Default DIGI003 fails at power on.

Hi there,
I have a DIGI 003 rack plus. Sometimes it starts well and others not.
When not start well, made repeated clicks and the red light flashes adat out.
After a period of disuse, rebooted properly, and then suddenly fail again.
I posted this video so you can see what I mean.


Anyone else has happened?
Thank you.

Default Re: DIGI003 fails at power on.

I know the 003 was a serious update over the 002, but given the history, I would find the power supply, re-seat connections(several times) and then follow the harness out to the various circuit boards and re-seat any/every connection that can be unplugged(and when I say "re-seat", I mean unplug-replug and repeat 5-6 times on each connection). The idea is that by working these connections several times, the scraping action will scrape thru any oxidation buildup that might be on the pins and sockets(a little spritz of Caig's De-Oxit might not hurt either) I realize that the 003 is NOT known for this issue, but your video shows a very similar symptom(and the 002 power harness was/is known for failing in a similar fashion)

watching the video again, the power supply is on the left side and the clicking is almost certainly a relay that may not be getting enough current to keep it in its ON position.
