Flex-3000 died. No pilot light. Fan ok. Mechanical click sounds every second (Relay?)

Alas, my 2011 Flex-3000 just crashed. Symptoms: Pilot light no longer lights although Astron-20 PS shows normal current drain. Fan runs normally. Mechanical clicking noise every second. Software does not load. Any ideas? Thanks, Hal KK6HY.

    That means the rig is not fully completing its power up routine. I would try reloading its firmware from the control app..

    Check for 5 volts. Sounds like the 5 volt regulator is not working or input voltage way too low. Dudley
