I have two Cisco 1538M micro hubs that have bad fans. Both worked fine. I opened one up got the fan info and ordered a couple. Fans came in. I replaced the fan, put it all back together and it would not power up. No lights,nothing. HMMM!
so I looked at the second one , verified it worked. took out the screws and lifted the top cover off. I didnot disconnect or remove the fan or anything else for that matter. I put the cover back on , tightened the screws and lo and behold now this one doesn't power up. What gives. I can't see any safety switches or anything looking remotely like a switch or something that would cause this. Any advice?????
Dave :thumbsup:

Mod Edit: This will be moved to a more appropriate Forum. Where it can receive the attention it deserves.

They may have a mechanism in place to not allow it to be powered on when the cover is off and for some reason since you opened the case it thinks its off still. Look around for some contacts that may not be meeting properly.
