This fault code seems to be very common on this unit (search for "HTC Vive Base Unit Blinking Red" and you'll see issues from 2017 ... many of which occur immediately AFTER a firmware update).
I can send it to HTC, but they aren't promising anything (and suggest that it is at least 3wks of repair time from the time they receive it ... or about a month in total factoring in shipping time). Also, I have to pay to ship the 6wk old defective unit back to them.
This is after buying the HTC Vive Pro for a flight simulator, where there was no indication that a base station was even required (much less the hand controllers). BE AWARE ... at LEAST one base station is ABSOLUTELY required for the premium $800 - $1000 Vive Pro to work. Also ... much of the software requires the handsets too.
The HTC Vive system is NOT worth the money. I'm $2000 into the whole setup now, just to make my initial $1000 investment in the Vive Pro work at all, and it seems my brother with a $400 Oculus (for the COMPLETE system) is having no issues at all.

The conditions that led me to ordering this were kind of silly, though. One of my base stations was no longer tracking correctly, and debugging the hardware, fiddling with the mounts and angles, and removing other light sources from the room did nothing to help. So I sent it to the HTC repair center, but now I don't know when to expect it back, so ended up just ordering another one from here to keep things moving. Kind of annoyed by that, but whatever.
Imagine my surprise when hooking up the replacement, it was having the same tracking issues. I eventually figured out that there was an environmental factor I hadn't been considering: some framed pictures were put on the wall near the play area recently, and their reflective plexiglass was seriously messing with the invisible lasers that the base stations use. After they were removed from the area, everything worked fine. If you're having tracking issues, consider looking for potentially reflective surfaces rather than jumping to the wrong conclusion like I did, and that includes anything, not just mirrors.
