Synology NAS doesn't work, Blue light blinking. Can't reach Synology support

Dear Sir/Madam

The problem is that the Synology NAS doesn't startup and there's only a blue light blinking.
Any ideas on how to fix this? We think the motherboard is broken.
Model is 415 plus

I really appreciate any help you can provide,

Marcos Santo

No the DSM assistant doesn't find anything, reset button doesn't do anything (no beep when holding it). We've created a ticket and today we'll get a response, but I think the motherboard is broken.

Thanks for responding once again, We got a reaction from Synology and they confirmed the motherboard is broken. We still got warrenty so with a RMA it will be done.
