RX5 Pentusa does not boot

Tech Note: TN0135
Product: RX5
Version: All
Date Added: 2004-09-01


The RX5 does not boot when turned on. This is an intermittent problem. When the RX5 fails to boot, the AMP and Status LEDs are not lit and the LCD display is blank. Any device caddies 'below' the RX5 will also have a break in communication, indicated by a slowly flashing power LED.


Turn the RX5 off and all device caddies below it. Turn on the RX5. Wait a couple of second and repeat if necessary. After the RX5 boots, turn on device caddies below it in the system.
