Question about RCA D6520

Unit Very warm to hot

I have been operating the RCA D6520 multi-switch for a couple of years with four receivers. System works well but I noticed quite by accident (switch in attic) that the switch was very, very warm (almost hot). I wonder if this is normal or should I be alarmed?? Thanks in advance for your thoughts. Phil

It is not normal. This should alarm you. Any device that has warm-hot surface, manifest internal problems and should be given extra attention.

Netgear FSM (and GSM) switches have an RS232 serial console port. Connect to that using Hyperterm, PuTTY, Xterm etc. at 9600-8-N-1, and power up the switch. Early in the boot process, it will give you a choice of normal operation, or the boot menu. Select the boot menu before the time runs out (usually a couple seconds), and one of the options will be to reset the switch configuration, including the password.

Switch with 8 leds blinking (and not working)

You probably have to buy another switch. However, before you try that - the eighth most right cable - switch that out to see if it was a cable problem. That's an easy thing to try before you buy another switch.

I have a sony trinitron Model kv27v65 that will not turn on. The standby/timer light blinks four times. It was working fine earlier today and we don't know what caused the problem.

Internally the 4 blinks means that the vertical deflection circuitry has Stopped.
This requires repair or replacement depending on your preference.

Sorry for the bad news.

Zinwell 4x8 multi-switch

What Temp is it at?, it does heat up, and it does require room to be well vented, now remember it needs a protected area, where nothing will make contact, where that will start a fire, or Burning sensation.

All the bottom lights flash, then the top light above 8, over and over

Hello all

jpmchugh, I know this response might come to you a bit late, but none the less it might help others who have this issue. I had exactly the same problem until recently, and looks like I found the solution (at least for me). So I thought I'd share it here, since I have not seen a real solution on the various forums I've visited through.

The one common thing I've noted when searching on this and other forums re the 8 bottom blinking lights and then the top right blinking light, repeating over and over again was about a power surge / storm etc.

The exact thing happened to me. A couple of months ago there was a really bad storm, we had a black out in our area and there were some spikes in our electrical systems.

When the black out was over my Gigabit switch was doing the same routine re the lights. The problem for me was the actual power supply unit.

This Switch I've had is about 1.5 yrs old, dunno if I can claim it on warranty from dlink. I've checked the dlink au website and it quotes 5 years, but dunno if it covers storm damage.

Anyways, I took the faulty power supply and the switch to my local jaycar store today. The sales guy noted that the output should be 7.5v, however when he did a test, it was actually showing 12v. He said that the switch must have some sort of built in protection, cause usually supplying 12v to a device that needs 7.5v should have fried the device.

We tried out a replacement power supply and bang.... back in business.

The only kicker was that the replacement power supply cost me around (AUD) $39.95, cause it's one of those fancy multi volt ones. If you can find one that is fixed at 7.5v it might be a cheaper option

Please let me know if this has solved your problem.

We had a GE 7 port usb port and it overheated and melted----thank goodness I got up when I did or the house would have caught on fire. The only thing we had connected to the usb port was a APC battery backup unit. Any reason why the usb port overheated?
It was pugged into the battery backup unit and I am hesitant to rehook the computer up to the battery backup unit and also will not by another GE usb hub again and whatever hub we do use, I will not plug it into an outlet!
the computer was downstairs and I noticed the odor of electrical burning smell upstairs---the unit was bought nov 25, 2007 and we returned it to BJ'S for a refund today-----I do not reccomend this product to anyone.
