    Opus wont power up, wtf?! Help please!

    Hey everyone,

    I tried to but couldn't find anything so I guess I'll ask.

    I got my carputer installed, everything was working fine. Last night I was cruising around listening to mp3s and now this morning the computer wont power up at all. It did the same thing to me yesterday. Yesterday, i pulled it out, unplugged the harnesses and the fuse, plugged them back in and it worked. Today, nothing. I hooked up a multimeter to the power and ignition lines to ensure they worked and they did. I dont see the green status light flashing on the opus and it doesn't attempt to turn on. The power switch cable appears to be fine.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Hrmmm.... So your saying that the Power and Ign wires that are going into the power supply have power but the Light isn't coming on?

    Out of curiosity what Opus is it? the 150 or the 90? Have you checked the battery? maybe the voltage is to low so the opus is going into OFF mode to save you from having to jump the car.

    yeah that's what i'm saying :S

    its the 90w opus. The battery is putting out 12-14 volts steadily, so I doubt the opis is saving me from having to jump the car am I missing someting?

    possibly bad connection... on the fuse, cables or somewhere...

    well after not happening for a week this happened again this morning. I tried removing the fuse for a bit like i did last time, nothing. Computer still wont boot up. Fuse is fine, connectoins are good. After I remove the fuse for a few mins, put it back in and plug in the wiring harness, i see the green led flash as I plug the harness in, but I dont get that standby flashing. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    So it only flashes once?

    Sounds like a bad connection in the pigtail, sometimes the pins in the connector push out of place and don't make a perfect connection which shakes loose. Make sure the pins are fully pushed into place.
