Solix white and black screen
« on: May 30, 2020, 08:29:11 PM »
Hello everyone, this is my first time posting an issue here my solix 12 started messing up earlier today and I could never get it to work I connect the power and all it shows is a mostly white screen with some black towards the buttons I have no idea what to do and have been searching the Forum and internet for any similar issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.... I am trying to figure out how to put up some pictures

Some SOLIX issues (very power hungry animals) can be attributed to low power (low/bad battery)  or insufficient amperage (too small of wires)  ...

**Troubleshooting can be ...:

*Load testing the battery to determine battery health  ...
*Verifying wiring (at least 10gauge) direct from battery to SOLIX  ...

And of course Restore Defaults is an easy 1st troubleshooting step  ...

Correct .. the HB power cable is adequate for the “end of the run” (even tho I cut it down to about 2ft)  ...

I use 10guage marine tinned multistrand  ...
