The Honeywell MX7 is retired but still a fixture in warehouses and distribution centers.  To get the most out of this product, here’s a couple of troubleshooting tips for the device.

Warm boot will save configurations made to the RFTerm Terminal Emulator, the Summit Radio, and the Control Panel Settings.  It will reload the System, Client, and CAB Files from RAM to Flash Memory.

  1. Select the Windows Start Button / Select Run.  On the command line type, “warmboot” (All one word)
  2. Press and Hold the RED (On / Suspend) Button, located at the bottom left of the unit, for 10 seconds to warm boot the device. This is the only way to reset if the device is locked or frozen.                             

Cold boot restores Factory Defaults to RFTerm Terminal Emulation, Summit Radio, Control Panel changes, and will remove Client software from the System Folder.

  1. Select the Windows Start Button / Select Run. On the command line, type “coldboot” (All one word)
