Quoted from jsa:
We have never seen a Scorbitron that won’t reliably start up on the second power cycle in this condition. As I referred to previously, are you disconnecting Scorbitrons after a single failure, or are they they continuing to fail? If so this is new, so please reach out to me directly.
Also do you try the swap I suggested? Let’s narrow down the root cause of the issue.
I’m not there every day to power cycle scorbitrons that fail to initialize the display. Our pins are on dedicated circuits switched by contactors controlled by our lighting system. They turn on automatically at 11am and off 5 minutes before close.
So, when they fail there’s just no DMD for the day. When I notice a machine do it several times I just disconnect the scorbitron
I guess I could program the contactor to be switched on, wait a couple minutes then off and back on but that’s not a very elegant solution
