Clock-Signal Repair Pictures ISR4300, ASA, ISR4400

Bernhard Roth

Hello!

We have many devices affected by the clock-signal issues.

Cisco does replace the units with repaired/fixed ones.

I have received some ISR4321 routers with the fix applied (pictures attached).

The Cisco provided fix is of - well - mediocre quality (loose solder joints etc..) but works.

I am an EE engineer and am able to fix other routers of my customers as well (attached a picture of one of my fixes).

Spot the difference :)

Is there anyone which has received fixed ASA5506, ASA5508 and ISR4331 routers?

Please post pictures of your fix (hi-res if possible)

I ask because I would like to fix them as well (some of my customers) and avoid configuration, license etc. migration.

I am aware that I might void Ciscos warranty by this act of evil :)

Best regards,

Bernhard

I had a similar issue with a 5508x. Went to a lot of trouble to get a the resistor put in but it wouldn't boot. Was very disappointed. Then I removed the CMOS battery, shorted out the pins.....and presto.....working 5508......

Thanks, what pins did you short?

Same here! My ASA 5506-X also died, all the lights went on... As described above, I opened the chassie, removed the cooling housing from the proc and then my friend solderd a 150 Ohm SMD resistor as mentioned and expained in previous posts and....

WOULA It also worked for me!

I would make a foto of the soldered element but it's so small that it has no point to do so... But I can definitely confirm that this aproach on ASA 5506-x works!

With the help of this topic I was able to repair my ASA5506. Status led was flashing amber before it stopped working and console port was also not giving any output.

Thanks

What adhesive did you use to hold down the resistor?

If you want to make it 100% properly you can use SMT red glue

 

Otherwise some special pcb grade silicone or kapton tape will do the job as well.

My asa5506 was repaired by the original factory with a 150 ohm resistor. It still broke yesterday, amber status flash of death.
If you do not change to a new version of the cpu, the original factory repair can only be used for extended use without solving the problem.

Failure process:
1. Suddenly unable to work last night, CLI displays as attachments
2. Can not start after power off, it should be that the CPU is damaged

Thanks! I did it, working fine! I used resistor no SMD formfactor.

Hi,

 

I've got the same problem on a ISR 4431.

Is there someone already fix it?

 

Thanks
