My LXR stopped working a few weeks ago after a storm, lightning took out one of our modems and I guess maybe also my LXR...? Either way, it seems like a power surge occurred. I've been scratching my head as to what happened. All the test points seem fine. Finally I decided to check the mainboard. The voltage regulator and main chip get really really hot when it's turned on. I removed the mainboard just to see what would happen, and the LXR as far as I can tell goes back to normal, working as it should obviously without the capabilities that the mainboard provides.
Before I go and order a replacement mainboard though, does anyone know what else the problem may be? Is it possible that there is a short somewhere that's causing the mainboard to get hot like that, and stop the unit from functioning altogether when it's attached..?
