Issue Details

I have a PXI or PXIe chassis which has all three lights on the front blinking read and will not power on.  What should I do?


Please contact National Instruments Support for troubleshooting information and the possibility of a repair and/or replacement.

Additional Information

All three lights blinking red means there is most likely a power failure inside the chassis and can be difficult to troubleshoot or diagnose.
