Question about Medea VideoRaid RT
Check the powersupply and the drives. I suspect the powersupply may also be a problem with the drives, I'm not too fimiliar with this setup.

Hi again and welcome back to FixYa,
As it would seem that you were unable to view my Clarification post in your "Ask Me".
Initially, your description of "the power light, rather than stay on, is also cycling on and off" is indicative that the electronics/interface of the Medea VideoRaid is no longer recognizing the hard drive(s) installed inside (most likely), or the electronics/interface itself is faulty (least likely). You could try running a file recovery program/utility and see if files inside could be recovered (if needed) or run a partitioning/formatting utility. Otherwise it would be a hardware problem and of course would require the services of a qualified professional. If you are considering a DIY (do-it-yourself), then you must have access to the service manual and/or the checklist/procedures. You have an advantage since there are other Medea VideoRaid readily available for you to compare performance, voltage checks and temporary donor of parts or test bed.
Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection of the inside. Pls post back result(s) with photos if at all possible.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

"Drive activity light-
blue light - A blinking blue light indicates the computer is reading data from or writing data to the SATA hard drive, CD, DVD or HDD."
Safe to ignore. It will blink even when the computer appears to be idle.
