    Hey all,

    I sent a message to ED, but figured I would try here too. One of my six p12s controllers that has worked the last two years isn't firing up. I have verified that there's 5v getting to the card, but the indicator lights don't come on (heartbeat). Does anybody have any pointers such as "probe here and here to see if you have 5v, or it could be xx component is dead" or something similar? Like most things, I assume these have a lifetime and I suppose somewhere someone has had one die on them...

    Thanks!

    Louie

    So... Problem solved.... The $@&# jumper wire at the main terminal where voltage is routed to the card was loose... Not sure what made that pop into my head tonight, but that fixed it...
