OK. So i've been a happy SBIG STT-8300 owner for the past four years or so. Recently, I plugged in my camera for a night of imaging (active surge protector in-place with observatory/house electricity) and sparks came shooting out of the outlet!! I was HORRIFIED!! No reason for it. No moisture present. So, with great fear, I plugged the camera into another outlet and the camera clicks normally to begin and the fans come on and one green LED is on. Appears to be OK (whew), however, the camera will not connect with the software as it had done so many times previously. Are more yellow LEDs supposed to come on just by plugging in the camera, without computer connection? Can someone please try this and let me know what they see? I have ordered a new fuse and replaced the one inside the camera and that did not help. I am so distraught. Don't know what to do next.
