    M4-ATX, Can't get past blinking.

    I am trying desperately to avoid RMA for this damn thing. I have come to figure out that the M4 is not making to a ready state. When I attach the wires the M4 LED blinks and does nothing else. Even if I just add ignition it doesn't change. I have tried all dip switch settings etc. I have tested with a volt meter and can confirm that it is receiving 14 volts. I have also come to realize there is only power to the 5v rail and not the 12 or 3. I figure this must have to do with the fact it doesn't even start up apparently. If it actually "Started up" even in normal On/OFF PSu mode what should the LED be doing.?

    IIRC the green LED is solid when the M4 is running.

    What version of the firmware is it? When you apply power to the accessory input, the green LED should flash very very quickly and the computer should start.

    That said, get a refund and buy a DSATX or Opus. The M4's are trouble.

    RMA it. You won't be disappointed with an Opus, they're loaded with an array of fancy options, use quality components, and have the best power factor rating when it comes to dc-dc power supplies. Therefore they are very efficient and reliable.

    The craftsmanship that they put into their products is superior. That will be the first thing you'd notice when the product you order gets into your hands.

    Not to mention, when you order from them, they ship out pretty fast and double box the parts in popcorn foam so that the item gets to you safely.

    Initially setup in a basic configuration, they're ready to go, right out of the box. Just attach the power wires and turn on the pc.

    I'm not affiliated with them, just a happy customer.

    Welp, It just blinks on and off continuously. I don't know what firmware it is, I just got it from MP3 store so it should be pretty new...Screw it it's going back. Should have shelled the extra money for opus...
