2924XL port LED Amber

I have a 2924XL problem, 5 of the port LED is AMBER (forever even if I remove the cable and the port is not working anymore) and the system LED is also AMBER. Is this a sign of hardware failure?

I did the following troubleshooting;

1. shut/unshut

2. duplex-full/speed-100

3. spanning-tree

4. upgrade the ios

5. hard reboot

all doesn't solve the problem. Any help?

See how system is booting by connecting console cable.Check whether POST is can use show post command for this

Re: 2924XL port LED Amber

I have a second switch (2924XL) in a remote site and one port is behaving the same. I reboot the switch and did "sh post" the result is "POST FAILED: FastEthernet0/19" I've check the cisco web site and found that this is hardware failure. I execute the same command in the original problem switch without rebooting it because its on production, and have the following results;

FastEthernet0/9 failed front-end loopback test

FastEthernet0/10 failed front-end loopback test

FastEthernet0/11 failed front-end loopback test

FastEthernet0/12 failed front-end loopback test

FastEthernet0/20 failed front-end loopback test

I guess I need to send it for RMA. Forgot to say that I did check the log and there is nothing there but "up/down interface".

Thanks a lot!

Log into the switch and check the logs usually it will give you some indication if something is wrong .

Please keep in mind when you restart the switch the logs are wiped.
