I have a Strand 300 lighting console. We have had it sitting out for six months now, and went to rack mount it today. We put it in the rack, and powered it on, the nnoticed we didn't have the actual console (faders) plugged in. So without turning it off, we plugged in the console via the ethernet cord. The computer part instantly turned off, and we havent been able to start it back up since.
I've checked the fuse and it's good. I know the outlet is still good (a lamp on the same strip works fine). Any other words of advice? We opened it up to see if there was a second fuse or replaceable power supply, but it all looks custom made.
Hopefully phenry will chime in with some insight!
FYI the console is about 12 years old, so no warrenty or anything. We're using this in a seconardy space, so no emergency, but we would like to salvage it if we can.
