Vortex 2280 problem detected.

Subject boots up with error message on LCD: "Problem detected, Error Code: 260".

What does it mean? Is this a hardware, software or config error?

When I trying to connect via RS232 device is not responding.

Re: Vortex 2280 problem detected.

Hello Kearlock,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

Using the Search String of Vortex && Problem finds the following post:

 

Vortex: How Fatal Errors are generated and understood (11676) 

 

Description
 
Fatal errors are generated on the Vortex when a condition occurs that prevents normal operation of the device. Fatal errors are indicated in two ways: on the front panel LCD and via the RS-232 port and EF Bus.

On the front panel, a fatal error is indicated by the following text:

Problem Detected...
Error Code: XXX

Note* The XXX’s indicate the error number.

On the RS-232 port and EF Bus, a fatal error is indicated by the following command being issued by the device:

TIDERROR#XXX

The T will be the device type, ID will be the device ID, and XXX indicates the error number. Other non-fatal error conditions can be indicated via this mechanism as well. For example, if an invalid RS-232 command is sent, an error command of ERROR#002 will be generated, indicating a syntax error. One way to tell a fatal error from a non-fatal error is that fatal errors are all above 256, while non-fatal errors are below 256.

Non-fatal errors are described in the Vortex command set documents.

Fatal errors can be generated in two ways. First, the Vortex runs a self-test whenever it boots. If any errors are detected during the self-test, they are reported. Errors generated through this mechanism will only show up during power-up. They will not occur during normal operation (unless the power is cycled). Some of the other error messages can be generated during normal operation.

 

Judging by the above I believe you will need to call Polycom support.
