Hi,happy new year folks
Working in a g&r machine taken from a garage(last 8 years),when turning on cpu won’t boot,pia is on the center led also,but the blinking one no.This is my first DE machine,so I I’m need of help

The center led is only a 5v led. It just shows if there is 5v going to the board. Have you checked for corrosion? DE is not really different than any other system when it comes to booting. it is actually a copy of system 11.
Here is some good info

No corrosion, batteries taken out

When DE boards dont boot the two most likely culprits are corrosion and the 6808 processor. Since it isnt the corrosion next step is to check the processor, or just replace it with a 6802. The link i posted has a ton of info on fixing DE boards. If you have never done board work and diagnostics before it may save your sanity to buy a rottendog replacement.
