 The OK led solid red and the SFTY OK led solid green.
 The OK led solid green and the SFTY OK led solid red.

The controller may power up with no faults logged. When the controller does power up it may or may not have the application still loaded.
– Temporary Workarounds –
No temporary workaround has been identified. You may power cycle the controller until it powers up successfully, but on subsequent power cycles it may not power up correctly.
