First poweron of 6700 - very strong solder odor

I just powered on my new 6700. Pretty quickly, with no transmission (really just getting it connected) a rather overwhelming odor of solder/flux came out, and my power supply fan kicked on hard, despite no over or under voltage warnings.

I turned it off, and the odor continued and lingers. Gave me a headache, to boot.

I'm wondering if this is "normal" for a first power-on, or if something is damaged in the unit.

    Hi KS0T, That does not sound right. I would submit a helpdesk ticket right away.

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.
