Hello kind people of the internet :3
i have this server for a very long time always did great,when we move houses i put it in storage for 6 months
remove the SSD and some hard drives the rest stayed the same all original
i don't have the original ssd/hdd that was in the server before
when i wanted to use it again some weeks ago i put in a SSD started it up everything seems to work fine
what i get on the LPD is - - or 1.2 as far as my knowledge goes that is fine.
i get nothing out of the video ports front/back with all the monitors and cables i tried came back with no signal
atm i just very lost on how to go further hope anyone can help me out
The server system i got:
Things that i have tried all ended in no result:
what im not sure about is how to reset the UEFI boot recovery jumper (J29) and IMM recovery jumper (J147)/SW3 switch block to clear the CMOS memory that way
i'm just at a point that i don't know anymore
hope you guys can help me figure it out and bring life back into it thx for reading

Let me clarify this issue. So you can power on this machine, but no display?
When you try to power on this machine, is there any indicator on Light path diagnostics panel or POST BEEP?
I found a Problem Determination and Service Guide( https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=ibm1MIGR-5079668 ), maybe we can start from here.
Page 51. Monitor or video problems : Symptom - The screen is blank.
1. If the server is attached to a KVM switch, bypass the KVM switch to eliminate it as a possible cause of the problem: connect the monitor cable directly to the correct connector on the rear of the server.
2. The IMM remote presence function is disabled if you install an optional video adapter. To use the IMM remote presence function, remove the optional video adapter.
3. Make sure that:
4. Make sure that the correct server is controlling the monitor, if applicable.
5. Make sure that damaged server firmware is not affecting the video; see “Recovering the server firmware” on page 107 for information about recovering from server firmware failure.
6. Observe the checkpoint LEDs on the light path diagnostics panel; if the codes are changing, go to the next step.
7. Replace the following components one at a time, in the order shown, restarting the server each time:
b. Video adapter (if one is installed)
c. System board
8. See “Solving undetermined problems” on page 150 for information about solving undetermined problems.

Heya RyanTsai Thx for your reply.
Yes it powers on normally
Like i said the LDP gives 2 codes:-- and 1.2 there are no deeps
i came across the same post i started ther did every step that i could do without success
Before i switch the mainboard i wanna try the IMM port, to make sure display ports are not disabled and check logs.
i'm struggling to set it up do i just connect the ethernet cable from IMM to my main router
and do i use the IMM default ip 192.168.70.125. to connect tro the web interface from any pc that is connected on the router?

I think you are talkin about "checkpoint code". Checkpoint code only indicates the point at which the system stopped during the boot block and POST. A checkpoint code is either a byte or a word value that is produced by UEFI. The display does not provide error codes or suggest components to be replaced.
Have you seen any component LEDs lit up?
Of course you should try the IMM web interface first. If you have never changed it, the server comes with an default IMM IP address: 192.168.70.125. And you can connect to the manager port directly with your laptop.

i was mistaken i mean the LED`s not the checkpoint code, No component LEDs lit up all was fine

Nice to see it's working now.
About the IMM, can you ping the IMM IP?
You can press the F1 key to enter UEFI at boot to check the network settings.
