Hi and welcome Ira.

Sorry you are having problems, I am not much use with the electronics side of things, but OK with anything that needs hitting.

I hope you get it sorted soon. In the meantime, have a mooch round and make yourself at home. Enjoy your stay.

Hi Ira and welcome to EMS 🙂

 

I used to have the 12" goto flextube and 9 out of 10 times this sort of message is caused either by faulty power connections, faulty power cable, or faulty/drained power supply. So I would start to diagnose from a totally recharged battery pack, a fully checked power cable (use an electrical tester or multi meter), and secure connections (i.e. plugged in properly). Let us know once you've checked those and we can try and take it forward from there. 🙂
