I do the routine all over and it is fine again...
Not sure whats going on, has anyone encounter similar situation, I searched all forums, but nothing.
I've heard of this one before, it sounds like the +12v direct power either in the plug or on the socket (main board), is either not connecting properly or you have dry joint/cracked solder.

Check the plug for the pins and make sure they are all good, and then check the solder on the blue plug (you will need to open the mk4 to do this).
