Olser RS/6000's have a led digital counter (dial)on their front panel. Mine got stuck on 102 during hot boot (startup) and won't proceed. What does that code mean?

According to IBM documentation, the 102 code during startup is a "normal" status which means:
Built-in Self Test Started following Power On Reset.

But if you had a 888 flushing code,
followed after reset by 102 code, that means:
Unexpectd system Halt during normal operation.
