I have two MBL’s - both working fine - both on latest firmware - been working for well over a year. They sit in the basement on a desk. The other day I powered them down via the UI - to rearrange some equipment on the desk. I powered them down via the UI - unplugged them - put them aside - and then put back in place. One drive powered up fine - the other starts with a blue LED (normal) - then goes to a red LED (not normal - should be yellow/green) - then completes the boot process - and then the LED turns off. The drive remains spinning and is completely function and UI accessible. Diagnostic tests show now errors.
Since the drive did not contain any data - I did a quick factory reset. The reset was successful - but red light continues during boot up - and then turns off.
Since I rarely use (or even look at these drives) it is possible that the LED problem may have occured a while ago - and I just never noticed. To the best of my knowledge the drives have not been bumped or dropped.
Any idea why this is happening - and is it easily fixable? Almost looks like something got zapped in the firmware.
Unlike other posts about the RED led problem - my drive actually appears to be functioning just fine - other than the LED issue.
