Nucleus reboots randomly

ongoing issue-
nucleus will randomly reboot while using roon.

I’ve moved your topic to the Nucleus Support category of the forum, where it will be seen, and responded to, by a member of the Support team.

Cool thank you.
Has been happening for months now
I had been lead to believe it had been corrected in a recent software release but has happened to me twice in Last 2 days

You might also like to say where you got the Nucleus from, as if it was a dealer, your primary source of resolution if its a hardware issue is first through them.

Purchased from Roon I believe

Then I guess you are in the right place already

  • How often does this happen? Does this only happen when Roon is in use or does it happen when idle as well?
  • During this time when it is restarting are you able to access the Nucleus Web Administration Interface?
  • Are you using the standard power supply that came with the Nucleus or something else?
  • Is the Nucleus in a well-ventilated place?

Hard to say how often it happens.
I started noticing it when I would leave Roon running all night.When I woke up there was no music playing and it was stopped in middle of a track.
Every now and then (mostly in the evening) the music would start to stutter and then stop and the controllers went blank.
I posted a thread about this and a user advised me to log on to the web app for the nucleus and see how long the OS had been running for. I did that and that clued me into the nucleus has rebooted.
Happens a couple times a month I guess.
No idea if it dies it when music not playing.
As mentioned someone from Roon contacted me that the issue had been fixes in recent upgrade. Perhaps I misunderstood.

I have never tried to access the web app when this happens but will the next time it does

Using standard power cable

Here is my communication from Roon that this was fixed in a recent build

This has been an issue with my Nucleus for the past few months. I have created threads that have now been closed. This just happened. Music stops, Controllers lost connection, when i check the web browser it shows the Roon server software has just rebooted. Once up the song i was listening to is displayed paused where it stopped.
This seems to be happening less frequently
Thank you

Hi, I’ve reopened and merged the topics. Tagging @support.

Thank you
Anyone think i need a new nucleus?

Hey @thomas_clark1,

Thanks a lot for getting in touch when the issue returned — we’re very sorry to hear that your music listening experience is interrupted by reboots.

RoonOS on Nucleus (and ROCK) has been impacted by a bug that our team is currently fixing. To see if that bug is affecting you, could you please follow the steps below and let me know if it helps (it’s a workaround that resolves the issue):

Stop Roon/RoonServer.
Use these instructions to locate your Roon Database
In the Roon or Roon Server folder go to Databse>Orbit>delete the orbit_v3.db folder only.
Restart the machine and use as normal

Thanks a lot :pray:

Thank you
I will give it a shot

Ok i have done as you have instructed
Thank you

Thank you very much, @thomas_clark1. Have you seen an improvement?

I cant say for sure
It only happens to me once or twice a month so after just a day or 2 i cant tell
