4 Green Lights 1st One Dims and Antminer S9 Reboots with No Network Connectivity. Seems I'm in some kind of loop. This repeats over and over until I unplug the unit. When I plug it back in it starts then rear light thats in a series of 4 LED's on controller board goes dim blinks irradically then S9 slows down and starts back up every 2 minutes or so. It repeats trying to come back up then green light dims and it cycles all over again. I've tried to factory resetting holding the button in for 4 seconds with no success.  How do I stop this loop of hell?

Please help. Newbie miner. This is my only Antminer S9 and its only a month old. Highest temp its ever reached is 82c in climate controlled enviro.

Give us more details:

1)  Power supply being used
2)  Voltage being supplied to the power supply
3)  Fan status

Without network connectivity there's no way to get the kernel log.

Here are a couple actions you can take.

First, what you are describing is a typical start up process. The firmware does many self tests during the initial startup. It is testing many systems and adjusting for optimum performance. It typically takes about 20 minutes to start a new miner.

However, you should be able to connect to the network. I suggest you login to your router and write down every IP address that is reported as active with the miner off. Then turn on and connect the miner to your router, wait 2 minutes, then check your router for the new active IP address. Type the IP address in your browser's address line to open the miners GUI interface. Enter root and root for username and password.

Once you're in there you should be able to follow the instructions provided to get it setup.

If you're still stuck;

Do you have a multimeter? If not, get one. If you do, please measure the DC voltage between any yellow and black wire from the back of a hash board power connector. See if the voltage is >12.0VDC throughout the attempted startup cycles.

Try to start miner with only one hash board and the controller powered. If that fails, power off, disconnect that hash board and connect a different hash board. Attempt to start miner with only that hash board and the controller connected. If that fails, try only the third hash board.

disconnect the three boards from the controller  send power just to the controller.

so 2 wires 

an eth cable to the controller

a 6 pin jack to the controller

do advanced ip scanner  to see where the controller is

get back to us if you find the controller

Also, 4 seconds isnt long enough for the factory reset in most cases. Hold it down for much longer next time.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.
