PIX 501 Flashing Lights

A friend of mine has a PIX501 and whenever he boots up, all the lights start to flash and never stop. What could be or is the issue? My first thought is an IOS issue.

Thanks!!

Re: PIX 501 Flashing Lights

I believe the lights are a diagnostic in nature, indicating a problem with the device.

Your friend should open a case with TAC and if TAC determines that it is indeed a hardware problem, TAC can assist your friend in replacing the device if it is covered by a Smartnet contract.

Re: PIX 501 Flashing Lights

Hi,

I had the same problem w/ my PIX-501. It worked fine for 6 months then it started to flash anytime a cable was plugged into it. The flashing was actually the PIX rebooting over and over again. TAC replaced it w/ a new one and this second one has been fine now for 7 months.

C-ya,

Mike
