[SOLVED] Minix won't turn on after unexpected unplug

#1
Hi guys,

I on an accident unplugged the extension cord where the AC was plugged in and now i can't get life in the box, i have tried to hold down the power button for some seconds, no luck.

Any ideas?

Are you getting any power at all to the Z83? (LED showing or USB devices still getting power?)

It's possible a surge/power spike from your sudden unplugging of the extension you're using has blown the power supply unit!!

Hi,

No light in the LED.
What is the chances for the power supply to fry?? i haven't experienced any other power supply's like these getting fried of a unexpected unplug.

I'd say the chances are indeed minimal but given the issues you're experiencing & the events you've described as well, not impossible. It happens.

@MINIX - John, any input on this matter please?

Hi John,

Thanks for replying.
I bought a universal power supply with the same voltage and amp as the original one and we got it to work again.
Do you still want me to mail you?
Yes, you may. If the unit is still within its warranty period we can provide you with a new, spare power adapter free-of-charge.
