Table 1-1 Keyboard Locked Condition
Cause Method of Clearing
Terminal not connected to computer. Communication line signals are not correct for communication. Cleared when a connection exists between computer and terminal. Check CTS and DSR indicators to determine if a connection exists.
Half-duplex communication is selected (by modem control SET-UP feature) and terminal is receiving characters. Terminal cannot transmit characters when receiving characters in half-duplex. Cleared when line turns around and terminal can transmit characters.
