If you cannot access the NAS after Step 3, please do the following:

  1. Turn off the NAS.
  2. Take out all the hard disk drives.
  3. Restart the NAS.

You will hear a beep after pressing the power button, followed by 2 beeps 2 minutes later. If you cannot hear first beep, Please contact your local reseller or distributor for repair or replacement service.

If you cannot Hear the two beeps, and Qnapfinder couldnt find your NAS, the NAS Firmware is Damaged. To fix this problem, please follow “Qnap firmware Recovery / Reflash” Documents for your device model.

1 – Download Putty software;

2 – Plug in all of your HDD’s with right order while device is still working. Dont restart Qnap yet. Check if all HDD’s are alright and recognized by Qnap. If any of HDD doesn’t recognized or size seems “0″, plug out that HDD.
