Having an issue with the 6600M front panel. It all started today after weeks of doing the last V3 update. I am also submitting a HD ticket, but since this is a holiday I am posting it to the forum in case someone knows a solution.
About 50% of the time now when I power the 6600M up the front panel does not fully populate.
And if I touch something on the screen I get this error
When I hit the power button to shut down, it will go through it’s shutdown process and appear to turn off but the buttons stay back lit.
I have done the cold start with a long press of the power button a few times. Removed power for a fair bit of time, etc.
When the 6600M is in
this mode I can still use SSDR without an issue.
i also have had this issue and had submitted help desk ticket..all we did was factory reset and all was better for a while. Never found any root cause.
it has happened a few times since the help desk ticket but now i am more aware of what i may have been doing prior to the incident.
one case was i was using my ipad to run four slices on the 6600m, This disconnects the internal screen as the control. I turned off the 6600m before returning control to the internal tablet of the 6600m.
Another case i was running DPSDR also running multiple slices. There i was bit more careful first to shut down DPSDR and have the internal tables of the 6600m resume control.
Other than those two cases i have not been able to duplicate a sequence of events that seem to cause it to happen.
