We had a power outage yesterday and since then my 6300 will not start up, the green led just keeps flashing, have tried to factory reset but no luck, if I hold the power button in the most it will do is change colour to flashing white/grey. Have removed all connections and dc power for a good 2 hours, as soon as power is connected we go right back to flashing green led.

There seems to be a timeout situation happening on some 6300s.  When the radio is booted up, after a few minutes, the radio is still showing a flashing green power LED.  If the radio is shut down by pressing and holding the power button until it shuts down, then immediately powered back on with a single press and release of the power button (not a press and hold), then the radio will start up normally.  We are actively investigating this behavior to determine root cause.
