PSL Shutdown

My 6500 has developed a problem. It has worked flawless since I got it about 6 months ago.
Yesterday, after re-configuring the cabling to accommodate a new PA, it suddenly shutdown and displayed a PSL13V8-xx.xx error. The xx.xx is to indicate that the value varies after each shutdown (I  tried to bring it up several times). The shutdown occurs quickly after each attempt to transmit. I have done a reset of the radio, and also rebooted the power supply (an Astron 25A switching PS). Nothing seems to clear the problem. I have removed all connections except for the key and the dummy load.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Bob, W5LT

Solved: I disconnected, then re-seated all PowerPole connections from PS to Radio. It again transmits full power. Seems either one of them came loose, or one of the contacts did not make full contact for some reason. I did not think check them because everything had been working fine for months.
Thanks Tim, I will know now to check for such things first!
