System time/date corrupted
Posted by wwieczor on 10/02/2010 06:10 PM

I've recently installed an MG1 system that contains 2 KP2 keypads. Both keypads are displaying the time and date as "??/??/?? 33:??" after ~2-3 minutes after a system power cycle. It WILL show the correct system time on the KP2's for ~2-3 minutes after powering up the system. However, it will then immediately revert to showing "??/??/?? 33:??". Attempting to set the system date/time when the KP2's are showing the correct system time through the RP2 software works. Attempting to set the system date/time through the RP2 when the KP2's show the incorrect date/time listed above causes an unhandled exception in the RP2 software and I am unable to update the system time. Elk Phone support on Friday suggested replacing the real-time system clock battery as I did not have my digital multi-meter to confirm proper voltage from the battery. Replacing with a new battery and verifying voltage has not solved the issue. I have also attempted the real-time clock reset procedure mentioned in another post on this forum which did not fix the issue. I understand that the real-time clock draws power from both the battery in the event of power outage as well as the system power when powered up. Running the system WITHOUT a battery results in the same behavior. Does anyone have any suggestions of things to try to fix this issue? Does it look like I am looking at an RMA to fix a hardware issue? This system has been in use for less than one day.

I would try reinstalling the firmware on it.

I am having the same issue. I loaded the latest firmware and still have the same problem. Did you get yours figured out yet?

Here in Australia we were having the same problem just recently the m1 has now being released with new firmware and they are supplying a DC power supply.I thing it had something to do with the 60hz clock that usa are on were we are on 50hz
