VMIVME 7751 LED Blinks Rapidly


The LEDs on VMIVME 7751 are rapidly blinking on and off (10BaseT/100BaseT alternating yellow and green with the red reset LED on).


This is an indication of VMIVME 7751 being held in reset.  Usually, clearing the CMOS resolves this issue. Clearing the CMOS requires the placement of a jumper across two pins (or shorting them with a metal object), or by closing a switch.  Holding the pins shorted (or the switch closed) for a couple of seconds is all that is typically necessary.  However, some devices may require different sequences (for example, cycling power while jumper is in place).  Refer to the product document for instructions on clearing the CMOS.
