Amber Light on Back

I have a B800fs, but it doesn’t appear I can post in that forum. I have a green power light on the front, no lights on the drives, and an amber light near the switch on the back. I have searched all over to find out what the amber light means, but it’s not booting up. Has a loud buzz off and on, so it’s clearly finally tanked.

I want to get it operational so i can move the data to an 810. Is it by chance as simple as pulling the drives and putting them in the same order into an 810? I’m worried about doing that, so any suggestions on what I can look for to repair the 800 in order to transfer the data off?

Thanks!

According to the migration chart, your only option is moving to another B800fs.
