Should I be worried that twice within the past  month my Flex 6330 failed to boot, green light flashed and then 6300 turned off .  Only 2 times in about a 100, each time it came to life on the second try.  Just wondering.

Check the supply voltage. I had some weird problems with the radio turning off when I was sharing a 12 V supply with another rig and accessories. When the voltage to my 6300 dropped, the radio acted up and occasionally shut off.
