This sort of applies to anything... give at least 24 hours to allow
any device to warm up to room temperature before doing anything.

After a move of a device, open it up and check all the connections,
reseat the cards and do a "rattle" test and make sure a screw or other
metal object has not found its way onto the electronics, into the p/s
etc.... otherwise things could get ugly.
