So im looking at doing my CCNA, so i got a second hand 3524XL off ebay with a bunch of routers, anyway, ive worked with some 3524's before, but ive never seen this.....
When i power it on, i get the following
The RPS light is amber
The following link lights are amber: 3, 7, 11, 15, 19 and 23
There are no ethernet cables connected at all.
When i plug into the console, i get garbage currupt charecters, nothing that makes any moderatly decipherable sense. Its things like the copyright symbol etc
I tried all the speeds (that was a fun hour or so )
No other LEDs are on at all, after leaving it on for an hour or so, NOTHING changes.
I tried holding in the mode button while its on, no response at all
Tried holding down the mode button and powering it on, the only change is that LED's 3 and 23 dont turn on, leaving LED's 7, 11, 15, 19 on
Powered it all off overnight, rinse repeat, no change
After googling for a bit i found nothing except if you remove 15 you get prime numbers!
So does anyone know what this means and is it fixable?
I opened it up, there are a few bulging capacitors on the main board, the PSU is fine....... Ill replace them at some point, but could it be the issue?
Im connecting just with the Std IEC lead, not the RPS, dont have one of those :'(
So yeah, anyone able to shead some light on this for me?
