: Crashed LS420D8A8
: RedArrow September 08, 2020, 11:35:50 AM
Hi. If this is a duplicate post I apologise.
Following several power cuts my LS420D8A8 is showing a continuous error signal of 2 long red flashes and 2 short red flashes that the manual says to format the drives.
Prior to the power cuts the unit was running fine.  I cannot turn the unit off on the power switch.  I have turned the mains off with the power switch off and turned on with the same error.  I can Ping the unit but not see it with Win 10 even putting in the IP address and the navigator does not find it.

I have tried the WEB Interface but just get a grey screen with a few slightly different boxes but no interface.

Since original post I removed the drives and turned the unit on and go 7 short red flashes, software corupt.

Has anyone any suggestions?


Post Note

I contacted Buffalo Technical Support Portal (https://www.buffalo-technology.com/service-support/support/technischer-support/).  They were very helpful, although out of warranty, and provided information to restore the unit back to working although I lose the data.  I can give more details if anyone need help.
