The error LED on a CX9900 Controller is flashing. What does this mean.
What do the various NetController Error LED blink rates indicate.
An controller error has occurred.
The ERROR indicator remains OFF until an error occurs.
If the NetController fails an internal system test, the ERROR indicator blinks a preset number of times, then pauses, and repeats the blinking and pausing sequence. This blinking pattern will persist until you reset the controller.
The number of blinks between pauses identifies the specific problem (as shown in the table below).
ERROR Indicator Blink Rates (before a pause)
# Blinks Type of Failure
17 CX Firmware is corrupt (Bad Flash/ROM or bad update)
18 LAN Card's memory is faulty - Try replacing the LAN Card.
19 Problem creating certain System Tasks - Maybe due to lack of memory.
20 Problem with the NIC - Try replacing the LAN Card
22 RTC Failed - Possible Hardware issue
24 Problem with the PIT chip - H/W related
25 Problem creating Timer Tasks - Maybe due to lack of memory
28 The RAM memory is faulty or bad. Try replacing the RAM module(s).
29 to 62 Problem creating certain System Tasks - Maybe due to lack of memory.
63 Copy protection - Flash Upgrade file is invalid for this Controller
(UPD file is Serial # protected)
64 Problem creating the Uprev task - Maybe due to lack of memory.
Note: If a Plain English program disables due to an error, the ERROR indicator illuminates and stays ON (without blinking)—if this occurs, you can turn the indicator off by setting the ERRORS system variable to zero.
