Replacing an AC Power Supply on VXA1000 Series Media Flow Engines

The VXA1000 Series Media Flow Engines are supplied with an AC power supply as standard equipment.

Note: After powering off a power supply, wait at least 60 seconds before turning it back on.

To remove an AC power supply:

  1. Press and quickly release the momentary rocker power switch on the rear panel of the chassis to power off the appliance in an orderly manner.

    Caution: If you press the power switch for more than four seconds, the appliance powers off abruptly. Use this method only if you are unable to power off the appliance normally. An abrupt power-off may cause data loss and corruption of the files or file system that might not be correctable.

  2. Unplug the power cord from the power source receptacle.
  3. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to an ESD point on the chassis.
  4. Unplug the power cord from the inlet in the power supply.
  5. The AC power supply has a pull handle and a locking tab. Press the locking tab to the right while you pull out the module using the handle. See Figure 1.

  2. Insert the new power supply module into the appliance. Hold the power supply locking tab to the right until the power supply is fully seated.
  3. Move the power supply locking tab to the left to ensure the power supply module is locked in the appliance.
  4. Insert the power cord into the inlet on the power supply.
  5. Insert the power cord into the AC power source outlet.
  6. Press and release the momentary rocker power switch on the rear panel of the chassis to power on the appliance.
  7. Observe the status LED on the power supply.

    • The LED is green when the power supply is receiving power and is powering the appliance.
    • The LED is amber when the power supply is receiving power but is not powering the appliance.
