Outback S3 Will not Turn On


  • After pushing the power button, the status light temporarily turns orange, maybe green, then off.
  • Can hear a relay clicking inside the unit, but the screen does not light up.


This is the self-protection circuitry inside of the S3 preventing damage to itself from an over current draw. This over-current situation can be caused by multiple issues, but the most common is a shorted backlight inverter, or corrosion across components.


Open the unit, and inspect. Either clean corrosion or replace backlight inverter.
