Unusual Occurance

I usually leave the PGXL powered on, however, When I am done I will put the PGXL into Standby Mode. The other night I looked into the computer/radio room and saw what appeared to be a flashing light like 3 short on and nothing and again 3 short on and nothing. I am not sure how long this was going on. Since I am not able to see the back of the PGXL I decided to turn off the the PGXL from the switch in the back of the unit. The light stopped flashing as soon as I turned the unit off. The question is what is this light in the PGXL and why was it flashing. I have not noticed any flashing since then and I still leave the power on but the unit in standby mode when not in use. I should note the unit came back from servicing in late November.

    What light was flashing? The green fan backlighting or flashing from the NIC port in back of amp? Is it possible you had a brown out before noticing the flashing light?

    The fan backlighting is normally solid.

    Yellow for standby, green for idle, and red for TX.

    I thought it was flashing red but not sure as it was in the middle of the night when I saw it as I walked by computer/radio room so I just turned off the power switch. I didn't think there was a light on the NIC port. The amp sits on the floor so I really couldn't see where it was coming from since I couldn't get behind the amp. The backlighting can be viewed from the front as It is behind the "handlebar" in the front. I have not seen this since it first occurred. Just curious.
