    Anyone have an idea why the MP with a box around it (third LED from the right) blinks red on one of my CF-29's when in use compared to green on my other ones?

    It still works perfectly fine, it just has a red LED instead of green...

    Mine only shows red (solid) when the MP battery is depleted.

    From the CF-29 User Manual:

    The red indicator blinks:

    Quickly save your data and power off your computer. Remove the battery pack and disconnect the AC adaptor, then connect them again. If the problem persists, contact Panasonic Technical Support. The battery pack or charging circuit may be defective.



    Might want to perform the battery calibration to cycle the batteries...

    Ludedude,
    If you have a battery in the media bay it has died and will no longer take a charge. If you don't have a battery in the bay, I have no clue why it would blink red. Solid red means the battery is depleted and will turn orange when you supply power and it is charging.

    It could mean that something has crossed or shorted on the internal connections. Take out the battery, hard drive and floppy/CD caddy and blow out all the connections inside. Or take the back off and check for crossed connections. I think it was Teo that sugested using an old tothbrush to light scrub all connections to make sure tht nothing is stuck between the pins. Depending on who owned the laptop before you... Who know what is inside the laptop.

    It's actually a CD-ROM inside the bay. If I put that CD-ROM into another TB, it blinks green. If I take another CD-ROM and place it in "the red" bay, it still blinks red but the actual CD-ROM works perfectly fine. It's so weird.

    I can 100% say that this TB has NEVER been opened by it's users until I've received it. I guess I'll take it back apart and see if I can find anything.

    Thanks!
