    Good day.

    The fan cooling system in our SBIG STT-8300mm is not working after plugging it back and forth. The CCD is being recognized by CCDOps software. The last time it worked properly was last September 11, 2019.

    Here's the link of a short video clip showing the problem: .

    Feel free to share your thoughts/suggestion on resolving this issue.

    Thank you very much. Clear skies.

    They are very dirty - they might just be gummed up. Maybe pop off the back lid and then try to clean them out with compressed air. See if they will turn by hand.

    And make sure the fan wires are plugged in.

    Good day.

    Before cleaning, we found disconnection of the red wires on both fans (see attached images).

    Well that's a new one. Very odd for both power wires to have failed.

    I recommend you send the camera to @Bill at SBIG Service & Repair.
