R6400 most of the time wont boot - Dimmed Power LED

Router (r6400 v1) wont complete boot process. will power lights and after a second, Power led, 2.4ghz, 5ghz, USB1 will stay solid but dimmed.

 

If sometimes I disconect for serveral hours, finally it will boot OK.

 

Tried TFTP and Serial USB UART with no results as it seems dimmed amber light on Power LED wont let you TFTP  or Ctrl+C in order to access CFE prompt UART.

 

I also tried  a different power supply.

 

I was able when it was alive to send the First Release firmware I downloade from Netgear. But when I restarted, pum.

If I reboot from the WEB UI or from Telnet, it will boot OK. But If I turn swtch off and the on, I wiill break boot process as seen on video.

Model: R6400|AC1750 Smart WiFi Router

Re: R6400 most of the time wont boot - Dimmed Power LED

If I left the router disconected from the outlet for let say a day, It will boot normally again *_*, maybe a couple of reboots also works ok.
But once a reboot doesnt work, It will keep failing the boot process as shown on the video. 

There are no smd component burnt at naked eye. I think there is a bad SMD? 

Any help please!
