Spanish term or phrase: realizar el POST de encendido
AL ACUDIR A LA UNIDAD SE REVISAN LOG DE ERRORES ENCONTRANDO EL CÓDIGO KP0120 'SAFE STATE SYSTEM TEST' INDICANDO QUE EL EQUIPO AL REALIZAR EL POST DE ENCENDIDO DETECTA COMPONENTE FUERA DE RANGO.

No sé en realidad de qué tipo de aparato se trate en este caso.
Probablemente una bomba o algún tipo de monitor para aplicaciones clínicas.

De antemano, agradezco a los expertos cualquier idea, sugerencia o respuesta a mi pregunta.

English translation:perform the power-on self-test
Explanation:
POST, siglas en inglés de power-on self-test o autoprueba de arranque, es un proceso de verificación e inicialización de los componentes de entrada y salida en un sistema computacional que se encarga de configurar y diagnosticar el estado del hardware.

https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/POST

A power-on self-test (POST) is a process performed by firmware or software routines immediately after a computer or other digital electronic device is powered on.

This article mainly deals with POSTs on personal computers, but many other embedded systems such as those in major appliances, avionics, communications, or medical equipment also have self-test routines which are automatically invoked at power-on.
