Anyone seen this error message and knows what it might be that causes it? Before i start ripping everything apart here to check the internal fuse I was cuorious if anyone had any idéa in what direction I should be looking? No warranty, so would be nice to know if it's a possibel DIY job or something worse.

Took a quick look in the manuals and made a search here, but couldn't find any list of error codes.Maybe have to open a ticket? but start by asking the community.

Tighten your power cables and try a different power supply first. If that doesn't fix it, it's probably the fuse as indicated, or it may require a trip for service.

And while you're in there, blow those dust bunnies out!

Hi Ria :)

Tnx for your comment. I found a similar question, not 100% identical, but close. https://community.flexradio.com/flexradio/topics/flex-6500-error-message-check-fuse

I have planned to replace my old PS anyway. Maybe this was a sign from above ...

Hi Johan,
Several of us have seen this issue.  In my case it was a dirty fuse.  Details here:

Tnx Al and Ria!

Plan is to take the Trx apart for "maintenace" anyway. Probably loads of dust inside .. Been hoping to receive new fans soon, if I should need to replace them.

I'l take it to the workbench asap then. As it sounds, I don't need to loose to much sleep over it.
