Aruba800 boot problem?


We have had an 800 controller sitting in a closet for the past 3 years. If I remember correctly it's only been used once or twice. This is the first I've ever played with it, and spent the whole day yesterday researching and trying to gain access to it to set it back to factory defaults. I've tried connecting every possible way described here and in the manuals, but still am stumped.... I've read once booted the status LED should be a constant green. In my case the status LED "never" turns on, or even flickers....

At this point I'm lost, and looking for any help possible. Thanks in advance!

Plug in the console cable while it is booting to see the output.

Re: Aruba800 boot problem?

Thanks for the reply. I have plugged in through the serial port via cat-5 running to PC COMM port with connector described in documentation. Pinout RJ-45 to DB-9 pin3 to pin2, pin5 to pin5, pin6 to pin3. HyperTerminal settings 9600, 8, None, 1, None.

Applied power and no output displayed...

I am willing to try anything at this point, if you have any other suggestions please let me know.
