Why Does My Personal Cloud Blinking White

Generally, a drive’s LED blinks white in three different stages:

  1. During startup

  3. While performing some activity

In the Seagate Personal Cloud drive case, it occurs in two different stages:

  1. During startup
  2. While performing the reset process

During Startup

  1. Connect the Seagate drive to your network device using an Ethernet cable.
  2. Plug the drive’s power cord into the AC outlet.
  3. Now, you can see the drive turning on and the white light blinking on its panel.
  4. The blinking white light turns solid once the drive is ready to use.

During Reset

  1. When you initiate the reset process on your Seagate Personal Cloud drive, the LED starts blinking red. And after a while, you can see that it changes to a blinking white light.
  2. Once the reset process is completed, the LED turns from blinking white to a non-blinking white light.
