I have three Cisco 2960G switches that I pulled from a working environment. All three of them are experiencing the same problem, so I have a hard time believing they have all simply failed.
Here's the problem:
When I plug in the power, all the ports lights flash once and the SYST, RPS, STAT, DUPLX and SPEED lights come on for a second. Then all the lights turn off, except for the SYST light which stays green. Nothing ever appears on the serial console. Holding the Mode button while applying power does nothing.
Do I really have 3 switches that all died at the same time?
