Pinned topic System x3550 M3 wont power on

‏2013-03-30T13:30:50Z |
I think I know the answer to my question, but here goes anyway.

Got a warning last night that my Company Server was offline.

Came in this morning and found the amber System Error LED light on
and the server powered off.

Attempts to restart the system failed so I checked the Light Path Diagnostic Panel.

The BRD light was on and it indicated F.4

I pressed the remind button and reseated the power cables. Now it still wont power on
but the Light Path Diagnostics is indicated E.7 with no other leds indicated.

I've opened a service call with IBM. They tell me the System board probably needs replacing.

Does anyone know where I can find more info about the Light Path Diagnostics error codes?

    Dear John,

    all needed info available on the next doc:

    Problem Determination and Service Guide - IBM System x3550 M3 (Type 4254, 7944)

    BTW, try minimum configuration as described in section Solving undetermined problems.
