Thanks Russ for your response.
Finally found time to do more test on this thread.
I uninstalled DAHDI-complete and installed an older DAHDI version 2.4.1
It worked!

Both READMEs said Digium TE420: PCI-Express quad-port T1/E1/J1 should work.
But it seems that 5th gen TE420 (see below) only works with older DAHDI version.

04:08.0 Communication controller: Digium, Inc. Wildcard TE420 quad-span T1/E1/J1 card 3.3V (PCI-Express) (5th gen) (rev 02)

Blinking red led is normal for spans which have been configured, but are receiving no signal.
I might try plugging up a physical loopback plug to the port to rule out a bad incoming signal.

This looks like a normal startup for mixed-mode configuration with nothing connected to the ports. I might try setting all spans to T1 or all spans to E1 and plugging one or the other back up to test the connections.
