Due to the huge amount of redundant topics in the mining support board , also the “words” used in describing the issues can be very hard to search for, many members have topics with titles such as “help needed” and then they post an image showing their problem, these topics are almost impossible to be found, therefore I  wanted to make a sort of collection for most common issues in one thread.
I could also use some help, if you think that there are more topics that need to be added, please post away so that i can add them, also if you have any suggestions for better tittles to these topics feel free to suggest.

Before you post anything asking for help, please ensure that you have done the following:

1-   Reboot the miner ( many issues can be solved by simply rebooting the miner)
2-   Flush a different firmware
3-   Reset the miner, you have to try these 3 methods > https://support.bitmain.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003595387-How-to-reset-miner-to-factory-settings-
4-   Reboot your router/switch.
5-   Try a different PSU

Many issues can be solved by the 5 methods mentioned above.

also check these links before posting new questions (suggested by BitMaxz )

You might want to mention this is basically an antminer guide because almost every topic you linked is antminer specific.

There is a guide from Bitmain where you can see a list of problems and solution that I think adding this in your list will give users to find other solution about their miner's problem.

Add this list.

- Possible problems and solutions for S7, S9 (fixed frequency) & L3+
- S9 series Antminers low hash rate
- Test hash board one by one

well there is this > Avalon 741  Grin , but you are right

well , Bitmain sadly dominate the mining industry, also more than 90% of topics in the mining support are antminer related, i can't come up with my own issues related to non-antminer miners, if you have an topics that you suggest adding post away, i'll add them, as i mentioned i could use some help, this is not a 1 man job.

There is a guide from Bitmain...

thanks , added
