Baystack 425 flashing amber on all ports

Had a stack of baystacks 425, they lost power and are now all flashing amber on all ports LEDs.

Can't seem to be able to reset them using the UI button. Want to set all to standalone but doesn't work with UI button and so far the console port doesn't work with hyperterminal.

Make sure you're using the correct console cable...if it's not wired correctly, hyperterminal will continue to give you a blank stare no matter what you do. A great way to verify your cable is to try it on another switch that's working ok. Your hyperterminal comm settings should be 9600 baud, 8 data bits, one stop bit, no parity, and flow control disabled...assuming no one changed the default console settings on the switches.

If you are still having trouble getting a prompt from the console, you can try the following procedure, although this is only known to work on earlier versions of the Baystack switches...

Shut down the power and wait for about a minute. With hyperterminal connected...turn on the power and type "NetICs" (don't include the quotes) within 15 seconds of turning on the power. This should place you in a privileged mode and allow you to use the menu to reset the switches to factory defaults. Good luck!

Pride Jazzy 1103 Ultra controller code: when the "on" button is pushed and held down, three red, four amber, and one green LED come on and are solid (not flashing), and there is a second LED gauge...

Seven blinking LED's indicate a "Joystick Fault" on the controllers Pride uses. Could be just the actual joystick itself, the part you move to make the chair move, or it could be other electronics in the controller. Here's a link to troubleshooting info:

Screen will not come on hard drive light no light checked power supply is ok

Things to check:
  1. Power led on the front of the tower, it should be solid green when on. Flashing Amber is generally an indication of a bad power supply inside the tower
  2. Power LED Solid AMBER indicates system is not finishing the power on self test (POST) and you remove all connections from the tower except power and try turning on again. If no change, remove all PCI and PCI-E cards from system, try again, no change replace motherboard.
  3. On the back of the tower are 4 diagnostic LEDs near the ps2 ports marked ABCD, after the POST, during a normal boot the will flash in several sequences and with boot is finished all 4 should be green. If they stop an a different pattern, then that indicates a failure Yellow Yellow Green Green indicate bad RAM for example
  4. If the LEDs on front and back are Green then the system appears to be booting but the monitor display is not functional

Computer will not load. I push the power button and it just runs.

Here are some things to check
  1. Power LED (It should be solid green) if flashing or solid Amber, then a power supply or motherboard problem.
  2. On the back, near the PS2 Ports, are 4 diagnostic LEDs marked ABCD. When running normally they are all green. During boot they flash on and off during each sequence of the POST, if they stop at t code AAGG for example is bad RAM
  3. If the Power and Diag LEDs are normal, then reseat the video card if an AGP card is installed or remove it an try the integrated video.

Dell optiplex gx 280 locking up and running out of control

THe GX280 had 2 sets of LEDs that provide information on the POST. First is the POWER LED, if it is Solid Amber or Flashing Amber then there is a MB or Power issue.

The othre indicators are on the BACK near the PS2 ports, 4 LEDs Marked ABCD. These LEDs normally cycles then stop all 4 green (GGGG indication) if they stop in a different configuration (AAGG is a memory issue for example) then that can clue you in to the fault.

From the basic description, I'd say the MB has failed.

Internal led of ML350 server is 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.
