Lightning Strike

Postby twoup6 on Mon May 03, 2010 8:11 pm

I have just had a direct hit by lightning and am trying to sort out what is working and what is not. My SARV3 displays Red and Green lights constant with approx 4.8 volts on each of these connections. The other reading that is not right is the "Parallel" which has a reading of -2.7 volts across column A, B and C. All other readings seems to be OK as per the test described in the tech documents.

Consufed :shock:

Have you tried to remove B+ and reconnect it. Regulators can survive some big transients, but the processor may get lock up.

If restarting it doesn't help, then it time to get a spare and get that one fixed.
