New Start Up --- Hardware Initialization

  • Question
  • Updated 1 week ago
My 6700 and Maestro just got back from the service department at Flex. The 6700 was drifting and the tuning know on the Maestro stopped functioning. It appears my settings were wiped clean -- OK, no problem.  But, when I try to start things through the Maestro, it dead-ends on a screen saying, "Waiting for Hardware Initialization (Y, K, YTS)" What do I do?

Some people have seen this error when Maestro is NOT plugged in to AC adapter or the AC adapter does not properly seat into the Maestro...

Not sure if that is your case, but worth a try.

The connections all look good here.  I double checked.  Thanks

I had the exact issue. Took it in cause I live close. It was a loose connector to the board inside the Maestro. If you feel ok with opening the case you can check easily.

Ray ---  Thank you.  I think I'll run this on a ticket and see what they say.  If they say, "Go ahead and open it," I'll have a look.   I'm only home for a day, so it will probably have to wait a week.  Ralph - K0IR
