only focus and readout intensity controls on the front panel work.,
pressing the Delta T or V have no effect.
I believe it's the A/B trig button you press to get out of the POST display.
If the "Kernel" tests are failing, you'll see a decoding chart for the lit
front-panel LEDs on page 6-13 of the service manual.
