ix4-200d constantly blinking red - please help!

Post by janusp » Thu May 16, 2013 7:16 am

Hi All,
I am new to iomega and this forum.
I am seeking your advice in the following case:

I use ix4-200d with 4 HDD Seagate Barracuda Green 2000GB (ST2000DL003). After powered on, the device is working properly for few hours and then red light starts to bling and message appears: device in downgraded mode, etc.

What I have done 1:
- verified that disks do not require any formware upgrade
- verified that disks work properly outside ix4 and formatted them
- put back all 4 disks into ix4
- ix4 started to rebuild...whatever it is
- after rebuilding applied ix4 firmware update

Result:
- red light blinking

What I have done 2:
- removed 2 disks
- repeated procedure as above
- installed only 2 disks

Result:
- red light blinking

What I have done 3:
- removed two 2TB disks and replaced them with two 500GB Hitachi Deskstar disks (HDP725050GLA360)
- repeated procedure as above

Result:
- red light blinking

This is the problem I face since 2 months and I start to HATE iomega.
Please, can anyone help me how to fix it?

Thanks
Przemek
