Cerbo GX stopped seeing smart shunt

My boat has been sitting idle for a couple of months. At some point over the last few weeks, the Cerbo GX suddenly was not longer able to see the smart shunt connected via a VE Direct cable (it has worked flawlessly for 1.5 years). I checked everything including reconnecting the VE cable on each end, updated all firmware on cerbo and smart shunt and testing out the shunt via bluetooth. I was not able to reset the shunt (by removing the red power cable) yet and not sure if that will help. Is there any other suggestion?

Next troubleshooting step would be to try with another VE.Direct cable (if you have it).

Also try a different VE.Direct port on Cerbo GX.

Its the super long cable that requires some hours of boat yoga to run. Running a new cable is a last resort (possibly behind installing a new shunt). I did move the Cerbo side from ve.direct port 3 to port 1. Can the cable be tested with a multimeter?
