My Russound d850 loses all blue lights 2 seconds after

This answer was rated:

Hi, my Russound d850 loses all blue lights 2 seconds after turning on. Red light Standby stays on. We may have had a power cut during the night. Any checks I can do to get it working again?

Customer: 4 years
Assistant: What have you tried so far?
Customer: Turning on and off with the other connected amps Mca 88.
Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.

Was it on standby when you had the power cut, and what happens when you switch it off at the mains for 2 min then back on does it juts go back into the same state with none of the lights flashing?

Hi, yes the blue lights come on for a couple of seconds then go out. I have 2 amps each with 8 feeds. There are 16 wall mounted room zones around the house. When these are pressed on the day ‘initialising’ and then switch off again. I’ve attached a photo of the unit. Thanks

Right it points to a hardware fault on the main PCB, its likely a back EMF or electrical surge when power was restored has caused the main board to fail

My only solution is talking to Russound and get a local engineer to repair?
I am afraid so, if you provide your postcode I can recommend a local firm who can repair it, this isn’t a software fault so there isn’t a way to perform a reset to get it to boot up.
