It talks about flashes, not sounds. The SCSI interface manual has
corresponding error codes up to a point.
NO flashes or peeps means NO Errors!
1 flash = Microprocessor / Internal Memory Test failure.
2 flashes = Microprocessor Checksum Test failure.
3 flashes = Controller Chip Test failure.
4 flashes = Controller Program RAM failure.
5 flashes = Data buffer RAM test failure.
6 flashes = Spindle Speed Test failure.
The SCSI manual Sense Keys says 47 = SCSI interface parity error.
Time to throw in the towel?
