I inherited from a used Control:10. With Bruce’s help, I replaced the screen and the CMOS battery. I could not find a flash card on the mother board.

It did work a few times, as a core and a source, with the 400 GB of music I have patiently uploaded on the drive. But today, after sitting turned off for a week, it stubbornly goes straight to the registration screen, like the C10 was fired up for the first time, and doesn’t recognize the C10 as a core (while it sees my MS200 source).

I have not changed a thing to my system.

Is the drive fried?
Can I fornat everything and reinstall so it behave more consistently?
Is it time to retire as a paper weight?

Make sure the multi pin black connector at the bottom of the motherboard is plugged correctly and completely. It is very easy to disturb it when replacing the CMOS battery. It also would be ob benefit to check the SATA cable connection as well. Be patient as sometimes it will take 10 minutes to recognize the music and core.

Thanks for the suggestion Bruce, I'll try that this week-end.

Meanwhile, could someone indicate where I would find the flash card on the C10 motherboard, if installed. Just so I clear this out.

Thank you

Looking at the mother board as it is mounted in the unit it is located at the center bottom of the motherboard. It is pictured on page 15 in the service guide.
