TC fails to boot : amber light then power off
My Time Capasule (1st gen) fails to start up : when plugged in, the TC light stay solid amber during about 10 seconds, then it turns off.
Does anyone know what can be the root cause and what can be the solution?
A solid amber light is an indication of an internal failure within the Time Capsule. Some of these models got the DeathStar HD... so that's a possibility,
Try powering the Time Capsule down (unplug) for 30 minutes minimum and then try the factory reset again. If that fails try this: Connect your TC to your computer with an Ethernet cable, with it plugged in hold the button until the amber light switches off, unplug, plug in and reset (5-10 seconds until light flashes), using Airport Utility see if the TC is working.
