Minitaur not booting over the weekend, but it's OK now

Postby Purusha » Wed Jul 25, 2018 10:21 am

Anyone else seen something like this?

Over the weekend, my Minitaur refused to boot. It went into a mode where all the lights flashed every few seconds.

Repeated power-cycle reboots, didn't clear the problem.

After an extended power down though (a few minutes), it was OK.

How much do I need to worry?

:cry:

I had this problem again last night. Repeated power cycling didn't clear it.

Unplugged all connections for 5 minutes, then powered up OK.

This is looking like either poor connection somewhere, or a firmware issue along the lines of uninitialised variable / memory location.

In case it helps someone else, support are saying that this might be down to the ribbon connector to the front-panel being at fault.

Edit: The fault was - the power supply! All's well with a replacement.
