I have the following Pix 515E Firewall, that has been working good for a few years.
But suddenly, the Pix stop booting up. The only thing that is happening is the power and network traffic led flashes and
the active led is off.
So my question is that is this symptom a hardware or software problem and is it fixable with either new parts;
or is my firewall dead. I suspect that it is a hardware problem since the active led doesn't light up.
I cann't even enter the ROM Moniter mode.
Thanks in advance for any feedback!
Seems to be a hardware failure, if you are not at all able to enter the rommon mode. I would suggest open a TAC case for it to get it investigated and if required get it RMAed.
Well as per the description this does seem like a hardware failure, just as a last resort I would suggest keep the device powered off for 10 minutes and then power it on, if it still exhibits same behavior go for the RMA.
