Damn!
Now it was my turn to loose the upper board =(
It doesn't light up the red led on the board =(
Tried to change control cables but didn't help.
Is this one doomed forever?

EDIT: Tried the IP report trick too...

Nope.

I have previously repaired my Antminers in the only official place that deals with out-of-warranty repairs.
It is BitmainWarranty / Myrig.com , located in Denver, Colorado, USA.

Note: this is not Bitmain company, but a separate company.

I would ask them about the paid repair service for the R4.

Interesting on the top board thing...  I've been running my R4 vertically since day one with no issues so far (knock on wood, fingers crossed, etc...)

I sent my broken S9 board recently to them. Rather voiding bitmain's "warranty" than having to sent my entire unit. They received my board on Dec 27th. For now nothing has happened Sad They are responsive when I ask them, but the responses have been
First this:
Quote
Average repair time is 3-4 business days, and in some cases with complicated repair, it may take 2-3 weeks.  One of our techs will reach out to you with the update in the near future and also the pricing of the repair.
And then this:
Quote
Your order is in the repair process now. Because of Holidays we will be experiencing some delays. We will get back ton you with an update as soon as we have one from the tech on your order.
Let's see what happens, I'm not too happy so far, I wanted my board repaired quickly obviously.

Bitmain Warranty aka Myrig.com will get your board repaired and at a fair price but not quickly. I imagine they are slammed with customer demand as my most recent repairs took a lot longer than usual.

Not surprising, the S9s are breaking a lot. People are selling them on ebay with broken boards too (for crazy prices). I'll report back when the repair is done.

I can't find any product page.

It's one of the 'billboards' on the front page showing the S9, R4, etc...  When you click on it you get that link.

EDIT- that's weird, it's gone again??  Cue Twilight Zone music and Rod's cigarette smoke...!  Shocked
Frankly would make more sense that they're NOT making these things again.
Nope, it's there, website is sluggish or something.  Guess they are going to make these again.

You get the "Coming Soon" button for now.
It's weird, go to BiteMe's main page, click on "Antminer", and it's the third 'billboard' that pops up above the pics of the miners.  Yes, there's no pic of the R4 there for some reason.

And I hate to say it, but I so love R4B2 that I'd be tempted to grab one of these when they come up for sale.  Gotta love the eff and low noise!

Btw, I recently bought two faulty R4s in Ebay to see if I can fix them and after I noticed I'm not able to fix them with my equipment, I sent them to paid repair service (out-of-warranty repair service).

I have sent one R4 to Bitmain in Hong Kong and I have sent the another one R4  to MyRig in Denver, CO, USA.
In a e-mail discussion Bitmain said to me that "We have not produced or supported the R4 in a long time. If you need repair please try our out of repair agent in the US. They carry parts for older machines and may be able to repair. Please check with them."

I didn't know this prior sending one R4 unit to Bitmain in Hong Kong.

But I should have remembered that there was this whole replacement process with T9s and S9s for guys with a faulty R4 unit..

Let's see how this turns out.  Cheesy

Oh it was a whole replacement process all right. Suffice to say it was as pleasant as a colonoscopy without the professionalism.  Cheesy

You can't find new units anywhere at the moment..

Bitmain has not announced news about new R4 batches.

As you can see from my previous post, they said to me that "we have not produced or supported the R4 in a long time".
