Hello NI Community!
I have a problem an PXIe-5413 signal generator in a PXIe-1075 chassis. The Access LED turns red within a few seconds of applying power. I looked at it in MAX and when I ran the self test, it returned "An unexpected software error occurred." No code was given. It does this in more than one slot, and the other three 5413s in the chassis operate normally. The documentation that I found said some possible causes are the PLL not locking and the unit overheating. Is there a way to drill down to a root cause?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Curious, do you see the red LED before or after the operating system starts?
Your best course of action is to send the module in to NI and get it repaired.

I'm not sure which OS you're referring to (assuming there's one in the PXI chassis) so I did this test:
The LED goes red much faster (estimate 0-5 seconds) if the chassis has already been powered up. Sounds like a heat issue.
