    When i plug in the switch RPS is amber and so is 3,7,11,15,19,23 on
    the console it just puts up a ".y" and hangs there. The thing is we
    have 3 that do the same thing. The other one thought will sometimes
    get half ports amber and half ports green.

    Anyone have any thoughts on why this is happening?

    Thanks for the help

    The switches are failing the power-on self test. Call Cisco.
    Do you get anything useful from the console port during boot? As I
    recall, there was an issue with the 3500 series having bad power
    supply caps that caused intermittent port errors. Perhaps if they get
    really bad, the switch fails to post properly.
