Sonicwall TZ105 Blinking power light

I have a Sonicwall TZ105 that won't power on. I had another Sonicwall that was dead and I tried the power adapter and all I get is a Blinking power light (Blue).

If the power light is blinking you have a bricked unit.  Time to buy another one.

The only thing you can try is to hold the reset button down for at least 15 seconds with the unit unplugged and try again.

If you still have a blinking light you need to get a new unit.

Junk... It's only 14 months old.

Possible.  Sonicwall usually makes pretty good stuff.  It's possible it got taken out by a power surge.

Make sure your equipment is protected by UPS units and not just "surge protectors".

Shoot.  Guess you got a bad unit.  Unfortunate but it does happen.
