After reading this section, I should probably bring up that when I checked the PSU voltages, the 5v+ line was low, at 4.7v or so.  I adjusted it back to 5.05v on the pot as defined in the manual, and there it stayed steady, but it didn't seem to help.  Before I adjusted the pot, it was fluctuating.

As LED 9 is on (sorry for not being clear), then the CPU is active. That’s a good sign. 


Definitely look at the DC Power up/down circuit first.
