I have a switch "FWS648G-POE" which one of the ports when I connect a computer that takes the IP error (169.xxx.xxx.xxx) and light switch port stays on with no sign of activity. That switch is in production with other terminals but I take care to erase all configuration on that port to rule out errors. Rebooting the switch port works but if I disconnect and re-plug, returns to the same state.
Until two days ago, it worked smoothly and no change in the switch.

Suggest you test the port via connecting a notebook directly to the port in question with a different ethernet cable. If this works then look for a cabling fault or cable distance (if it is a very long run then try dropping the speed to 100M on the port and the end station).
