flashing lights on STD2401LW-S

flashing lights on STD2401LW-S

Please help

The STD2401LW-S I have has stoped working.

A breief history of what has been happening

* started chewing tapes on friday.
* refused to acnowledge tapes on Tuesday and snaped 2
* reported that any tape put into it wasn't of the correct format
* stoped me from putting tapes in
* all 3 lights are flashing in unison in a pattern
* now reporting as offline

I am completly stumped as all info I find about the lights don't mention anything like this.

I have resigned myself to the fact it may need replacing but I would like to be able to try things till we get a replacement (as it may take some time).

I haven't restarted the machine it is in as it is our main server. But I will be trying that tonight.

Thanks in advance for any help
