Blue led very very dim

I have had this 4tb WD Personal for about 3 years? give or take. I dont have sleep enabled since it never worked as advertised. Anyways the blue status light has grown old. Do you guys have the same thing going on with your units? Its hardly visible anymore. I back the unit up every few months .


do a forum search (magnifying glass icon upper right) if you haven’t already. There are a number of people who have reported the front LED has stopped working or has stopped showing blue.

A few past discussions about front LED issues.

thanks I thought it was an isolated thing. Im kinda glad to know its common.

Same here. Oddly, the LED does illuminate when the drive is doing something unusual, like starting up. But then it turns off completely in normal operation.
