Duo - blue light keeps on blinking slowly but not full boot

Postby Darwinian » Mon May 03, 2010 4:39 am

Hi,

Few hours ago I've updated Transmission 1.92 to 1.93b04 via local. Once the update is done I was unable to restart Transmission so I restart Duo via web interface.

It seemed booting up normally with green Activity light blinking along with blue LED. Normally, the blue LED should stop but it keeps on blinking slowly and no Activity light and both Disk 1 & 2 green lights stay lit.

I manually shut down for a second time by keep holding a power button, released it and it shut down. Wait for a minute and turn it on again. But the symptom remain the same - blue LED keeps on blinking slowly, no activity light and both Disk 1 & 2 LED's are lit steady. Fan is woking fine.

I can't access to Frontview web interface whatsoever. Once time I got to the Frontview but it showed no data and the upper right hand says "ReadyNas null."

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks,

Darwin

Sounds like your memory is full. I've had problems accessing Frontview when running backups with the ReadyNas null message for example (Firefox worked fine for me).

Do you have SSH access set up?

If so and you can get in, what's the output of the following?:
Code: Select all
cat /proc/meminfo

If you have SSH access and want to uninstall the Transmission add-on, take a look at this: Uninstall Add-On via SSH Console

Thanks mdgm. Luckily I didn't have to deal with SSH. I am not technical.

What I did the second time was manually shut it down. Unplugged it for a couple minutes. Turned it back on and everything went back to normal. Hope I didn't speak too soon. Peww....

Glad that the reboot worked. Should've suggested that. Too often I think it as something obvious that people would've already tried.

Another thing I could've mentioned is that if you have problems with an add-on, sometimes a firmware re-install can help (this will re-install the ReadyNas OS, leaving the data intact). Keep this in mind for future reference.
