Please help. How do go about sending my flex3000 for repair? Where do I start?

WalinukWalinuk Member
My Flex3000 powers up fine, was working ok last week but now PowerSDR does not see it. I have tried other Firewire cables/WinXP/Win7/Win10 and on two different computers.I think that a hardware problem might have occured. I wish to know how to go about sending my radio in for repair. Please help.

    Open a ticket with Flex support describing your problem and they will respond with a course of action.  https://helpdesk.flexradio.com/hc/en-us

    Possibly could be the firewire port on the computer. May try reloading the firewire drivers.

    Follow Joe's advice, at least they can help you troubleshoot before sending it in. Do you have another computer card to try?

    That information changes everything. Sorry your having trouble. I have seen this happen to a couple other 3000 as well. I am on my Flex 3000 this week giving my 6500 a break. Fun to go back and forth.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
