Topic: Infocast 3.5 fails to boot
Well, this is a new one on me.
I have an Infocast 3.5 on my desk before me.
I use it for the space clock and for the streaming. Hahaha.
Sorry, that was a joke. As you can imagine, I have seen enough space clock to last me the rest of my life.
So I was sitting here, and I pushed the button on top to select a stream. It blinked, and went blank.
I thought, "how odd".
I pulled the plug and plugged it back in and it said Inisgnia, the green screen.
Then the screen went white, and it never booted.
It's done that a few more times. Never boots. Never downloads control panel. Never does anything.
Could this unit have damaged it's flash somehow?
It never got to "downloading control panel".
Hm. Well, this is getting more weird.
I have more as you can imagine, a few spares.
I plugged another one in to the same ps.
It acts the same.
So I took the "failed" unit across the room and plugged it into the ps that was running another one, and it boots fine.
It seems I have a spontaneous ps failure. Happened before my eyes.
This is a generic 5v power supply that happened to fit, not an original chumby ps. Or infocast ps.
I emailed the forum member, Doktor Jones I think, about those adapters he was making, but I didn't receive a response. I think I need some of those.
