5Big blinks a few times and will not boot

Post by Psuross » Sat Mar 08, 2014 12:33 pm

I am trying to restart my 5Big. We moved recently and moved it myself so it wouldn't be damaged. I went to reboot it this morning and it doesn't seem to want to start. I plug in the power and started it up. The blue lights along with the network lights blink maybe 20 time and then nothing. I hear a drive Turing for a short time, but there are no further signs of life when I cycle the power switch off and on

Any thoughts? I'd really like to be able to salvage the data.

Thanks

Are you sure you are using the right powersupply? If yes then I guess something died by the transport. As the disks are by far the most fragile part of the construction, you could try to remove them one by one, and try to boot up. If only one disk died, this is a way to boot the box.
