Troubleshooting
« on: 2023-04-29, 15:12:49 »
What does it mean when the “status” page shows the Control module as “off”?  The power is on, the LAN is connected, the green “power” light is on.
Background: something has failed.  Trying to connect using the same LAN.  The radio is IC2820.  It works.  Connecting the head to the radio, the radio comes on each time.  Won’t connect over the LAN.  Have gone over the settings in great detail many times, and everything seems to be correct.
Any hints would be appreciated.

Another question: is there any way a voltage spike or something similar could have affected this unit?  I don't think it's a matter of programming.  If it were, I'd have it fixed by now.  I have been over and over all the possible combinations of programming, and nothing works.

Looking at another topic in this forum, I tested to see if I have 8v on pin 2 of the TTL.  I don't.  Does that mean that the unit needs repair?

Are you trying to use the DDNS to connect?  That often won't connect over a LAN.
Try changing to the IP address of the unit and see if that connects.

Thank you.  Yes, I'm using the LAN address, not DNS.
