Beeping/whining Sound on XU4

Unread post by rooted » Fri Mar 30, 2018 2:40 pm

My CloudShell 1 started making this high pitched beep or whine sound, when this happened I was experiencing hard drive corruption and USB issues.

Turned out to be the Hardkernel power supply slowly giving out under high CPU load. Replaced it and all is back to normal.

If you experience similar sounds and accompanied issues you likely need a new power supply. It happens sometimes.

Just for curiosity, is this a system you run continuously or power on and off as needed?

It's always on, the hard drive spins down after 10 minutes.

Been running for a good while, over a year. I switched to my XU3 power supply and no more issues.
