OEC 9900 boot problem
July 27, 2020 10:57
Hi, guys. I have a OEC 9900 Elite system that doesn't boot up. The C-arm gets stuck after 11 arrows, and the left monitor shows this error message:
"SYSTEM ERROR DETECTED
X-rays are disabled. Turn the system off, wait 10 seconds, and then restart the system.
If this message persists, call for service.
Service Information: Vortex IP board is not detected!"
I cannot connect with the system with UtilitySuite. When monitoring the booting process with the switch in the Display Adapter in service mode, it seems that the system is trying to erase the flash nodes and reload them, but it fails showing the error "Board firmware validation FAILED!". I reinstalled software but the issue continues.
All voltages seem to be OK in the passive backplane. I cleaned and reseated all the boards in the rack, visually inspected the Vortex IP board and it seems OK. It doesn't turn on any LED after booting. I think it could be the Vortex IP board but I want to be sure. What else should I check?

Hi. Yes, without the c-arm connected, the workstation fails to boot showing exactly the same error messages.
