By the Wall Street Journal's account:

The crew methodically tried to respond to the warnings, according to people familiar with the probe, but apparently had difficulty sorting out the warning messages, chimes and other cues while also keeping close track of essential displays showing engine power and aircraft trajectory.
Sensory overload?

Question: How long would it take the captain at rest in the module -- and perhaps sensing that something is wrong around 2:10 or 2:11 -- to get to the cockpit, have a crew member open the secured door, and step inside?

At that point, at 2:12?, 2:13?, if the FOs are simultaneously trying to explain to him what is happening and fly the plane, is his appearance more hindrance than help?
