I hate to give you bad news, but every time I've had a switch behave like that, it has been a hardware failure.

Did you do anything like try and upgrade the firmware before having this problem?

No, it was on stack mode with 2 other summit 400, when we close the colo we just turn them off and move to our office, Sold the other two and now I wan to use this switch and it gives that error. I also see on the back that both stack lights are stady on green. I have also try upload image using xmodem upload and it just get stuck as well, it never finish. When I go to bootrom and press h for help all that works. Hopefully is not a hardware failure.

If you're seeing this issue as well, it is very likely some type of hardware failure.  The S400 is quite old at this point, at least 10 years for most of them.
