-Make sure that the GX device and MultiPlus is running the latest firmware version. ​+NOTES: 
 +  - We recommend to power a GX device from the battery. Not from the AC-out. In case you still power it from AC-out, carefully read this FAQ item. 
 +  - This FAQ item applies to Venus GX, CCGX, and all other GX Devices, but not the Cerbo GX. It has an improved design due to which its no longer recommended to cut pin 7 of the VE.Bus cable when powering the GX device on the AC-out port. 
 +  - Make sure that the GX device and MultiPlus is running the latest firmware version. ​
  
-If you power the CCGX from an AC adaptor connected to the AC-out port of any VE.Bus product (Inverter, Multi or Quattro), then a deadlock can occur after the VE.Bus products are powered-down for any reason (after any operational fault or during a black start). The VE.Bus devices will not boot-up until the CCGX has power ...but the CCGX will not boot-up until //it// has power.

 This deadlock can be rectified by briefly unplugging the CCGX VE.Bus cable at which point you will observe the VE.Bus products will immediately begin to boot-up. This deadlock can be rectified by briefly unplugging the CCGX VE.Bus cable at which point you will observe the VE.Bus products will immediately begin to boot-up.
