View Full Version : EB8 w/ Solid Yellow Light

01/17/2017, 02:57 PM
I've run into this issue and I don't see too many others running into this problem. I've checked the manual and here's what the light status says:

"The EnergyBar 8 is in boot loader mode and
has been configured by the AquaController

I'm not sure how to get this out of boot loader mode. Any tips? Everything that I've read it seems like it needs to be sent in for repair so this is my last ditch before calling in for a RMA.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I would try:

1) Move it to a different AquaBus port
2) Try a different (known good) aquabus cable
3) Disconnect then remove it from the modules page and see if it will redetect when added back

After that, yeah, Neptune support is probably your best bet.

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe blinking orange is 'bootloader mode' and solid orange is just a communications problem.

Did something happen to your system before the light went orange? Power failure? Firmware update? Disconnected and moved things around?

If the stuff JustinFromAl mentioned doesn't help, it never hurts to do a reboot of the system from the menu.
