There are four LEDs on the edgertronic high speed camera.
|On Ethernet connector near power connector|| Network
link and activity
| Off - no network connection|
On - network connection
Blinking - network activity, packets being sent or received
|On Ethernet connector near USB connector|| Network
10 or 100 Mbit/s
| Off - 10 Mbit/s link|
On - 100 Mbit/s link

Global device status indications
- All LEDs off and fan off means no power.
- Red indicates error.
- If fan is on and system status LED is off then the device firmware needs to be updated (FPGA EEPROM contents are invalid). One customer used the wrong power supply and had these same symptoms, so first check you are using the power supply that came with the camera.
- Blinking LED indicates activity.
|Red||System processor not booting. Micro SD card needs to be re-imaged.|
|Red blinking||if camera LED is also blinking red, then the camera update file loaded on the big SD card is corrupt. Delete the file in the big SD card, save it on the big SD card again, and reboot the camera. You can get more details on what went wrong by browsing to the camera (http://10.11.12.13 if you are using the fixed IP address).|
|Yellow blinking||System boot in progress.|
|Yellow / Blue||System ready, Ethernet not connected.|
|Yellow||System ready, Ethernet connected, using default fixed IP address 10.11.12.13.|
|Magenta||System ready, Ethernet connected, using fixed IP address other than default IP address.|
|Blue blinking||System boot in progress. Ethernet connected, camera using DHCP assigned IP address.|
|Blue||System ready, Ethernet connected, using DHCP assigned IP address.|
|White pattern|| System firmware update in progress. Do not power cycle.|
Total time to perform an update is around 7 minutes - be patient! Time will vary if you use a different micro SD card than the one that came with the camera.
The Camera LED indicates the current camera status condition.
Multiple status conditions may occur simultaneously, but the LED can only show one status condition at a time. The following table lists the status indications in priority order.
|Color||Matching web message||Meaning|
|Red blinking||Slave not receiving Genlock||Genlock slave camera unable to detect genlock signal from master camera.|
|Red / White||Genlock configuration error||Genlock configuration error. Incompatible master and slave settings.|
|Red / Green||No usable storage device, usually due to the storage device being full. Camera has video ready to save. Try a different storage device to save video.|
|Red / Magenta||Memory Card Unusable||Storage device bad. Try a different storage device.|
|Red / Blue||Insert memory card||Storage device missing or has been unmounted. Remove all unmounted storage devices and install a storage device with available space.|
|Red / Yellow||Memory card full||Storage device full. Install a storage device with room to hold video files.|
|Off||*no message*||Waiting for system to become ready.|
|Yellow blinking||Calibrating Camera||Calibrating.|
|Green blinking||Pre-trigger Fill||Filling pre-trigger buffer. Ready for capture.|
|Green||*No Message*||Pre-trigger buffer filled (new capture video frames overwriting oldest data). Ready for capture.|
|Magenta blinking||Post-trigger fill||Capturing video to fill post-trigger buffer.|
|Blue blinking||Saving||Saving captured video to storage device.|
|Cyan||Reviewing||Reviewing previously captured, but unsaved videos. Individual frames that have been captured can be review and regions captured videos can be selectively saved.|
