Question about Cisco ASA 5510 Firewall
ASA5510 Suddenly does not Work, Active LED off, I can't ping to ASA5510, also can't access the CLI through the console or the ASDM through the Startup Wizard using the browser. Is this normal? how do I get around this problem.
It sounds as though you may have a failed power supply. If that is the case you will not be getting any response from the device. If you are getting activity (fans spinning, LED activity) then there is a different issue.
Plug a console cable into the device and open up a terminal window (I prefer putty). Make sure your serial settings are 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity and no flow control. Once you have your putty window open, reboot the device. You definitely should have some activity on your terminal screen during the boot process. If the characters are unreadable, your ASA is set to use non-standard serial settings. In this case, you will have to guess at what they are. When I have seen this in the past, it was due to someone trying to xmodem an image to the device and upped the baud to its maximum of 115200. You can try that.
However, once you get the device to respond via its console cable, you will have more information to determine the root cause of this issue. For example, are you getting errors on POST (power on self test)? Is the device loading into ROMMON (ROM Monitor)? Are the ASICs passing POST? Once you have this information, you can ask about your specific issue here on fixya, or you can search Cisco documentation to find further information.
Furthermore, I always recommend purchasing/renewing your Cisco SmartNet contracts. This will give you access to Cisco TAC and allow you to get parts replacement in case of hardware failure.
I hope this helps.

Try to reset the device again and connect to a different power source.
