WB 1TB blu light flashes but wont startup
The my book world has 3 different kinds of flashes.
1. Fast flashing (every 3 seconds) - Which means it's going into standby mode.
2. Slow flashing (every 5 seconds) - Which means it's in standby mode.
3. Alternative flashing between inner and outer ring - Means RAID failure (this only applies if you have the RAID compatible version [dual drive my book world])
4. Simultaneous flashing - Means the drive is overheating and the drive needs to be shut down.
Try resetting the drive, using the link below for guidance (this will not effect your data). If the drive does power-up, you will need to change the IP to static, if you had it that way before and you will need to login with the following login details: Username: admin | Password: 123456
