    The ALWON Jumper bypasses the battery incase of failure.–s2-
    Page 61
    I curious what would happen if you just used the jumper and didn’t replace the battery. Something else seems to be going on here and I’m not sure what it is.

    Chadd, I just rearranged the jumper today – everything worked. It took a little longer to load, possibly due to a disconnected lan wire. The time and date were reset, at first glance this is all, I haven’t looked at it in detail yet. The layers of the show are all in place. I have GLD112-inside there everything is the same with 80.

    Many thanks to all those who found this simple solution! And a huge minus in the karma of developers!

    Hi Guys,

    I’m having the same problem on my GLD-80, but sometimes the screen even has coloured lines on it (please see example). My biggest issue is that my SBC looks different to the one in the examples, hence I cannot find the correct jumpers to start troubleshooting, bios recovery, etc.

    Has anyone had the same problem? Is this perhaps an earlier version of the desk?

    I suspect the bios to have an “auto start on power” setting which tells the main board to boot whenever power is present. A drained battery may cause that option to be “forgotten” due to the loss of battery voltage.
    Seems to me that the jumper is that setting in hardware form. Not to override a battery check.

    Adriaan; Our GLD 80 at church has that same SBC. Ours is a chrome edition, so from that perspective I would think it is a later version. No idea if yours is a chrome edition or not though. Ours gets those coloured lines while it is booting up as well, but doesn’t seem to affect it otherwise so I can’t help you there.
