Swich ICX7150-C12P is stopped working after a power outage.

New Contributor

There was a temporary power outage in our area on 6/20/23. Ruckus switch ICX7150-C12P stopped working after the power outage. A similar issue happened a year ago when a technician from Ruckus replaced a file and said the issue would never occur again. There have been no issues after that until this latest one when following a power outage the switch simply is not working. Power light is on and that is it. Nothing happens when trying to reset it. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.





Thank you for contacting RUCKUS Lennar Home Community.

Thank you for the information you shared.

As per the case description, I could understand that your RUCKUS setup is not working after a power outage.

Could you please let us know the answers to the below queries to assist you better?

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. (Please refer to the below picture and share a picture of the same, showing the light status and the cable connections to the Switch ports)

2. Is your Internet Connection from the Internet Service Provider (ISP) stable and working? (You could check this by connecting to your local router Wi-Fi or from an ethernet cable from Router to a laptop/PC).

3. May I know how many Access Points are connected to the Switch? Could you please let me know the light status on the Access Points? Any of these lights are on (Please refer to the below picture and share a picture of the same)

Thank you for the response.  Here are answers to you questions:

1.  I see only two lights.  Power light is green but syst light is yellow.  Please see the attached photo.

2. Internet connection is stable and working.  I am using the Verizon router as wifi connection for all my devices.

3. We have three access points - one on each floor.  There are no lights on any of the access points.  You can see in the picture that there are no lights on the switch where the cable from access points goes in.

Thank you for the detailed information you shared,

As you mentioned and we could see from the picture you shared, there is an amber/orange light on the "SYST" and a green light on the "PWR" on the Switch. Meaning the Switch is stuck in the boot mode.

Basically, due to the power outage/ power spike, the switch went to a state that we call ‘boot mode’ that is not able to boot up properly. 

Please follow the below steps to fix this issue:

First, we will try to reset the Switch as described below:

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

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

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

Below is the Guide and Videos link for your reference:

IF STILL RESET DOESN’T WORK: Please follow the below steps.

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

Below is the Guide and Video Link to perform the Software recovery process:

Please let me know if you have any queries in this regard. or let me know if you are getting the same error or are stuck at any point in the software recovery process.

Thank you again for your patience.

Sounds pretty technical.  Looks like to be a customer of Ruckus one needs to have a diploma in hardware and network engineering!  What tools and software do I need assuming that I can reset the system to the factory settings after 10-15 attempts?
