I have been running this Cointerra miner about 6 months and it's started giving me fits.  It would just stop responding, so a power cycle got it online, but now that is no longer working.  I read through some of the big thread, but I think I need some specific help.  Here is what I have done so far

Opened the cover and tried booting, board 1 has green lights that come on, go off, then do the knight rider thing, I think that's what they are supposed to do?  Board 0 does much the same thing but the lights are orange, not green.  So I think I can assume my boards are not dead.

I switched the power supplies, get same result.  Checked voltage on both boards and they are getting 12v, so that looks good.

I reseated all cables on both boards, no change

The controller board underneath board 0 has blue lights on it, but I can't ping it at all any longer.  Should I work on getting the controller online?  Is that likely where my problem is and not the boards themselves?  I have looked the boards over very carefully and I do not see any burt chips or smell any burnt smell at all.  They appear to be in great shape.  Is there any kind of program I can run and connect to the boards USB with my laptop and check anything?
