How to Reboot Your Fronius IG Solar Inverter
Rebooting your Fronius IG solar inverter is quite simple, however, it is important you follow the shutdown procedure correctly to avoid damaging your system. There should be instructions somewhere near your inverter on how to reboot the system which should be something like the following:
Turn OFF the solar supply main switch (or inverter AC isolator if present).
Turn OFF the PV array DC isolator.
Wait for the inverter screen to go completely blank.
Once completely blank, wait a few seconds and then turn ON the PV array DC isolator.
Turn ON the solar supply main switch (or inverter AC isolator if present).
It may take a couple of minutes to restart, so just wait patiently while the inverter reboots. If the STATE 406 message is displayed again you are going to need the help of a solar accredited electrician.
