my new 6600 dies

edited June 2020 in SmartSDR for Windows
my fairly new 6600 was working fine Saturday morning than when I tried to use it late afternoon I kept getting no radio found. performed reset, power off, reset router. no help. after 3rd reset 6600 came to life (using v3) but no receive. noise floor looked normal. connected sig gen and can barely make out a -50dbm on either ant ports. did another "master reset" and now it works again. Any ideas on what was wrong ?
I am afraid of  turning it off now!
Any ideas?

    Where you on Version 3 before the radio started having issues?
    could have been a failed update if you where trying to upgrade from 2.49 
    Where you on the same network as the radio when it said "no radio found" or running SmartLink?
    Direct cable between the radio and PC or Maestro?
    or through a router? 
    More Input required so your questions can be answered.

    TNX FR the quick response Bret. I've been using V3 for the past 2 weeks without any hiccups as far as loading up and using the radio. haven't changed anything. wish i would have taken some screen shots, if it happens again I will !The 6600 is wired to my local lan and my new Maestro is going back to be be fixed once I get my monthly disability check next week but as of now the radio seems to be working fine logged in with my main Win7 PC and Laptop with Win10. I just find it puzzling why it started working again after the 5th "reset"?
