1. Failure Phenomenon
Miner fan does not turn on or LED light does not turn on after boot.
2. Possible Cause
The fan wiring of the miner is loosened, the power supply line of the control board of the miner is disconnected, the AC power input is not connected, the power module is broken, the control board is broken, and the power output is short-circuit protected.
3. Inspection and repair method
• Power on the whole miner, turn on the power switch of the miner, and plug in the network cable connected to the switch (or router). Check that the network port link light is blinking. If the network portlight is off, the MM control board is out of power.
You need to check the power cable connection, replace the power supply, or check whether there is a short circuit in the power output.
• If the network port light is on, but the MM control board LED is off, you need to replace the MM control board.
• If the MM control board LED is on but the fan does not rotate, check the fan cable or replace the fan.
1. Failure Phenomenon
• The mining pool cannot be connected for a long time (more than 5 minutes) after booting up (the miner lights up a yellow for a long time, does not turn green, and has no hash rate).
• The miner can be connected to the mining pool after power on (miner's LED light is green), but no hash rate.
2. Possible Cause
• POOL configuration fault.
• Network configuration fault.
• Miner can’t go outside the network.
• Miner power doesn’t have main output(fault wire connection, overload, short or broken).
• Miner hash board can’t work.
• Miner overhot Protection.
3. Check and repair
• If you cannot use the PC to connect to the miner through the network, you can try to restore the factory settings after confirming that the network environment is normal, the network cable is firmly connected, and the miner is turned on normally. For the method of restoring factory settings, see Appendix 1.
• Check the current firmware version of the miner. It is recommended to use FMS to update to the latest version. For the upgrade method, see Appendix III.
• Check hash board status.
• Click Overview to check the operational status shown in ② in the figure below. Usually, it should be In Work. If OverHot indicates overheating shutdown, you need to check the fan and ambient temperature as follows.
• Check the number of Hash Boards shown in ③ in the figure below. For 104x series, the value should be 2. If the value is 1, you need to contact our after-sales personnel to deal with it. If it is 0, you need to check the power status according to the following.
1) Check Power, temperature, network status, fan status.
Click Log on the left side .see below:
Check the following fields in the suitable interface:
• NETFAIL（As shown in②）:Recorded the time of disconnection from the mining pool (if it has not been disconnected or has never been connected to the mining pool, it is all 0 here). In this record, the odd-numbered items (items 1, 3, and 5) are when the mining pool was disconnected, and the even-numbered items (items 2, 4, and 6) are when the connection to the mining pool is restored. For example, suppose only the odd-numbered items have data and the even-numbered items are 0. In that case, it indicates that the connection to the mining pool is currently disconnected and has not been restored (usually because the server at the mining pool end is overstressed and disconnected. If it frequently occurs for a long time, you can replace other mining pools with mining.) SYSTEM STATU: Records the current working status, normally In Work (as shown in ③.) Among them, Hash Board (shown as ④): the number of hash boards in operation, for 104x models, it should be 2. If it is 1, you need to contact the after-sales service. If it is 0, you need to check the status of the power supply further.
• Temp is ambient temperature, not exceeding 35℃。
• TMax is highest ASIC IC temperature, not exceeding 85℃。
• TAvg is average ASIC temperature.
• If you see any of the above temperature items are too high (Temp exceeds 35, Tmax exceeds 85, TAvg exceeds 68), you need to check the fan speed (as shown in ⑥).
For 104x models, only Fan1 and Fan2. If the fan speed is average, you need to reduce the indoor temperature and ensure good ventilation around the miner.
• Vo (shown as ⑦) is the average chip voltage, which is normally 32x.
• PS (shown as ⑧) is the power state. The meaning of items 1-6 is as follows:
a. Item 1: Error code. Normal is 0. Other values indicate power failure or output short circuit.
b. Item 2: Voltage supplied to the control board. Normal is 12xx.
c. Item 3: Voltage (unit: 10mV) for the hash board (normally between 1200 and 1400).
d. Item 4: The current output by the power supply to the hash board, specifically related to the output power and voltage.
e. Item 5: The output power from the power supply to the hash board. For 104x models, the normal value is between 1800-2500 (in W).
f. Item 6: The expected output voltage from the power supply to the hash board, configured by the control board.
If the six parameters of the power supply PS field are all 0, the control board cannot communicate with the power supply. Please check the line connection. If the connection is correct, the power supply needs to be replaced.
2) Check whether the configuration of the mining pool, miner, and miner passwords is correct.
In the backstage of the miner, click Pool on the left side, check the configuration of Pool, Worker, Password, and finally click the Save button to save the settings.
3) Check Network setting
a. Click NetWork on the left. The default configuration is DHCP mode. If all data here is empty, press F5 to refresh the page.
b. If you use a static I P, pay attention to the DNS configuration. Incorrect DNS configuration will cause the miner to be unable to access the mining pool.
c. The DNS address commonly used in China is 184.108.40.206, and the DNS address commonly used outside China is 220.127.116.11.
Notice: After modifying the configuration, you need to click the save button to save the configuration.
