You will need to try the force update but you will have to do it from a PC.

Hi all,

I have just bought a buffalo  LS-CH1 1 terra bytes, but i have lost the admin password, i have tried to reset the device many times but now i have a red blinking light (6 times blinking).

It seems it's a hard drive failure, i have tried to force the update with tftp but i have no luck, i have done the faq3 but i still can't upgrade the firmware with the ls utility it don't find the nas on the network although tftp gave me one adress 192.168.11.150 during the tftp transfer of the two buffalo files.

Someone can help me, is it possible to remove the hard drive without losing the waranty.

What you should do is call up technical support, have them walk you through the TFTP boot, and if it fails, get an RMA on the unit. Then can set you up with an advanced RMA and you can swap the drive from your current unit to the replacement unit.

I figured it out!!!

 

1.) Shut the LS off completely until it stops blinking via the switch on the back (leave in the power cord)

2.) hold the "function" button while turning the LS on and wait for the "function" button to blink repeatedly blue

3.) release the "function" button and depress it again

 

The LS will begin to blink amber on the activity light and reset the password. It'll take a few minutes to complete the reset process.

Did anyone manage to get this to work as nothing I have tried will let me back into the device and none of my shares work either?
