For some reason, today my NAS just turn itself off. When I try to start it, the blue start button blinks for like 10 seconds and turn itself off again. When I remove all the drives, it is up again but the power light bilnks indefinitely. I can access the web interface but there is nothing there to diagnose the problem, just a page saying that I need to put some disks. Is there anything I can do to better diagnose my problem? Thanks in advance

With all disks removed, if the blue light flashes for 20 minutes, it is a sign of board failure.

OTOH... if you see a page that says to install some disks, grab a spare disk (not from the drives you were using), insert it, and see if you can create a volume, and report back here...

The blue light in the start button did not flash more than 20 seconds without disks, it was the status light that keep blinking, sorry for the confusion.

Did you try to create a volume with a new disk? What happened?
I put a new disk and only that disk and the result is the same: the power button blinks for like 10-15 seconds and it turn itself off

Ok, reporting back since a while: it was a power supply failure. It wasn't easy to find a replacement but it went ok. Everything is back and running normally. It really scared me but was just that. Thanks all of you for your help.
