How to switch out faulty ICX 7150-C12P unit? my unit is faulty due to weather?

New Contributor

My ICX 7150-C12P unit has to replaced again due to power loss in the home. My R150 units are not receiving power "PoE" from the main switch. This has happened to me once already and is very frustrating. I have power cycled both the routers and the ICX, as well as reset (little reset button, hold 10 seconds while powering on) the ICX multiple times. What are the new steps to getting the unit switched out? Thank in advance? Also what are recommendations to prevent this in the future



Hi @horaceahenry 

Hope you are doing well! 

1-On your switch while it's plugged into the outlet, do you see any lights on? (Amber or green) Please let us know which lights are on? 



2-Make sure it is plugged into a well-known outlet/power source

Hi @horaceahenry 

Basically, due the power outage/ power spike the switch went to a state that we called (boot-mode) that is not able to boot up properly. 

That does not mean is broken or need to be replace 'in some cases'

1-Please try to disconnect from the Power outlet the ICX-7150 and reconnected.

2-Please try to press the reset button using a paper click or a small stick 

  1. Remove power from the switch.
  2. Press and hold the Reset button while applying power to the switch.
  3. After all the system LEDs flash amber, release the Reset button.

If that does not make any difference, we need to perform a software recovery since it can be that the image flash is corrupted so in basic words the unit is not able to boot up properly and need re-install the image to boot up properly.

3-We need to access (physical) using one of the cables to the ICX-7150C12P mentioned on the below guide: 

How to console in the ICX-7150-12cp

Once we are there, we can try to boot up the unit using the following commands: 

Boot_primary or Boot_secondary 

If that step does not work Software recovery needs to be applied

Here is the guide:

yea, i was reading what you guys are doing to other lennar customers now that you guys switched to this community board. I've  tried the reset part already and I don't have the resources/time to to all that computer/downloading flash drive stuff, it is VERY complicated. Who can I take the box to fix that? Do you guys have a tech/location? and how can this be prevented in the future if you guys are basically unwilling to help, because its clearly going to be a common problem.
