Question about HP ProCurve 2626 (J4900B) 24x10/100 Mbps Networking Switch

1 Answer

Fault light we have 2 of these exact same switches and both of them will work fine then all the sudden the fault light will come on and they will basically freeze up. you have to push the clear button then wait about 15-30 min and it will start back up. there is a firmware upgrade that says it fixes the fact that this ver. of firmware and ROM that i have will keep flushing its MAC address and flooding it with traffic. Is that what is causing this and if so why havent the rest of them that we got all at the same time started doing this and why havent the 2650's that we have do it? thank you so much for any help you might be able to offer.

Re: fault light

Hi Tculver, I have ProCurve 2424, 2524 and 4000/8000s so I can?t really address your direct question but I may have some advice. I know lots of people who use ProCurve devices and don?t realize they have a lifetime warranty. You might want to consider just flashing them with the latest firmware and if it continues call HP support. If they can?t fix them over the phone they?ll send out replacements via next day deliver. Its one of the major reasons all of my switches are HPs. Let us know what happens and please don?t forget to rate the posting.

No lights at all. i confirm power to the unit. I cannot find a reset button

I recently had this exact problem and saw a solution by TJones99.
The power supply board has two capacitors that are probably bad and are swelled at the top. These are 10V 1000uf capacitors. 25 cents each! Replace the two capacitors and you'll have your switch back.

Irratic behaviour of the switch network

Well 1 can tell you that if I remember right with cisco networking the maximum number of swiches possible between two hosts in a LAN network is 7.
Try to imagine a line with 2 pc at the end points. You can put maximum 7 swiches between them or expect problems.
I suggest you to try to make a current network map if you don't have one already.
Than do some counting between points just like the way your routing protocol is managing the packets route and see how many swiches you hit.

You can read about a very similar kind of incident with brand new CISCO equipement over here.

Maybe the problem's root is something else, but what you wrote was giving me this idea first to think of.
Hope I gave you an idea.

It sounds like the hub has died.
This is not an uncommon problem.
From the symptoms you have described, I would suggest replacing the hub.
Trying to fix them is like trying to refill a Bic lighter.

D-Link Ethernet Switch Lights Flashing and No Internet

You seem to have a problem with the switch or its power supply. If you have another D-Link device with the same power supply (see the volts and amps on the sticker), we may try switching them.

I one had a problem very similar to yours and changing the power supply solved the problem.

All the bottom lights flash, then the top light above 8, over and over

Hello all

jpmchugh, I know this response might come to you a bit late, but none the less it might help others who have this issue. I had exactly the same problem until recently, and looks like I found the solution (at least for me). So I thought I'd share it here, since I have not seen a real solution on the various forums I've visited through.

The one common thing I've noted when searching on this and other forums re the 8 bottom blinking lights and then the top right blinking light, repeating over and over again was about a power surge / storm etc.

The exact thing happened to me. A couple of months ago there was a really bad storm, we had a black out in our area and there were some spikes in our electrical systems.

When the black out was over my Gigabit switch was doing the same routine re the lights. The problem for me was the actual power supply unit.

This Switch I've had is about 1.5 yrs old, dunno if I can claim it on warranty from dlink. I've checked the dlink au website and it quotes 5 years, but dunno if it covers storm damage.

Anyways, I took the faulty power supply and the switch to my local jaycar store today. The sales guy noted that the output should be 7.5v, however when he did a test, it was actually showing 12v. He said that the switch must have some sort of built in protection, cause usually supplying 12v to a device that needs 7.5v should have fried the device.

We tried out a replacement power supply and bang.... back in business.

The only kicker was that the replacement power supply cost me around (AUD) $39.95, cause it's one of those fancy multi volt ones. If you can find one that is fixed at 7.5v it might be a cheaper option

Please let me know if this has solved your problem.
