EtherLite Power LED is out.

Symptom:

What does it mean if the "ON" LED goes out?

 

Cause:

 

If the ON LED goes out, this means the unit is corrupt.  

 

Solution:


Try resetting the unit to factory defaults using Boot Console.
To gain access to the Boot Console, you will need to attach a terminal or terminal emulator to Port 1 of the Etherlite. A three-wire connection is all that is necessary, connecting TXD, RXD, and GND. The Etherlite does not assert DTR or RTS. If your terminal requires these signals, you will need to loop them at the terminal side. 
The Boot Console operates at 19200 baud, 8 bits, 1 stop, and no parity.
To activate the console: 
1. Remove the Ethernet cable from the Etherlite.
2. Cycle power on the Etherlite. The Link LED should be off and the Power LED flashing. 
3. On the terminal keyboard, press the # key repeatedly until you get a console prompt (should only take 3 strokes).

 

NOTE: Use this only to connect to the EtherLite.

1. At the ? prompt type show

You should get something like this:
EL-16 V1.2
Enet:00:A0:E7:xx:xx:xx
IP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
SM: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
GW: 0.0.0.0
AHIP: 0.0.0.0
AHM: 0.0.0
TFTPIP:0.0.0.0

2. Type reset

3. Reconnect using boot console

4. Type: IP xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (where x represents the IP Address of the EtherLite).

5. Type: tftpip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (where x is the IP Address of the machine giving the IP Address)

6. Type: Store

7. Plug in the Network cable and reboot the EtherLite.

If the power LED doesn''''t come back on or you are unable to get into Boot Console, you will need to send the unit in for repair.
