After 5 years my drive has some problems :)

In my case the front led stays off and the back hdd leds are blinking red,
which is not defined anywhere in the led messages I could find online.

I thought it was the fan and changed it to a new one but no joy.

I now ordered a new power supply and will try with that when it arrives.
The old power source does some funny noises if you listen closely, sounds
like a bad capacitor that doesn't hold the charge.

Did anybody encounted the same issue?

In any case the front led should come on or blink if you power up. If that doesn't happen then indeed it might be a power supply issue or another hardware failure

Good news! I got the new power supply and everything is working again like a charm!
Thanks @fvdw for your input.
