Amber light blinking for Cisco RPS 675

I have an RPS 675 and there is 4 Cisco Catalyst switches connected to it. I recently had to power off all the switches. When I powered them back on, all the DC Output lights are blinking on the RPS 675. 3 of them are blinking green, and one of them is blinking amber.

I'm reading that this is because the RPS is supplying power to one of the switches. How can I switch from the RPS supplying power, to the normal internal power without the switch being powered off? The switch IS plugged in normally. It should have normal power supplied.

This is a blub out of the install guide page 1-6 [link below]

If you connect a device to the RPS when it is in active mode (Standby/Active LED green), the RPS might unnecessarily begin supplying backup power to the device. This situation might occur if you connect the device before it is powered up, or if the RPS does not immediately sense that the device power supply was supplying power. In this case, the RPS would not be available as a backup power source for other connected devices.
Figure 1-3 shows the Standby/Active button.
Press the Standby/Active button to change the RPS 675 from active mode to standby mode when you connect devices. When you change the mode to active, the Standby/Active LED turns green.

When you turned the switches back on, to the RPS it was the same as connecting a new device.

If thing to try might be to simply put the RPS into standby for a few moments then go back to active mode. Hopefully that will force a reset.

yeh i guess I'll have to take my chances by hitting the standby/active button and hopefully it just switches to normal power automatically. Thanks.
