2. Function

2.1 Start up

2.1.1 Check before Start up

Conduct a preliminary inspection of the mine:

  • Check whether the appearance of the whole machine is deformed, and whether the fans, cables are damaged.
  • Check whether the miner has abnormal noise, and observe whether the cooling fin is falling off.
  • Check whether the cables and fans plug are loose, and if they are loose, insert them in time.

If you find the above-mentioned abnormality, please take a picture and then contact the after-sales service.

Warning:Do not disassemble the machine case by yourself. The whole machine is affixed with an anti-disassembly label. When the user disassembles the machine case by himself, the machine will immediately lose the qualification for warranty.

2.1.2 Precautions

  • The miner is wired connected to the router or switch.

  • Google chrome browser is recommended to background.

Warning:plugging or unplugging the cables with power on is forbidden.

2.1.3Boot

Please connect the miner to the LAN first, and then plug in the power cord to boot. During the boot process, the red and green lights flickered at the same time to start the self-checking. After that, the red light goes out and the green light is always on, then the miner starts successfully.

2.2 Access Miner

2.2.1 Obtain Miner IP

Method 1:Obtain the IP address of the miner through the batch processing tool provided by our company(Yotta BC1.4.9  Please, go to the official website to download. https://github.com/goldshellminer/YottaBC).
Method 2:Find the IP of the miner in the network router interface

3 Common Malfunctions and Treatment

3.1 Common Malfunctions

The red and green status indicators of the mining machine can indicate the abnormal state of the main mining machine

Red LightGreen LightStatus
Flash SlowLights offNetwork abnormal
Flash quicklyLights offFan speed is abnormal
Always onLights offMiner temperature is too high
Always onFlash quicklySome computing boards failed to start
Lights offAlways onThe miner is idle
Lights offFlash quicklyNormal working condition
Flash quicklyFlash quicklyUser-enabled lighting effect

When the miner software detects an abnormal state, the miner background page and indicator will indicate the current abnormal state at the same time.

3.2 Malfunction Elimination

3.2.1 Power Supply

Situation 1

When the miner is powered on, the fan does not rotate and the network port light does not turn on.

Tips:

  • Check whether the power connector is loose or falling off, and whether the power cord is inserted firmly.
  • Check whether the fan rotates, if not, the power supply needs to be replaced.
  • Use the multimeter to check whether the power supply is 11-13V output.

3.2.2 Network

Situation 1

The new miner cannot obtain an IP address

Tips:

  • Check whether the Ethernet interface is plugged in and whether the Ethernet status light is on.
  • Ensure that the IP address of the miner and the PC are in the same network.
  • Make sure that the miner network setting DHCP is turned on. If you do not confirm, press and hold the ‘Reset’ button for 7 seconds to restore the factory settings.

3.2.3 Fan

Situation 1

The fan does not rotate after power on.

Tips:

  • Check whether the fan cable is inserted firmly.
  • Change the fan interface crosswise to check whether it is a fan problem or a control board interface problem.

Situation 2

The fan starts after power on, but the miner software reports that the fan is abnormal.

Tips:

  • Fan speed is insufficient in some gears

3.2.4 High Temperature Protection

Situation 1

The miner is closed due to high temperature protection

Tips:

  • Check whether the ambient temperature is too high. (above 35℃)
  • Check whether the air inlet and outlet of the fan are blocked (for example, the air inlet and outlet are facing the wall, and there are too many attachments such as dust and catkins).
  • Restart at least 10 minutes after the high temperature protection, and observe whether the temperature of the miner is stable after running.

3.2.5 Low Computing Power

Situation 1

The background software prompts “Unable to start the computing board”, the computing power is 0.

Tips:

  • Restart the miner to see if it can be restored.
  • Change the power cord of the board to eliminate the problem caused by the power supply.
  • Cross-exchange data cables with normal hashrate boards to eliminate cable problems.

Situation 2

The local average computing power is normal, but the pool computing power is low.

Tips:

  • Check whether the network has high latency.
  • Replacing the pool comparison test, there are currently some pools that cannot adapt to the appropriate difficulty, resulting in low computing power.
