Noisy power light..... - rick1959 - 06-17-2020

This morning, for the first time I can remember, the power light began flickering with noise. The noise sounds like a fluttering relay with some light beeping. I'm currently using Balena Etcher to flash an SD card. Disconnecting the AC power supply had no effect.

When Etcher finished, the noise stopped the flickering continues.....

Not aware of anything being mentiond about this particular event. Does anyone have an idea?

Many Thanks, Rick :-)

It's not noisy, it's showing disk activity.

Unless you are saying that it is continuing to flash on/off?

Thanks for helping!

It was odd it occurred only when using Etcher to write to an SD card.....

And being the eMMC is solid state, it never made any sounds like that before....

No big concerns about it. Thought it might be worth mentioning.

Will post anything else that happens....

Many Thanks, Rick :-)
