According to my 7013-500 series Installation and Service Guide, that 
code translates to "A loss of primary power has occurred."  You might 
want to check fuses in the power supply, and that the switch is good 
(it doesn't have something loose that's only suppling power when you 
hold it up).

I've got a machine with a compatible power supply that's about to be 
replaced with a faster machine (a 590) if you need a power supply.  Let 
me know off-list if you want it.
