I decided to play with the e3500 today, so I moved it from the garage to 
the basement.  Since I was alone, i removed all of the boards, power 
supplies, and drives from it, carried the chassis downstairs and 
reassembled.  Also plugged in the A5000, powered it up and gave it a few 
minutes to get started before booting the e3500.  Powered up the 3500, 
did a probe-fcal-all and when the output was taking a few minutes, 
looked at the machine.  It had powered itself off.  Reseated boards and 
power supplies, and it still will not power up.  When I turn on the 
switch on the Power supply, I hear some relays click inside, but it does 
not power up when i turn the key.  Console output from just before this 
issue pasted below.  Any Ideas?
