I leave my 6600 on most of the time but today I've cycled it on and off a few time and see it flashes red once before starting the green flash cycle
thanks Ed

1 red flash is a fan problem, what are you seeing at each start up?

You should not be seeing any blinking red on startup, Perhaps the fan is a little slow spinning up and it is being detected?
Shoot off a help ticket and ask Flex.

Does the radio boot up and run normal ?  If it's a fan issue the radio will shut itself down after a couple of minutes.  At least that was the case with my fan failure.  Either way open a support ticket with Flex.

Joe , My fan is making a tick tick sound and I've procrastinated on the repair . Now the tick tick sound is slower . FRS is repairing the Fan Thursday .

Thanks for clarifing Ed.  That makes sense.  I hope Flex will change to a more robust fan in the future.  My fan was dead on arrival !  All is good now though.
