B1200i battery replaced, still orange light

#1

I have an old B1200i that was sitting around not being used, so I fired it up and the controller light on the back remains orange (not green). I checked the voltage on the battery and got 0. I replaced the Li-ion Samsung ICR18650-24P but still the same orange light and after it appears to boot I don’t see it on the network. Any information on the controller light status? All others are green.

Slot change solved the dashboard, got that connected so good progress. Now the “Expander Card” is missing, so no drives detected, even though they are plugged in. Not sure if those right slots are usable?
