Was working FT8 today on 20M running 30 watts from my Flex 6300 when it shutdown. No warning at all, lights out, shutdown. I felt the back of the rig and it was very hot. Let the radio cool off and it will not power back up. it is a certified preowned that I bought from Flex back in Jan..

Any Ideas?

Thanks

Update!!, I decided I would check PS voltage with the Flex connected as before I checked it static without the rig. It was 1.2v!!. I thought maybe the PS had a failure so I hooked up another. An Astron SS30M, all was good until I hooked the Flex up. I showed around 2v but 28 amps?? I shut the PS off and when I did the green LED flashed. I turned the PS back on and it showed normal output, 13.8 with no current. Pressed the power button on the Flex and it began to boot up, took a while but it booted. Hooked everything back up and it seems to be working fine again. I did install the volt and temp monitor utility. I would like to see F temps, but C works.

Thanks to all who helped out.
