Incorrect Wiring on P2

   Some dual async adapters (PN 72X8529, FRU 6450347) will cause the system to power off when a plug is inserted into the second async port. This is caused by an incorrect connection of L2.
  The component at location L2 should be connected to the nearest pin hole (RIGHT), which is the ground of the card. It should not be connected to the next pin hole (WRONG) which is the -12 volt land.

   The system will not power up when an external device (printer, plotter, modem, etc.) is connected to Port 2. This includes any device that has signal and frame ground connected together. If the device does not have the two grounds connected together, the system will power up. However, the device will not be functional when connected to Port 2.  To determine if the device is functional, it should be tested on Port 1. 
   Refer to the diagram to determine if you have an affected card. Ed. It looks like one could unsolder the left wire of L2 from the WRONG position, and resolder it into the RIGHT position.
