Question about Medea VideoRaid RT

Malfunctioning Medea RT 4/180 VideoRaid

Hi...I have a couple of Medea VideoRaids storing data from my Media 100 Video editing system. I lost "contact" with one a while ago. Looks like it might be in the RAID itself. The blue lights on the unit, while they're cycling on and off, one of five of the lights is cycling independently and the power light, rather than stay on, is also cycling on and off. Does this sound familiar at all??? Thanks

    Hi and welcome to FixYa,

    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.
