Question about Dell PowerConnect 2016 (pct2016) Networking Switch

3 Answers

Dell Powerconnect 2016 All leds are on, solid no blinking.

Does anyone know what it means when all the LED's on the front pannel are solid green. User manual has no answer. Was working fine until today computers will have a connection no problem, then the LED's all turn solid green and i have no connection.

Thanks

Had same problem with my Dell Pwoerconnect 2016, power it on and all LEDs light up but nothing works.
The problem was traced to one or both output capacitors ( 10v 680uf ) on the ( tiny ) power supply.
Capacitor symptoms include bulging or rounded tops instead of flat like new one and the rubber plug in base of capacitor protruding.
Capacitors need to be replaced.
I have successfully replaced with 10v 1000uf and 10v 1200uf, both Rubycon and Sanyo brands.
Power to the switch board is now restored and the switch is able to function just fine.
Give it a go and see if it works for your Powerconnect.

    Thanks, BigAlExpert! Even 2 years (1/30/2011) later your post helped me. I also used 1000uf caps, and it has looked great for the past couple of hours. Very much appreciated! :-)

    After 3 years of your post still resolving problems. Congratulations.!!! One over voltage current seems to damage the to capacitors. I replace them by two 1000uF 50V (what I had) and works perfectly.
    Thanks again!

    Exactly Right On. A 15 minute fix and saved me probably $ 150. Thanks!

Are all three rows of lights on solid green?? This is either some sort of switch failure or possibly a broadcast storm, network loop condition, or defective NIC card in an attached computer.

With the lights on, try removing all of the data cables...slowly, one at a time. If the lights go off, check to see where the cable goes that you just removed. If all of the lights remain on even with no network cables attached, then the switch has probably failed. Confirm this by unplugging power and plugging back in...with no data cables...if problem returns...the switch will need to be replaced.

The Lights blinking with no cables in it? There is a problem with the power. The power to the mainboard must be 3.3 volts.
I've solved it with new condensators in the powersupply,

I got dell optiplex 755 desktop computer in the power supply unit at the back there is a small button and a green light what are these for??


It help diagnose problems with your computer

A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.

A solid yellow:- the power is operating fine but your computer not processing data. This could mean there is a problem with the CPU or another component on the motherboard.

A blinking yellow light: power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly. This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.

A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode

LED Indicators - LaCie 2big Network
The LED indicators above the drive bays and the front LED indicate drive status and activity.
During Startup
  • Front LED – blinks red/blue until both disks are powered on, then turns solid blue.
  • Rear LEDs – blinks red/blue until corresponding disk is powered on, then turns solid blue.
NOTE: If the device is not able to initiate the boot process following disk startup, the front is solid red.
During Bootup
  • Front LED – solid blue
  • Rear LEDs – solid blue
NOTE: If a disk is failing, both the disk’s corresponding rear LED and the front LED will be solid red.
During RAID Synchronization
  • Front LED – solid red
  • Rear LEDs – The LED corresponding to the original disk will be blinking blue and the one being synchronized is blinking red
  • Once both disks are synchronized, their corresponding rear LED and the front LED will be solid blue.
