I've looked at two pool stats for the same miner. One shows Disconnected, and the other, Slushpool, shows the red ! mark.

However, the miner is trundling along doing stuff, with the occasionally accepted element. So although it's showing disconnected on the Pool dashboard, it it in fact still doing a tiny bit?

You know, posting your query in the Official Slushpool thread might be a good idea considering that is where all of its users hang out...

Good idea, but it's not only Slushpool showing the Not Connected status. So I thought I'd just go general.

Then the question becomes, what kind of miner and what is it's supposed hash rate? Is it a s9/T9, Avalon, eBit, etc? If a miner has too low of a hash rate most pools will reject it.

Maybe share some screenshots of the miner console? What you described isnt very helpful. you mention two pools then just about a red !

Need a bit more info to help you.

Stop buying industrial miners, running them at home, and then complaining about the noise.

Sounds like it's CPU, GPU or tiny USB mining.
They rarely find even a single share so they tend to show up as doing nothing on any pool except when they find a share.
Most pools are configured to find a share every few seconds on a standard miner, then scale that after you've actually got some shares.
So if you're tiny then it will probably take a long time to do that and may never scale down enough.
(Though most pools don't realise it, it's a risk to the pool to allow it to scale down that much)

If that is the case (CPU, GPU, small USB) then Bitcoin mining is pointless - you need a recent ASIC miner e.g. from Canaan.
