LCD Status Messages

When the system's Active ID indicator signifies an error condition, open the bezel to see further information provided by the LCD. The LCD can display two lines of alphanumeric characters. The display codes are presented in two color combinations:

  • White characters on a blue background Information only; no action is required.
  • Amber characters on a black background The system needs attention.

Removing LCD Status Messages

For faults associated with sensors, such as temperature, voltage, fans, and so on, the LCD message is automatically removed when that sensor returns to a normal state. For example, if temperature for a component goes out of range, the LCD will display the fault; when the temperature returns to the acceptable range, the message is removed from the LCD display. For other faults, you must take some action to remove the message from the display:

  • Clear the system event log You can perform this task remotely, but you will lose the event history for the system.
  • Chassis intrusion When you remove the cover, the system assumes that you are servicing the bad component; the LCD clears when you replace the cover.
  • Power cycle Turn off the system and disconnect it from the electrical outlet; wait approximately 10 seconds, and then connect the power cable and restart the system.

Any of these actions will remove fault messages and return the status indicators and LCD colors to the normal state. Messages will reappear under the following conditions:

  • The sensor returns to a normal state but fails again, resulting in a new system event log entry.
  • The system is reset and new error events are detected.
  • A failure is recorded from another source that maps to the same LCD message.

The table below lists the LCD status messages that can occur and the probable cause for each message.
