Multicolored camera LEDs
There are four LEDs on the edgertronic high speed camera.
|Top LED on Ethernet connector near USB connector
|Cable speed||Off - 10 Mbps|
On - 100 Mbps
|Bottom LED on Ethernet connector near power connector
Green or Orange LED, depending camera serial number
Link Beat and network activity
|Off - No network connection|
On - Link beat detected, network ready
Blinking - network activity, packets being sent or received

|Close to Multi-function button||Camera status||See table below.|
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).|
|Red / Green||Test mode - you will not see this in normal operation.|
|Red / Yellow||Configured for DHCP-only but no DHCP server has provided an IP address. Camera cannot communicate over Ethernet.|
|Red / Magenta||Unused.|
|Yellow blinking||System boot in progress. Blinks for 26 seconds then turns solid yellow. May take up to 146 seconds the first time a recovery image uSD Card is used.|
|Yellow / Blue||System ready, Ethernet not connected.|
|Yellow||System ready, Ethernet connected, using fixed IP address (typically 10.11.12.13 but can be changed by network configuration file)|
|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|
|Off||*no message*||Waiting for system to become ready.|
|Red / Blue||Storage Unusable, Trying to Save||No usable storage device, usually due to the storage device being full and camera is ready to save video(s). Try a different storage device.|
|Red / White||Storage Unusable, No Genlock||No usable storage device, usually due to the storage device being full and receiver camera unable to detect genlock signal from source camera. Try a different storage device.|
|Red / Green||Storage Unusable||No usable storage device, usually due to the storage device being full and camera is ready to be triggered. Try a different storage device.|
|Red / Magenta||Storage Unusable, Triggered||No usable storage device, usually due to the storage device being full and camera has been triggered and is filling post-trigger buffer. Try a different storage device.|
|Blue / White||Saving No Genlock Signal||Saving captured video to storage device and receiver camera unable to detect genlock signal from source camera.|
|Blue / Green||Saving, Ready||Saving captured video to storage device and camera is ready to be triggered. (Background Save Mode)|
|Blue / Magenta||Saving, Triggered||Saving captured video to storage device and camera has been triggered and is filling post-trigger buffer. (Background Save Mode)|
|Blue blinking||Saving||Saving captured video to storage device.|
|White blinking||No Genlock Signal||Genlock receiver camera unable to detect genlock signal from source camera.|
|White / Green||Genlock Configuration Warning||Incompatible Genlock source and receiver settings and camera is ready to be triggered.|
|White / Magenta||Genlock Configuration Warning||Incompatible Genlock source and receiver settings and camera has been triggered and is filling post-trigger buffer.|
|Green blinking||Pre-trigger Fill, Ready||Filling pre-trigger buffer and camera is ready to be triggered..|
|Green||Ready||Pre-trigger buffer filled (new capture video frames overwriting oldest data) and camera is ready to be triggered..|
|Magenta blinking||Triggered||Camera has been triggered and is filling post-trigger buffer.|
|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.|
|Yellow blinking||Calibrating Camera||Calibrating.|
|White||Attached Accessories||Overrides the current camera LED pattern for 3 seconds to indicate an accessory, such as a radar device, has been attached.|
