Dell r720 Amber LCD light on the front panel, but no errors reported

Hi Guys,

basically this server is fully functioning and I cant see why it is amber?

Running the latest BIOS, the logs are clear. The amber light isn't flashing its just amber all the time.

All of them are exactly the same, running off SD cards (no errors) and only this host has  an amber LCD?

Any ideas?

HI

Screen
The LCD front panel displays user-configurable information about the system. The screen displays  system information and error messages, depending on the condition of the system.

The LCD backlight will be blue during normal operating conditions and only turns amber if there is  an error condition.
The LCD backlight will be off when the system is in standby mode, but it can be turned on by pressing any of the buttons on the LCD front panel.
However, the LCD backlight will remain off if LCD messaging is turned off; this can be done via the  web-based graphical interface, IPMITOOL, Open Manage System Administrator, or a command line tool such as RACADM.
 

The rear System ID button contains two LEDs; one is blue and the other is amber.
