DAC+ green led flashing but no sound

Hi all,

Just received my hifiberry DAC+ , tried several hours but was not able to get sound (total silence).

Contents of /etc/modules:
snd_soc_bcm2708
bcm2708_dmaengine
snd_soc_hifiberry_dacplus

Removed all blacklisted audio related modules in files in /etc/modprobe.d/

Updated raspbian (apt-get update && apt-get upgrade) and run rpi-update
rebooted

root@raspberrypi:~# aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: sndrpihifiberry [snd_rpi_hifiberry_dacplus], device 0: HiFiBerry DAC+ HiFi pcm512x-hifi-0 []
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
root@raspberrypi:~#

Used alsamixer to set playback volume to 100

Now when playing a wav file:
aplay sin1000_48khz.wav

During playback the green led on the DAC+ is flashing but no sound from the analog stereo RCA outputs (total silence).

Is my DAC+ defective of am I forgetting something?

Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Ronald
