We would look at it and ponder and study the manuals and ask people questions, and then "Kaboom" it was O.K. though we really never did anything that we knew of.

We called that an "RBI."

"Repair by Inspection."

Glad to be able to help.




That sounds scarey when dealing with a airplance, but a little android malfunction puts in all in perspective.

If it were the IS&T Dept. they would say reboot it. That was always their fix.

Actually that is what I did, unplug look at it, plug look at, again, repeat.
