DELL 180AS KVM Switch Trouble Shooting - No Status LED

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have a DELL 180AS KVM switch that I cannot get any response out of.  I have tried searching for solutions on DELL's websites, forums and manuals

Does anyone know of a way to manually reset this kvm?  I mean actually opening the cover and pulling a jumper or something similar.

I have checked the power and it is gettign 120VAC tothe transfomer and the transformer is putting 5VDC into the board (which is what is stated on the transformer).

Any ideas?
Watch Question

isn't there a reset button right next to the power switch, one that will require you to use a paper clip


Nope.  Just a small port with a green LED.

Just I'm grading myself, why not select excellent!


Just an update - the replacement caps worked!  I was able to replace the bad ones in the power supply and presto.

Now if I can just update the firmware.
