I took a video of the boot sequence and it seems to jump into the ROM monitor right after printing that it's tested the ethernet. Looking for bootup test sequence messages, I *think* the next thing it tries to test is the RTC. Any idea if the RTC could fail like this?

(Out of curiosity, I popped open the sound box to see if any of the capacitors inside were leaking, they all looked OK. However there were two internal connectors, a vertically oriented RCA jack and some 9-pin ribbon connector; any idea what these are for?)

The internal connectors in the soundbox are for video signals. The interface board is identical in both the soundbox and megapixel monitor.

Try enabling the sound test. Does that get printed/do you hear the beep?

The sound test was enabled but I did not hear a beep out of the box.
