HyperDeck studio record light blinking

I have 6 hyperdecks, and one of the decks always has a blinking record light. I have not found anything in the documentation that says what this means. Does anyone know what a blinking record light means, and if there is any adverse effect on the recorded video?

Hi John,

A blinking record light indicates that a frame was dropped and that the recording will have stopped. This will be because the SSD you are recording to cannot keep up with the data rate. If the disk is different to those in the other recorders, that particular model might not be able to write fast enough for the HyperDeck. If it is the same model it's quite possible that there's a problem with the disk.

For more information on SSDs please see the HyperDeck SSD support note.
