If I turn my SD 1 on, I just get a blank screen. I can hear a floppy disk sound and after that nothing happens any more. The system does not boot - at least it looks like. What I would like to do is a reset. I guess that there is a key combination which I have to press while turning the unit on. So, does anyone know this keys or had a similar problem?
Thanks for helping.

Hi Christian,

It sounds like your SD1 is messed up with an (incomplete ?) Operating system.
You could try to download OS 3 at first from the website. (software)
Follow the instructions given :
Insert a floppydisk with the unzipped files into the drive.
While switching on the SD1, keep F6 pressed and your 'upgrading' will start automatically.

Hope this helps !

Roel is correct; however, if his suggestion fails, chances are that you have a problem with the motherboard. In any case, if you purchased the SD1 less than one year ago, you are entitled to a free repair with complete replacement of the defective part at any authorized Ketron center.
