Status Red Lamp blinks even after ejecting all 6 drives. Fans? Mainboard?
The NAS is getting close to full, but not full. At least 1TB of space remains at last check. The 6-bays configured:
1-4 6TB x 4 = 24TB, RAID5 (18TB usable)
5-6 10TB x2 = 20TB, RAID0 (20TB usable, striping, backup for 1-4 RAID5 array)
I have ejected all 6 disks but the TS-653B still blinks with Status red lamp. So, this leads me to think, (a) the fans are bad, or (b) the unit's mainboard is bad. I have had the device for a couple of years now and up until yestereday I was able to use it normally. I have power set to automatically shutdown the NAS every evening at 2400 until whenever I decide to turn it on the following day, being the only user.
Any advice or suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.
