Default HDx card has multiple RED Leds blinking?

Hi All,

7 flashing Red LEDs on my HDx when a session is loaded with DSP plugs?

I got the "Broken Fans AAE -1178 error" message earlier this week on my Mac Pro 5,1 machine.

I have ordered a new fan from Advanced Musical Electronics, set to arrive on Friday.

In the meantime I am not running Pro Tools and have installed Macs Fan Control and speed up all of my Mac Pros fans.

I ran Digitest and my card passed.

However, when I open a recent Pro Tools session, I see Red LEDs flashing in about 6 or 7 places under the HDx cards metal cover? Is this normal?

I usually have my Mac Pro closed up as I only opened it after I got the "AAE -1178 error".

If I close the session, all Red LEDs turn off except the one near the front of the HDx card next to the "normal pulsing Green LED."

Has anyone been down this road? Any clues what I'm in for? Will replacing the fan solve this issue?

I am on 2018.12 HD Ultimate with an active support plan.

Thanks in advance,

It's only R'n'R but I like it.
