CT-SSP will not boot! Help!
I had a friend visit today. He's here from out of the country, and really wanted to see my theater. But, the Classé CT-SSP won't boot!
I have the Classé and other audio gear connected to a UPS that has switched outlets (each piece is on its own outlet), and I turn them off when the theater isn't in use to save power. (The Classé uses 35W in standby...)
Normally what happens is that when power is applied, the blue power button on the Classé blinks blue for a minute or two, then goes solid red to indicate that it has booted and is now in standby.
What's happening today is that the button never stops blinking blue. After about 10 minutes, I cycled the outlet power, but it continued blinking blue. After another 10 minutes, I turned the hard switch on the back of the processor off, counted to 15 and turned it on again. More blinking blue.
Has anybody ever seen this symptom? Is there a way to un-stick it? I have the vague recollection that a constant blue blink is what the processor did when it was having its firmware updated, but I may be wrong about that.
Power quality is good (122-124V according to the UPS), and the UPS will boost/buck or switch to battery if it goes too far out of spec anyway.
