When powering on today the 6700 display gave me "Error PSH5V3-5.87" can someone tell me if this is a big deal or just dismiss as a glitch and grab another coffee ?

    If I remember there was a posting a long time back I believe it has to do with a voltage problem you might want to do a little searching on voltage problems. The flex people can tell you for sure what it is.

    Shutting Down... "Error PSH5V3-5.87" means that the nominal 5.3volt buss is seeing a high out-of-tolerance reading of 5.87 volts. My 6500 is currently in Austin being checked for the opposite problem, occasional low-voltage errors on the 13-volt buss, "PSL" rather than PSH errors. I'll let you know if they are able to track down the sources of the problem.

    Good information Rick, not sure if I feel like raising a support ticket as I have only seen it 4 or 5 times in many hours of operation.
