According to vaxarchive, the switch should be up, which it is, but it
doesn't work even when the switch is down.  The box is connected to a
VT320, which works (I have tried a known good VT from my
MicroVAX). Nothing is diaplayed on the VT.  This box worked ok as recently
as 2 or 3 months ago, so I hope nothing got fried.

No info on the LEDs there... Seems DEC didn't want people to know what
they meant. THanks for the link to the manual though. Hadn't run across
that one.
