Power ON/OFF Procedure

Connect the power supply to your device first and only then plug it into the wall outlet. The system starts up automatically as soon as you plug in the power supply. It takes about 1-2 minutes for the device to go online but the blue system LED will indicate when the system is ready.

To safely turn off the device, press and hold the power button for 3 seconds until the red LED starts flashing. The system will then shut down all services and about 20 seconds later, it will power down.

If for some reason the system is unresponsive, press and hold the power button for 6 seconds to forcefully shut down the system and cut off the power.

If the device is not in use for long periods of time, we recommend that you turn off the device and remove the power supply from the wall socket.

HDD Installation

Remove the screws on the bottom of the case and lift up the top of the enclosure. Install the hard drive in the HDD chassis and fasten the screws on the side to hold it in place.

Replace the top enclosure. Fasten the screws on the bottom of the case, place the rubber feet over the screws and stick them on the casing to cover the screws.
