That likely means that it has an IOS error. You'll need to console in and see if it's in ROMMON. If it is, perform the following to fix it:

Configure a TFTP server/PC to use the address

Place a 1240 autonomous image in the TFTP root directory

Rename the file "c1240-k9w7-tar.default"

Connect the PC to the AP using a crossover cable (a normal should also work)

Turn the AP off, then power it back on while holding the MODE button

Release the button once the AP LEDs turn red

That should load the IOS image back on for you.

Jeff's right. It's it's only red light all the time then the AP is on ROMMON.
