This is a liquid scintillation counter. it died after the cmos battery died. the machine moves samples around ok, but after lowering a sample down, it does not count (0.0 at time) and stays there.
someone came over, replaced a timer card, it started counting, but gave wrong results (e.g. 2000 dpms for blanks).
then it stopped again like before card replacement. I am suspecting it is a simple CMOS setting causing this?
I should have recorded the cmos setting but did not. if someone has one identical model (with either a HD, or a floppy drive), it has an internal computer that drives the machine...I need the BIOS setting to see if that is causing the problem.
