Install host interface card

If you removed a HIC from the original controller canister, you must install that HIC in the new controller canister. Install the HIC by gently lowering the card into place and hand tightening the single thumbscrew.

Before you begin

Procedure

  1. Using a #1 Phillips screwdriver, remove the two screws that attach the blank faceplate to the replacement controller canister, and remove the faceplate.
  2. Align the single thumbscrew on the HIC with the corresponding hole on the controller, and align the connector on the bottom of the HIC with the HIC interface connector on the controller card.
    Be careful not to scratch or bump the components on the bottom of the HIC or on the top of the controller card.

    Note: The image above is an example, the appearance of your HIC may differ.
  3. Carefully lower the HIC into place, and seat the HIC connector by pressing gently on the HIC.
    Attention: Possible equipment damage – Be very careful not to pinch the gold ribbon connector for the controller LEDs between the HIC and the thumbscrew.
  4. Hand-tighten the HIC thumbscrew.
    Do not use a screwdriver, or you might over tighten the screw.

    Note: The image above is an example, the appearance of your HIC may differ.
  5. Using a #1 Phillips screwdriver, attach the HIC faceplate you removed from the original controller canister to the new controller canister with the two screws.
