Have you checked the SD card? That may be caused by corrupted file system on the SD card. I ran into similar and fixed it by ejecting and inserting the SD card again, last time.

Hey all,

Has anyone come across the following reaction when powering up a Pixhawk?

Essentially, a solid red main LED and music.  It's not in the standard LED characteristics.


Edit: This is a brand new Pixhawk, was tested and was working.  Running Rover 2.47.  Also, attached file is not corrupt, but will need to be played in something like VLC.

Edit: There is also a repetitive ticking sound coming from the buzzer.
