I have the same blue flashing light issue. Would using a firmware from a different region but the same model be a problem? I bought mine in Japan but would prefer to download from the North America site so that the instructions will be in English.
By the way my unit wont turn off even if I switch it off, it just keeps blinking. Would it still be ok to power cycle it while blinking?

Fknandrew, your unit seems to not be booting. I would try resetting it and see if you get any kind of error codes. You might have to try FAQ 2 of 5 or 3 of 5. You could try different firmware from different regions if you do the force udpate procedure, but I would not recommend it and cannot support it.

Yes, flashing firmware from the incorrect region (i suspect) caused my LS-CH500L to become inoperational. It was only functional again after tftp booting and forcing a firmware reflash (with correct EU firmware) with a drive reformat.

I have after upgrade to version 1.56 the same problem constantly flashing blue lights and the nas can't start up.
I hear the HDD start en stop wile the blue light ( both) flashes.
I think he can't boot and i can't access the nas by nasnavi or web.

Mine too. But the failure symptom is different from described.
Basically got mine for about a year. No issue in performing firmware update etc. Was able to copy, download, upload, stream etc with no real problem.
But just yesterday, the unit just fail to turn ON. The fan was still functioning, but the blue LED just won't light up. It can't be detected in the network as well.
Very dissappointed as most of my photo and documents are in the drive.
Anyone faced same situation. Any remedy?

Hi, the link above is no longer active. Has it been moved elsewhere? I dropped my drive for about a 30cm height and the light is flashing blue continuously.

I am also experiencing difficulty in booting my LS-CH1.0TL and in reading through this thread, I found your link to a step by step guide in recovering the NAS. However, clicking on the link does not take me to the guide. Could you please advise on how I could get this guide.
