functioning console. Anyone have the BIOS settings for this thing?

Also, is it possible to use the console without the computer hooked up? The console is new to this facility, and when hooked up initially (without the computer) it was acting very strangely (fader resolution was about zero, cracking open the fader the slightest amount would clip the Master bus). When I hooked up the PC, it started working normally. Then, later, I had the PC disconnected and it still was working normally.

We don't really need the automation, and would really like to dispose of the PC if possible. If that's not possible, then I really need to get the PC working.

My memory of running a BIG is (thankfully) fading. I can attest that it is possible to operate the thing in normal "no automation" made without the computer hooked up. Ran ours for a number of years that way.

I don't have the docs since I sold ours, so I won't be much help other than saying you should be able to have the desk function correctly without the automation computer.

I want to remember that there is some sort of "automation defeat" kind of button on the Master module. Maybe look for that...up high on the strip near the meter bridge...

Thanks! That helps a lot just knowing that it should run ok without the PC. I wonder why it was so wigged out the first time I tried it....?

because you turned it on with the automation toggled on and no computer was hooked up to complete the control loop when you turned it on.

what are the numbers (usually screen printed) on the motherboard?

post a pic of the insides
