I'm not sure about the 6i's but I've come across a few faulty 5i's. They are the mezzanine type boards,- is 6i the same ?

If it is you may wish to try removing and reinstalling the board firmly. Replace the 6i board with a known good one.

yes reseated everything..

6i is embedded and no extra cost.
client chooses cheaper
no option here.
