Turbotax says my Employer HSA contribution on w2 is wrong

My employer contributed $600 to my HSA and I contributed the rest of $3050. box 12 code W on my w2 is $3650, but Turbox says "We found something wrong" and ask if some of my HSA went to my spouse. (No, it didn't) but I don't understand why turbotax says it's wrong since the limit is $3650.

Just checking. Box 12 has W 3650 and you didn’t enter your 3050 anywhere in the program,  right?

Turbotax says my Employer HSA contribution on w2 is wrong

"Turbox (sic) says "We found something wrong""

 

As Bsch4477 says, on the face of it, a code W value of $3,650 for a Self-only HDHP policy is OK. And the message "ask if some of my HSA went to my spouse" is asked of every married taxpayer who has a code W on their W-2, so this message does not imply that there is something wrong with what you entered.

 

Where in the interview did TurboTax tell you this ("wrong")? Was it is the federal Review? In the W-2 interview? What was the context of this message? And was this the exact wording? I don't recall seeing this message in the context of an HSA.
