If you’re an owner of a Bitmain Antminer T17+ ASIC, encountering the “chain find 0 asic” error message can be a frustrating experience. This error message indicates a problem with one or more of your hash boards and can negatively affect your mining rig’s performance. However, don’t worry, as there are a few simple steps you can take to troubleshoot and fix this issue. In this troubleshooting guide, we’ll provide you with a step-by-step approach to identify and fix the faulty hash board and other potential issues that may be causing the “chain find 0 asic” error message on your Bitmain Antminer T17+ ASICs. By following these steps, you’ll be able to get your mining rig up and running again in no time.
Troubleshooting Steps to fix “chain find 0 asic” on Bitmain Antminer T17+ ASICs
- Look for the error message “check_asic_number_with_power_on: Chain: find 0 asic” in the kernel logs of your Bitmain Antminer T17+ ASICs. This error message indicates that there is a problem with one or more of your hash boards.
- Swap the data cable of the hash board that’s displaying the “find 0 asic” error message with the data cables of the other two normal hash boards.
- If the “find 0 asic” error message moves to another hash board after the swap, then the hash board with the “find 0 asic” error message is the faulty one.
- Remove the faulty hash board from your mining rig.
- Inspect the board for any visible damage or defects, such as loose connections, burnt chips, or other signs of damage.
- If there is no visible damage on the faulty hash board, clean it with compressed air or a soft brush to remove any dust or debris.
- Reinstall the faulty hash board back into your mining rig.
- Check if your Bitmain Antminer T17+ ASICs are running on the latest firmware version by accessing the Antminer’s web interface and looking at the “Status” page. If the firmware is outdated, update it.
- Check the temperature of your Antminer by accessing the web interface and looking at the “Status” page. If the temperature is too high, it could cause the Antminer to shut down or malfunction.
- Use a Fluke 15B+ multimeter to check if the total voltage domain is normal. Check if the PIC chip, MOS tube, and boost circuit are abnormal.
- Check the RI signal of the hash board to see if it’s normal. If the signal is abnormal, you can try checking a group of RI signals on the edge of the domain from the middle domain for detection. If it is normal, check it forward, and if it’s abnormal, check it backward.
- Check the voltage of the chip’s RI signal and the ground value to see if they are abnormal. If there is any abnormality, most of them are caused by the chip pseudo soldering. First, try soldering twice. If it cannot be solved, replace the faulty BM1397 ASIC chip.
