  • liamjorge Oct 31, 2008

    The external hard drive does not show up on my PC, the LED on the side of the hard drive (packard bell, store & save unit) constantly flashes between red and green?? Have re-booted PC and tried powering down / up hard drive with no success

  • liamjorge Oct 31, 2008

    Thanks, thought about trying it on a different computer but the LED performs same function when USB disconnected so thought it must be unit itself but will give it a go

Try unplugging pc power cord for five minutes.

If problem persists test the unit on a different computer.

If the unit is faulty, the hard drive can still be fine.

Take apart the hard disk enclosure and see if the hard disk cable is disconnected.

If the caddy is defective, buy a new hard drive caddy enclosure at any computer shop and mount the hard disk in the new caddy.

    That would indicate a hardware problem with the external drive, I suggest you contact packard bell if you have warranty on the drive to get it repaired.



    few things you can try

    -Try another computer

    -Try another usb port



    if this external harddrive has a power adapter, which plugs into the wall, its possible that the adapter is failing and not giving the hard drive enough power, that has happened to me a few times. To fix that problem you would need to replace the power adapter.



    I don't know what kind of drive you got there, the model number or anything else you can find on the harddrive would be helpful.



    Thanks,

    Ekse

The solution is simple: If you can access the internet with your Pentium 3

Nissan pulsar 1987 n13 the ECM light came one and the car cut out and won't start again and I need to know where the ECM is


Hi, the computer is under the passenger's seat. Code extraction procedure is pasted below.


READING CODES Modes will not switch while the engine is running. The ECM automatically switches to MODE I when the ignition is switchedOFF.
1984-90 Vehicles With Dual LED System
The self-diagnostic system has 5 modes. To switch modes, switch the ignition ON and use a screwdriver to turn the mode select switch through the access port on the ECM. The inspection lights will begin to flash. When the desired mode has been entered, turn the screwdriver fully counterclockwise. The red LED and green LED perform different functions in different modes.
Mode I-
This is the normal vehicle operating mode. The green LED will indicate loop status. If the green LED is not blinking when the engine is running, the vehicle is in open loop, or the HO 2 S, O 2 S, or sensor circuit has a malfunction. If the green LED is blinking, the vehicle is in closed loop. If a malfunction takes place, the red LED and the MIL will glow, indicating a malfunction has occurred.
Mode II-
Both the red LED and green LED are used to monitor mixture ratio feedback control. The green LED will function as described in MODE I. If vehicle is in open loop, the red LED and green LED will remain on or off. In order for results to be valid, vehicle must be in closed loop. In closed loop, the red LED remains off if the system is running rich, comes on if the system is running lean, and blinks at the same time with the green LED if system is within 5% of the exact air/fuel ratio.
Mode III
-When this mode is accessed, the codes stored in the ECM's memory will be flashed by the green LED and red LED on the side of the ECM. The red LED will light first. This is the first digit of the trouble code; the green LED will flash next, showing the second digit of the code. For example: 2 flashes of the red LED followed by 1 flash of the green LED corresponds to Code 21.
Mode IV-
This mode is used for checking the throttle plate (TP) switch, starter, and vehicle speed switch status. When the TP switch or starter switch is activated, the red LED will briefly flash as the status changes. For VSS status, the green LED will remain off when vehicle speed is less than 12 mph (19 km/h) and come on when vehicle speed is greater than 12 mph (19 km/h).
Mode V-
This mode represents a real-time diagnostic test of the crank angle sensor, ignition signal and the mass airflow signal. The malfunction code will be displayed only when the malfunction occurs and will not be stored in memory. The output code will appear as a single or short string of pulses. Count the number of pulses for the malfunction code.



1 pulse-CMP sensor signal lost or noise in signal 2 pulses-MAF Sensor signal abnormal 3 pulses-Fuel pump circuit shorted or open 4 pulses-Ignition signal lost

Hi, I have new BB9700 and when I put it on charge first time there was red light on constantly and green light flashing after a little while green light is also on constantly why is that


Within the menu of the BlackBerry, one can set up the red, green and indeed blue led to do various functions, for instance, my BlackBerry used to have a green led on permanently to show that it was receiving data from the transmitters.
Select what function you require it to do. When you have sussed out how to adjust it, you may find it a usefull function.

External hard drive not working properly


I can only assume that from the grinding sound that your Hard drive is about to completely die. One option would be to open the case and install it into your computer as an internal drive, however that may or may not work as different types of interfaces are not supported on all motherboards. If you are not familiar with PC repair, I would advise you to avoid this route and seek help from a person who does. Some companies can recover data from dead drives, drawback is that they can charge upwards of $1000 per GB of data recovered. Either way that drive needs to be replaced.

Maxoptix t5-2600 Will not eject MO Disk


As far as I know the green led means "write" & red led means "read". Don't increase time out on the SCSI card . If you press eject button wait 10 secs. If no response I think your MO drive having some problem . Or your jumper setting doesn't right.
I using t5-2600 on SunOS so I'm not exactly know what's problem on your drive. But Maxoptix MO drive very durable. I bought from ebay and manufacture date were 1999 . Oh my god . Just almost 10 years . And working good.

Unrecognised file format


Has the card been out the camaera and into a computer in the mean time? Or have you loaded back up stuff from the computer? If you do not work this way- take the card to a processing store and ask for the images to be burned to disk while you wait - see what they say about the picture you cant assess in the camera.other wise it mean saving those you can and formatting the card in the camera. Or if you have an access to a PC and recovery software see what can be pulled out . for suitabler software to do this try www.pcinspector.com or www.konvar.com
