FSM7328S (Power LED flashes)

Hello!

I've been using NETGEAR peripherals for quite a long time.

I've recently had a problem with a layer 3 manageable switch :FSM7328S.

It's now impossible for me to communicate with it via a serial port. I tried all possible speeds, not a single character comes out...

The Power LED, after a short while, flashes regularly...

According to the documentation, the problem may come from the CPU or from the flash memory (corrupted or erased) and/or from a BOOT CODE problem.

Is there any solution to this problem? Does any utility tool exist (other than the switch recovery tool) ?

Thank you for helping me.
Best regards

Have you tried connecting to the serial console during boot time?

Also double check you are using the correct serial settings for this switch

My fsm7328S just gave up the ghost with this issue. ON the serial I get... ----------------------------------------------------- U-Boot 0.3.0 (Oct 2 2007 - 16:15:57) Board: Netgear FSM73xxS DRAM: 128 MB Flash: 16 MB ------------------------ with nothing else and not interactive. IS this recoverable? TIA Francis

I have a similar issue my GSM7328Sv1 fails to post (solid amber power , then flashing amber power) ... and I don't even have the CD that supposedly has the recovery tool on it ( previous IT guy left mess when he took off). Are there any downloads for it?
