  • Sometimes the amber color does not mean you have to reset the time capsule. It's only happened to me twice over the past 3 1/2 years and both times there was an update to the software to the Time Capsule. When it is a software update, you have to go into Ariport Utiity and click on the time capsule to update.

  • I've just seen your post. I had this problem and it was solved with the help of Apple by doing a hard reset by holding a paperclip in the reset hole for about 5 seconds
