Hi all,

The other day my LS-CHL V1 (blue admin theme) was updating firmware (http://www.buffalotech.com/support-and- ... hl-112.zip) - now either the power went off (which it did) before the firmware had finished updating, or I somehow accidentally installed the Japanese firmware version :(

Since then I cannot access it, the light just flashes blue indefinitely.

Then I have tried to locate the device through the NAS Navigator and it hasn't seen anything.

I then phoned Buffalo support and got told it needed to be put into EM mode, where by I would need to unplug the device, plug it back in and wait for 65 seconds until the flashing blue light turns solid, and if it didn't do this after 75 seconds I need to repeat until it does so. I counted 35 times in a row I tried this but the light never turned blue.

Tonight I am going to boot a linux cd and get my data backed up as the first port of call.

But what are my next options? I have read I need to do a TFTP boot (with TFTP Boot Recovery LS-CHL 1.06.exe)when the client is in EM mode... but I can't seem to get it into EM mode - or does the TFTP boot do this for me?

I'm at a loss, does anyone have any experience with this?

If I remember correctly, the acp_commander was able to bring
"old" boxes into EM mode. You will have to take a version 0.4
or later.

Please do not use private mail (PN/M) to ask questions. Use the proper forum instead. (me)

If there is no verified backup of a dataset, the dataset, by definition, is unimportant. (c't 2012)

RAID (no matter which level) never ever substitutes a backup. (me)
