Physically unable to attach to the console, or when you do console there's no output?

If there's just no output, can you verify that the console is actually working by connecting to different device?

Ok, but have you verified that the serial connection works with another device?  Do you have a switch you can console to just to test?

It could just be a PSU issue.  If it's a 2100 series WLC you can get a new PSU off Ebay for next to nothing to try it.

If the WLC really is 'dead' there's not much you can do apart from RMA it if you have a service contract on it.  I'd doubt you'd get a replacement for it though if it's a 2100 or 4400 series WLC.

Fair point could be PSU but likely faulty.
