Power light is not White - only see faint pink glow

Recently the Power light (Far left light on top of router) stopped showing solid white. I can see a very pale pink glow but barely visible on that light.  Router seems to work and powers on etc. I have upgraded the FW to current and tried to return it to previous when the light seemd to work but returning now doesnt make the light go white.  

Netgear info on lights says the non working light has to do with a bad FW update, but that doesnt seem to be the case.

Maybe the light has just gone bad. Router was put in service 5 years ago and has been really good till this. Even this doesnt seem to disable any functions. Just wondering if anyone has a fix or a similar issue.

Sometimes a factory reset can fix these issues
