I have come across some WT3125SE and WT3360SE terminals but I don’t have power supplies for them.
I have hooked up 12V DC to the 3125’s and the ethernet light flashes but I don’t get anything on a monitor. The keyboard lights flash momentarily when I power up the device.
Is there something I need to do on the network side to get anything out of these or might there be something wrong with this unit?
Any help would be appreciated – I basically want to know what I can to to see if they are working.

The video out could be toast, if you can get the IP address it grabs from the DHCP server (does it get one?) try using VNC viewer to the unit -if you can VNC (assuming its still installed on the unit as it would from the factory) you will know the video is the issue,

I don’t seem to be getting an IP address from my DHCP server.
I also set up a packet sniffer on an isolated network segment and the unit doesn’t seem to be sending anything out either.
What normally happens if you turn them on? Should you see something on the monitor? ..or do they wait until they have an IP address and a server to activate them before you seen anything?
I got them in a bundle of stuff at an auction – beats me what to do with them.
I’m not getting a power LED on front of the unit either and the power button doesn’t appear to do anything.

Yep, you should hear a POST beep, see a Wyse BIOS screen flash and then boot CE from the flash. the DEL key to enter the BIOS.
I would say they are toast, not really worth fixing them up…October 13, 2009 at 11:46 am #16728
I am assuming of course you have the correct power supply hooked up (V. AMP and pin out)October 13, 2009 at 11:47 am #16729
I have three of these WT3125SE units and they all act the same. Surely one of them would at least give a display and this POST beep you speak of.
I know they came from Dept of Defense – is it possible they may have wiped the flash for security reasons? Is there a way I can re-flash them with the factory BIOS/operating system?
Can you run a crossover serial cable at, say, 9600/8/N/1 for administration at a basic level?

I am running a 12V 2 amp supply to the DC connector (centre pin +ve). Perhaps I should try a different power supply. This one is from an external SATA hdd unit.October 13, 2009 at 11:56 am #16731
I just tried running the unit off a fully charged 32Ah deep cycle 12V battery and exactly the same result. Perhaps they are all unserviceable. Just wish I had one unit that I knew worked so I could compare it with the others.October 14, 2009 at 6:17 am #16733
See netXfer to re-flash:
The power is correct – the PSU with the unit is 12v 2A center pin +
