8002A PUNCH CHECK
Cause: A punch check occurred on the card punch (2520 or 2540).
This is probably a hardware error.
System Action: If SYSLOG is a console printer-keyboard, the system waits for an operator
response. If not, processing continues after the punch is restarted. The card in error and the
following cards are repunched at the point where the punch check occurred.
Programmer Action: none.
Operator Action: Run out cards in punch, discard last three or four cards (for the 2520, 1
punched and 2 blank cards; for the 2540, 2 punched and 2 blank cards). Ready the punch and
type any character to continue processing.
If the problem persists, issue the ROD command, execute EREP, and retain the listing to
complete your problem determination action.
