... the power led is flashing fast for about 15 secs then i hear a very weak 3 beeps like lacking power and it shuts down all lights (disk and fan never started)
i was moving the linkstation while connected through serial cable, the cable broke and the damn thing shuted off inmedeatly
what can it be?
The weak/muted beeps certainly sound like low voltage problem or a short...
So you have a serial port header attached... any chance that some tiny fragment of something (either from when the cable broke or something 'extra floating around' from when you soldered your header) is on the circuit board? if it is the LSProV2, then it has the connector for the daughterboard in the front. Is there anything errant (solder flecks?) on either side of the connector?
Are the soldering points good? could there be short there somehow?
Any chance something metallic fell in the PSU section and is causing a short there?
One very good thing about the LS PRO v2 is the ease of taking it apart - easier than the v1.
Do you have access to a spare serial cable?
