I have an SP31 which has been down for many months now. I had been to busy to try & fix it but I can do so now. I have fully cleaned out the machine of dust, replaced 2 fans & checked it all over & nothing works. I then Heat Contact Pasted all the ASICS to the Heat Sinks too. Still no joy!
I have tried both the SP31 SD Recovery & Boot Disks & still nothing works at all.
This is what happens when the machine is switched on:
Both Power Supplies are working correctly.
It starts, all fans work, Ethernet is connected but no Boot Up Yellow light Blinking, or Flashing or Anything!!
When I use the Spondoolies My Miner site on the net there is no detection of the miner being found anywhere!!! This is incredibly annoying as I had the machine hashing at 4.8THS, or around, for many months & working 24/7.
Now it has been down for so long I do not know what to do. I have the serial cable but cannot get it to connect to either a desk top or laptop PC at all ??!! Do I need a specific software to use with my Windows based PC's?
I know this machine was built around Oct 2014, & used from Jan 2015 & stopped working July 2015.
I tried so many things & gave up due to work etc.
Now I want to get it working again & start mining at full power once more.
Could it be the Management Board as I doubt both ASIC Boards could both be broken??
I cannot afford to ship it back to Spondoolies or buy new ASIC Boards.
I can afford a new Management Board & replace it if it could be that though.
Can anyone help or point me in the right direction? Is there a thread link to similar problems?
