Hi, we have two 24 port hubs all of a sudden all the LED's in one of the hub start blinking and PC's connected to that hub loses network connectivity after removing the uplnk cable the hub returns to normal once uplnk cable is connected then the problem starts. But if i switch off the hub and switch on the hub works perfectly after few hours/mins suddenly this problem reccurs. Pls help me how to solve this issue. I am going mad as the entire office stands still till the problem is addressed. as of now i use to switch off and switch on

Since it takes a power reset of one of the "hubs" to restore function I would consider replacing that unit.

If these are indeed "hubs" and not "switches" then what you describe sounds like a "broadcast storm".

I would replace both of the units if they are indeed hubs. Hubs are antiquated and outdated and a switch would prevent a broadcast storm.

From the sounds of it, your one device is definitely having hardware issues and needs replacing no matter if it's a hub or switch.
