  • BowlandX VDB Error #1

    Had a power outage before I came in today. The lanes showed no comm, so I could not upload with erase memory. I manually reset the VDB, and as soon as the screens pop up they alternate lanes flashing red screens and it says error. Then the screens stay black with the serial number and node and Error #1.

    What is this error? Can it be repaired?

      just remembered, i had a pair do the same thing. tried reboot, and manually power on and off. still error 1, tried program reset, as well as uploading the wrong program(MI330 or something like that), in the end i swapped the vdb out with another and the pair worked fine. verdict was bad vdb, had to exchange it as a core and got a refurb.

        I got that pair up and running with back up VDB, but now I don't have a spare. I was thinking it was something was bad. So probably not repairable

          The red flashing screens indicate the motherboard battery is dead. It's soldered in. QAMF can repair it.
