> With nothing plugged into the DB9 when you apply power the LED should go on and stay on.
Even removing the DB9 and resetting power, nope, the LED never turns on.
> In your previous testing has the green LED ever gone out or blinked?
It was over a week ago so my memory is fuzzy, but I *think* I saw the LED working back before I fried the power supply. I don't have my camera USB cable with me, I'll upload a pic tonight. Or do you have a picture of the jumpers where they should be so that I can double check?

On another note:
It gets stranger . . . so measuring the voltages, I power it up, and it goes to ~1.5V then quickly drops to much lower. It's as if it's being shorted. I wiggle around wires, flip power on/off many times, it's consistent and the problem doesn't go away.
So I turn it off for ~5 minutes changing nothing, then turn it back on again, and all the voltages are fine again. The voltage regulator has 9V for in, 0V ground, and 4.99V out.
Is my SSC-32 (or some component on it) possibly fried?
