Error booting ASA 5506-X

Hi,

I have some problems booting my Cisco ASA 5506-X. The last time a could connect to the firewall I just tried to show the current configuration but it got blocked. 

After that, I don't get any message on the console and I don't get any prompt to interact with. 

I'm using the usb console port and the device is being mapped to my computer ( I tried with both linux and mac) but when I try to connect to the device with screen /dev/XXX 9600 I get an empty terminal and I get no kind of input even after pressing the enter key.

The device seems to be rebooted after some time also... I cant either connect to any of the eth ports... 

 

Any idea about what is wrong with my device?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Error booting ASA 5506-X

Are you using the mini-USB port for your console?

The full sized USB port is not console but rather for external storage (like a flash drive).
