Drobo mini power led flashes but won't turn on
My Drobo Mini abruptly powered down during normal use. It's populated with 4x2TB drives and all drives were showing green with space available before it switched itself off.

Now whenever I connect the PSU to the unit, the small green LED above the power socket on the back of the unit flashes - one long flash followed by 3 short flashes, and the unit will not power on.

The light on the PSU plug itself is solid green - I've tested the PSU and it's giving out a solid 12.2V.

Holding the power button down causes the power LED on the rear of the unit to blink rapidly after 10 seconds, for as long as the button is held.

No change after leaving the unit to cool overnight (it didn't seem to be running hot anyway) or removing all of the drives and trying to power up the unit with no drives or connections.

Has anyone else seen this behaviour/remedied it?
