The hardware specifications list was valid at the time this manual was published.

LEDs and Acoustic Signals

Your appliance is equipped with a variety of LEDs and acoustic signals. The front panel contains one power LED (green), one status LED (greed/red), one disc LED (yellow), and various port LEDs. Two acoustic signals indicate appliance boots up or installation was completed.

The Status LED is labeled either with a heartbeat symbol or the term 'Status'. It indicates the appliance’s operational state by changing colors between green and red and by changing between blinking and steady glowing. The tables below show the different meanings of the different glowing states and acoustic signals:
