Great news! I think mamy of us were guessing there was a dc power problem
and you found it. An old mentor of mine in my professional life made a
fatefull observation about troubleshooting. Don't get sidetracked with

Glad you have got it solved. And now you have a little experience that you
can file away for future reference.
