Default Help ! DEQ2496 not working.

Yesterday, I took apart my DEQ2496 to clean it. Replaced everything exactly as it was, only thing is that the white paste in the Power Supply Mosfets was replaced by grey color thermal paste. Now the DEQ2496 is not starting up, a dim orange light appears in the display panel on power on, nothing else happens.

Any suggestion & advice will be very helpful ! Thanks.

Your thermal paste may be conductive electrically ie silver etc bearing paste used on computers ....in which case you may want to take them apart clean till no trace is seen and switch to white thermal grease and mica, or change up altogether and switch to sil pad etc...
