WiCMC restart when VGA cable connected

WiCMC restart when VGA cable connected


WiCMC stopped answering calls.

While connecting VGA cable saw a short and whole ipx500 restarted.



RE: WiCMC restart when VGA cable connected

Maybe completely unrelated. Connecting a cable to a socket that had bent pins could've resulted in a short and that's why the system restarted.

Is the WiCMC up now? If not, take the card out and plug it in to another system to test.

RE: WiCMC restart when VGA cable connected

System came back up when I unplugged the VGA cable, ran normally from there. I didn't see any bent pins but didn't initially check. Thanks for the suggestion.
