My daughter's SB3 died.

The power supply is good.

But no display or anything.

I tried to reset to factory holding ADD on power up.

Is there something that commonly fails on these?

Is there something that commonly fails on these?

IS there any visible red light from the Toslink?
Have you tried a Xilinx reset (hold 1 on power-up)?
Has it been dropped - maybe the wireless card is dislodged?

Is there light out of the toslink hole ?

Is not the display or the PS the most common failures ?

God catch phil.

A broken wifi card can halt the entire SB3 so try to remove the wifi card and run it wired ?

The Toslink Light was dead.
Xilinx reset did nothing.

Popped it apart.

Popped off wifi.

Still dead.

Then I noticed the daughter card that wifi mounts on was not fully seated.

Pushed it in and bingo. Good as new.

Thanks for the help.
