I have a Batch 2 R4 that stopped hashing on one board, Miner status page still shows circles and not x, but very high HW on the board not hashing. Any ideas?

Same here. Below Bitmain advice on the issue:
Quote
Please update the firmware: https://shop.bitmain.com/support.htm?pid=007201612090211421457I07aFFE0609
For details on how to upgrade the firmware please see the User manual: https://shop.bitmain.com/support.htm?pid=007201608300453591291gt4d83P0660

If that does not solve the issue then please first test the controller. You can switch the controller cables between hash boards. If the issue follows the cable then the controller is faulty and you can ship the controller to us for repair.

If that does not solve the issue then please test the hash boards one by one.

To test each hash board separately: keep the PSU connectors and controller cable on one of the hash boards connected and disconnect the cables from the other two hash boards. With the miner running you can see the status of the connected hash board.

Here is more detail: http://support.bitmain.com/hc/en-us/articles/226142788-Testing-hash-board-one-by-one

On the miner status screen defective chips are displayed as "xxx", "---" or " ASIC≠45(s7) or 63(s9)"

Once you know which part is defective please create a Repair ticket and ship the part back to us according to these instructions: https://cnshop.bitmain.com/workOrderGuide.htm

Mine also do not light up tiny red LED at the end of faulty board (opposite connectors).


Sorry I am too lazy to check my R4B2. Mine just stopped hashing this morning where GH/s(RT) read 0 but everything else looked correct. Every share was rejected. Tried switching pools via MRR, no improvements. Tried flashing 1202 fw, it errored out and i freaked out too. but it rebooted itself and now everything's back up right.

I don't know what to say about these rigs. I hope they are of decent quality.
Lucky you - mine shows same (GH/s(RT) read 0) but several flashing went ok with no change.

My R4 B2 has been up hashing for 1d6h1m46s
So far, the only number I see that looks out of place is the HW number on the second board.

GH/S(RT)    HW    Temp(Chip1)    Temp(Chip2)
4,021.15    12     82                     72
4,032.14    785   68                     72

What does HW stand for? I checked the owners manual, and found no reference to it.
Thanks

Errors  and while it seems bad it is pretty good number for 30 hours.
Check and see if it does a 800 hw a day pace.

12 is super good number but 800 a day is still good

Thanks philipma1957 & VRobb.
Any idea why this Kano.is pool seems to be shrinking at what looks to be an alarming rate?
as of 3:20 AM 12/15/2016
Users:  869
Workers: 7008
This data makes it look like the pool is in a downward spiral...
https://www.kano.is/index.php?k=blocks
or is it just me being a mining noob & reading the above data the wrong way?

Kano's luck the last month has sucked, hard, so people are ditching ship.
Like rats off a floating one etc. lol
Hopefully it turns
The overall average is always high on the long run.

Agree. Unless electricity is free ROI difficult
Disagree - Home miner is NOT an investment to be measured for ROI.
You buy it (cheap) from maker., you run it at home or office where you pay less for elec. than you make BTC.
And (most important) you sell it high before it's totally obsolete.
Do it right and get right profit - timing is an essence from start (having in mind 45min purchase window Wink

I joined the kano.is pool based on the pool history of getting 2-4 and sometimes 5 or 6 blocks per day.
More than a few people here also spoke highly if kano.is (CK Pool).
There hasn't been a Block found since 2016‑12‑12 13:30:39
As a first time miner (almost 3 days now) This is getting frustrating to say the least.
Is there a better pool that anyone can recommend that is one of the smaller pools?
I don't want to join a huge pool that will contribute to the monopoly of hashing by one pool.
Thanks all.

It's totally understandable given your relatively new status. It's more fun watching steady payouts occur even any particular one of them does not make a meaningful difference.

If you are looking for other alternatives, you may start with blockchain.info and see their pools status. Pick one from the list that ranks, say, between #5~#10, should ensure you can expect a less volatile payout stream, while not contributing to the top dominators.

I personally like ViaBTC. especially if you are seeking for steadier income. Weigh between PPS and PPLNS and see which one works better for your personally. and they also have transaction accelerator function, which is absolutely great! I have used that tool a few times to consolidate several mini wallet balances with only paying 0.0001 btc for each.

Checking out ViaBTC & Slush. Thanks.
Another noob question...
So, how does this work... I've been mining for 2d6h11m40s and the pool I joined (kano.is) has yet to find & process a block...
If I abandon this pool and join another one, will I receive any % of Bitcoin reward for the over 2 days of work?
I don't even know the reward/payout schedule for kano.is I'll have to go look that up.
I've read that your first reward/payout doesn't happen until after 5 days of constant mining.
I thought there were pools that had reward/payout schedules in as few as 5 hour increments?

If you were to leave kano now and block(s) are found after you leave but within the 5nd period, yes you would still receive payments based on how much 5nd is still active at the time the block is found.  It's a way to reduce variance overall, but doesn't help much when you run into a 500%+ block tho!!

I don't believe in superstition because it's bad luck

When you say '5nd period' do you mean a 5 day period?

Not exactly though it could be.  It's actually 5 times the current diffuculty, or 500% block if that helps, and based on the pool's average hash rate at the time the block is solved, currently it's 3.x 2.x days.

no

current diff is 310,000,000,000

 so that is 1nd

  5nd is   1,550,000,000,000

so if at kano pool  we are on a huge bad block

2,156,374,303,376 (695.26%)

that is about 7nd

86h 41m

kano is doing 100% or 1 nd every 14 hours or so.

the odds of a shit block like this are 2 in 1000

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Thanks for helping my noob mining arse.
So, I should prob tough it out and stay in kano.is pool until this block is over - then jump ship?
Slush daily stats are lookin' great right now.

maybe you should research the slush debacle from earlier in the year before you jump to conclusions.....and get back on topic. This is the r4 thread, not a mining pool discussion  Tongue

Ooops, sorry. Guess I did stray off topic.
The slush debacle is news to me - thanks, I'll go do some homework on it.
Hopefully my new R4 will keep hashing along like a champ.
Who knows, it might even find a block someday. I can dream! lol
Even though I got lucky with a cooler running unit, it does still throw off a fair amount of heat.
Next on the list is for next week is to re-home the R4 so I'll have free electricity & no surplus heat in my home.

Hey gang, just learned that you can still play with the frequency control if you want by going direct to the advanced tab like this:

http://192.168.x.x/cgi-bin/minerAdvanced.cgi

Haven't tried it yet myself since my R4 has been running fine, but there you are.  Thanks to ComputerGenie for posting this in the kani.is pool thread.

So it does take you to that tab, but before you change anything it says that it will take 3 hours on search frequency before mining.  I also don't want to void the 90 day warranty so didn't try it.

One of my R4's that stopped hashing on one board has stopped hashing completely after trying to restore the original firmware. The hardware version listed under system overview says "   Socket connect failed: Connection refused".

I have tried powering off several times, reboots, updating firmware, etc. No more hashing. There has to be an easy fix to this without sending to Hong Kong or letting sit in Denver for weeks on end. Any thoughts?

EDIT:  unplugged the original board that did not hash and fired back up, the one remaining board is hashing again at 4th/s!

Exactly same fault here - I think we discovered common issue.
