Got a reply from Bitmain today.



"Thank you for contacting us. If you have not already done so please try restarting the miner 2 - 3 times. That sometimes solves the issue.

If it is not solved:

Please try these three methods to reset your machine: https://support.bitmain.com/hc/en-us...s/115003595387


Please let us know if you have additional questions or concerns."



I had restarted and turned it on and off many times already which did not change anything so did a reset from web interface not expecting much but to a great surprise to me it now seems to be working as it should. Now running in normal mode, 54TH/s 2150W

That's great

Sounds like they might have a firmware bug. Hopefully it won't happen too often.

I didn't know they'd switched to variable PSUs; that is interesting. I can certainly see how that could help improve efficiency.

Turbo mode 57TH/s @2450W now. A bit short of maximum 62 but there is no exact number for Turbo mode, Bitmain just say 53-62TH/s.

Low power mode consumption has gone down as well 44TH/s @1620W

Even if I haven't any crypto currencies, I am happy for all of you who do.
Bitcoin has again made an unbelievable large jump higher, the past week

My S17 53TH/s Pro has been on ebay for a couple of weeks now @2995 with best offer option. Got a bit tired of low ball offers so set auto decline @2.5k. Overall I have had offers 1000-2450 through ebay best offer facility and the one of the lowest bidders after he ran out of 3 possibilities to offer and several exchanges of communication through ebay messaging has come up to 2.6k cash on collection tomorrow 19/05/2019 which I do find quite tempting. I said I will have to think overnight. Also got it listed on offer when it was 1 ebay max final fee so good saving there as well compared to regular 10%.

What sort of profit would that be, around 300-400ish? I think I'd probably be tempted too. Although, given that the S17s appear to be sold out right now I'd probably hold out for a slightly higher offer. It's quite likely that BTC is on the verge of another bull-run too, which would drive up profitability and demand.

Well it cost me 2010, he's paying cash on collection and only 1 ebay fees so it would be close to 600


Could by another lowly D2 for that.

At 600 it's probably worth it, depending on how profitable it is right now and how soon you can replace it. That BTC bull-run seems to be materialising today though. I see we've just pushed through $8K quite strongly again. Bit of a gamble really but if BTC's price remains bullish I suspect you'll get better offers.

S17 Pro has gone to a new home.

Almost 600 profit, used it for just under 3 weeks in which it probably earned about 250 while costing about 100 in electricity so not a bad return of investment.

Now the question is do I wait for them to come on sale again from Bitmain or should I just buy 1 that's already available a bit more expensive but still cheaper than I sold mine for. Then wait for next promotion on ebay with capped low final value fees and put it on ebay again.
