RN204 wont boot

Post by old1mike » Thu May 12, 2016 2:14 am

I have tried the netgear forum to no avail. Not sure if this nas is toast. Hoping someone can help.
issue:
Power light comes on
ACT light comes on
Drive2 light comes on-only one drive it at this time. Have tried 4 2tb 7200rpm white label (WD) drives. Same issue.
LED assembly initially displays welcome message then goes to boxes.
I can bet it to boot menu. Have tried factory reset / OS6 reinstall. Still boots to above condition.
Tried connecting straight to computer. At first windows10 complained about duplicate ip (lan was set static ip 192.168.1.1).
Set lan to 192.168.125.1. For awhile did see netgear at 192.168.1.1 (all other lans disabled - doing lan scan)
Tried OS6 USB recovery. Still goes to same condition.
Any help appreciated. Do not have equipment to do serial port connection.
