Its a POST power on self test failure and basically a hardware failure on the switch. Please go head and get a replcement of the switch. Open a TAC case and request of the RMA with all the switch details.

HTH,Please rate of ot does.

Yup, You should go for an RMA. You never know when this switch can fail in new future. This seems to be a hardware issue. Go ahead and get an RMA.
