View Full Version : Dead SB2?

2007-08-25, 03:44
My squeezebox2 has been working happily since I bought it just over 2 years ago. This evening I noticed that the display was blank, so I tried power-cycling it, but to no avail. There is 5V coming from the power supply, and when power is applied to the device the optical audio connector glows red, but nothing appears on the display and as far as I can tell it does not appear to communicate on the network. Pressing buttons on the remote (including brightness, and holding down the add button) does nothing.

The last entry in the slimserver log is well before the unit died. The last firmware upgrade (whatever is current for slimserver 5.5) was done weeks ago, so I doubt that could be responsible. All indications suggest that the hardware is kaput :(

Do I have a terminal SB2, or is there anything else I can try to revive it?

Try a factory reset, unplug power, press and hold ADD, replug power. If you don't get the splash screen after 10-15 seconds, contact support.
