I have a hp mediasmart home server. When the machine boots the health indicator lights blink 5 red and then a flashing blue. I suspect that the system boot drive is damaged (it is clicking). How do I go about fixing this? Michael Gibson

Health lights blinking red


You say the "health lights" blinking red. If this is the power light on the front then it can blink at different rates:-
Flashing red (2 blinks) Thermal event (THERMTRIP#).
Flashing red (3 blinks) No CPU.
Flashing red (4 blinks) Crowbar.
I'm not quite sure what they mean by "Crowbar"
The user manual can be found on this link:-

Hp w2408h monitor flashing red green black blue white


These blinks (flashes) are fault indication. By the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the blinks occur at one time switch ON, carefully. Do it once again, and make sure about the number of blinks. If the flashes are continious, non-stop, the main system control IC should be suspected. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has blinking codes detail to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

On one of our HP DL360 G5 systems every time after soft reboot the server cannot be booted back. This is 100% reproducible also with Cold boot. Can someone help us find what internal component is...


The simplest way is to check Insight Manager. Type localhost:2301 on a web browser locally. Or, servername:2301 for remote access. You need local Administrator password.
Insight is only available if it was set up with a Smart Start disk. It's that pack that comes with all HP servers, but can be downloaded as well. Best practice is always install.


Don' know what IML is, and ILO has no baring to problems.

There is Insight Manager link on specs.

Battery light flashes blue once, orange once. Manual says battery overheated and let it cool. Been cooling for 3 1/2 hrs unplugged from anything and still nothing. No power..and blinking blue to orange...


With battery in, boot to the BIOS, check indications under battery health. I'm pretty sure it will indicate battery decline/failure which will mean, replace the battery.

1721 Inspiron shows flashing amber, three times, then blue.


The cells in the battery are starting to go bad which is why the light is blinking the way it is.

Once you get a new battery put in there the light will stay blue instead of flashing amber.

Internal led of ML350 server is glowing.......how do i resolve it?


Hi Franceso, plz specify
Is it powering ON ?
Which LED is glowing?
These leds are there on the front panel :

1 Power On/Standby button
2 System power LED
Green = Power on
Amber = System shut down, but power still applied
Off = No power

3 Internal health LED (Wave sign in BOX)
Green = Normal
Amber = System degraded. To identify the component in a degraded state, refer to system board LEDs.
Red = System critical. To identify the component in a critical state, refer to system board LEDs.
Off = Normal (when in standby mode)

4 External health LED (power supply)
Green = Normal
Amber = Power redundancy failure
Red = Critical power supply failure
5 NIC 1 activity LED Green = Network link
Flashing = Network link and activity
Off = No link to network.
6 UID LED Blue = Activated
Flashing = System remotely managed
Off = Deactivated
7 UID button

If it is Internal health led then any internal h/w issue is suspected.
If it is external health led then any power supply or power source related issue is suspected.
Also check the status of the server & its IML (Integrated Management Logs) in ilo (Integrated Lights Out ) if it is configured. (2nd RJ45 port in rear)

Also make sure the cabinet is properly closed.
