What does it mean when my viasat unit is red? It's usually white (no signal) or blue, this is the first time I've seen it red.

On the viasat unit in the house, there is a colored circle on it that tells me (blue) internet is working (white) not working-it's usually during heavy cloud cover/thunderstorms. It's lit up red right now and I'm using my phone as a hot spot to write this.

Red is not good.
First power down for 5 minutes then power up again

If after a few minutes it hasn't progressed past red, power down again
This time remove the coax cable & power up modem again

If it will progress past red to white, it suggests there is a dead short in coax somewhere or the TRIA on the dish has a terminal issue
