Hi Renauld... What specifically is the problem? When you press the binary
switch does it not go from satellite to satellite?  Does it loose its
settings, time, keps, frequencies, or other settings?

There is a lithium battery that is switched on at JP13.  Did you disconnect
it when you put it into storage 5 years ago?  Check the voltages at the
battery.  I have 2 of these and they are from the mid 1990's and fortunately
I haven't had to replace the batteries yet.

hello all

my 'old' trackbox  (dusty!) ,after 5 years of sleep, doesnt work in stand
alone mode anymore ; terminal mode works perfectly. Ram has been cleared ,
clock adjusted, new keplers loaded ; version is 3.50b.

Any ideas ?
