      Hi all,
       
       
      Question:
      How can i bring the Linkstation back online?
      Once it is revived, where should I start reading to replace the Buffalo OS?
       
      =========
      Problem:
      I have a 250Gig Buffalo Linkstation HD-H250LAN.  I've been subscribed to this list since I bought it a couple months ago, but only passivly reading, and now I have a problem.
      This weekend, I tried to access the Linkstation from my Linux laptop, using using "mount cifs ..." as normally works.  But this time it stalled and returned nothing from the command line.  I tried accessing the Linkstation from my XP box, that too stalled and did nothing.  Trying the Power button did nothing.  Holding it for 10sec & release, 20sec & release, all did nothing.  As the last resort, I unplugged the power.
      ========
      Situation:
      Now, when the Linkstation boots up, it goes through what looks like a the system check, I can hear the HD spin up to speed, but then the green lights go out and the Red Light flashes & then the HD appears to stop spinning.
      I have about 30gigs of files on this drive that I want to save.  I'm thinking this would be a good time to switch from the Buffalo OSv2.1 to something more stable, like what is going on here.
      I have never used the USB option, only the 100MB LAN connection.

        Hi,

        1.  On the back of the unit is a reset button.  Hold it down for ten seconds and release, you won't loose the data.
         
        2.  Go into the Links section of this group, and download the latest firmware 1.46 from the FTP site.  (there is 1.45_13 on there which does have telnet access enabled, which may be more useful).
         
        If your LAN has a DHCP server, the LS will automatically get an IP address from it when in recovery mode, so you can go and reinstall the firmware, then access your data again.
         
        Hope this helps,
        Andrew.

          FYI,

          The red LED blinks are defined by,

          blink 3 times: Partition error. It occurs when /dev/hda3 not be
          mounted on /mnt. You can ignore it.
          blink 4 times: Fan error
          blink 5 times: FLASH ROM error. Sometimes, you can repair it by
          pulling out power cord and try again after one night.
          blink 6 times: Hard disk error. ppc_uartd not booted.
          blink 7 times: RAM/LAN/HDD Controler error

            Hi all,
             
            Here's my situation:
            The Linkstation boots, and the green power light blinks 23 times and stops.  Then the Diag red light blinks 6 times.
            stratmoens told me:  "blink 6 times: Hard disk error. ppc_uartd not booted."
            I tried unplugging the power for 24hrs and trying again, but no result.  I've also tried holding the red Reset button for 10-20sec and no results.
             
            What is ppc_uartd and how do i boot it?
            Scott

            Hi,

            Here is what I would try to do:

            1. On the back of the unit is a reset button. Hold it down for ten
            seconds and release, you won't loose the data.

            2. Go into the Links section of this group, and download the latest
            firmware 1.46 from the FTP site. (there is 1.45_13 on there which does

              When I had a similar symptom, I fixed it by removing my hard drive, putting it in my desktop, booting Knoppix or Trinity Rescue Kit from a CD, wiping the disk, reinserting it into the LS, then reinstalling the firmware.

               

              It's kind of a pain, but by the time you do it for the third or fourth time, you kind of get the hang of it!  ;-)

               

              Best of luck,

               

              Chris
