    How dead is this Boom...?

    Greatly encouraged back to LMS through the use of RPi I unearthed an old boom gathering dust to go with my other devices - it had been put away having had the typical display failure problem (but Ive read some encouraging blogs how this might be fixed) but what is the best way of determining how 'dead' it really is - I dont want to waste time. All that happens are the backlights coming on and flashing about every two seconds. I hooked an ethernet cable up hoping it would show up in LMS page but no luck. What steps could I take to check it out? Thx

    Have you just tried a different PSU first? Might be the easiest step 1). It's just a 12v, 2.5A centre positive psu.

    This was the same behavior with one of my Booms, and the solution was a replacement PSU. Has been running an additional 2 years since and still going. I bought the official Boom PSU sold by Logitech.
