The code is for Hard drive failure. Try replacing the connection cable. Check the power supply for correct voltages. If this does not work you will need to replace the hard drive. Hope this helps

Sunnytek, As previously stated the error indicates HDD failure. The drive will have to be ordered from GE if the HDD has actually failed. We have set up a bench to read HDD and to clone or reload drives. The error displayed only indicates that the HDD is not communicating. The drive is under the keyboard. Some machines use a SCSI to IDE adapter and some connect directly. All cables etc have to be checked. On the positive side the drives are less than 1GB. If you connect a PC as a terminal you may be able to read the drive files depending on the failure. The drive is custom formatted. We have not been able to find the exact low level format type. It is not Windows, MSDOS, CPM or Unix. The software for the Logiq series is written in an old software called Venus which is similar to Unix. That is as far as we have gotten. If you do find out how to reformat the drive please let me know. Otherwise the HDD preloaded is anywhere from $400 to $560 on the ones we have checked prices. I would go to GE. I have had numerous offers of used drives for almost the same price. All the best, Ron.

I also experienced this error and after some time the screen and keyboard went blank. What could make screen go blank?
