Install host interface card

If you removed a HIC from the original controller canister, you must install that HIC in the new controller canister.

Before you begin

  1. Using a #1 Phillips screwdriver, remove the four screws that attach the blank faceplate to the replacement controller canister, and remove the faceplate.
  2. Align the three thumbscrews on the HIC with the corresponding holes 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.
  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 thumbscrews.

  4. Hand-tighten the HIC thumbscrews.
    Do not use a screwdriver, or you might over tighten the screws.
  5. Using a #1 Phillips screwdriver, attach the HIC faceplate you removed from the original controller canister to the new controller canister with four screws.
