You too are experiencing a design flaw of the power regulator circuit for the harddrive. If you need to get those files off, you will have to disassemble the unit and remove the harddrive. Then plug the IDE harddrive into your computer and it will recognize the harddrive. Then you could reuse the drive by reformatting to the proper OS and save $.
You can also disassemble and use a computer power supply to power the unit to get your files off. You could attmept to replace the flaw chip wih stronger type, but need to be excellent soldering SMT.

Hope this helps!

Hunter 44360 thermostat wiring


If you don't have the wiring information, go here: http://www.hunterfanhq.com/tools/sales/hunter/preseason/images/owners/42710.pdf and see page 10.  
If you're still having problems, go down to the furnace room and find the piece of equipment that you're wiring to.  See where the wires came from, transpose that to the information above.  Note: the wiring from the relay box should be 24 volts which is safe to handle.  Wiring inside the relay box may be 110 or more volts which is not!!!  Cut power before opening relay boxes.
As far as heater running continuously, be sure of your wiring.  You may have the gas relay lead and the fan lead reversed.  Determine if you've set the switch options for your type of heater correctly!!!  Do you hear the relay clicking in and out at or near the room temp when you change the setpoint?  If not, the unit may be defective.

Bad picture


Try changeing the image quality, is this a cheap around 30usd model?
Comment by Ekse, posted on Jun 12, 2008 Still image: 640 x 480 (high-resolution setting), or 320 x 240 (low-resolution); movie clips: 320 x 240

the thing is this a very cheap camera and the quality doesn't get any better than that. Comment by Ekse, posted on Jun 12, 2008 I can find this camera for even 20 dollars, you have a cheap knock off. You can't get a quality camera for this cheap. Comment by Ekse, posted on Jun 12, 2008 but if you change the setting to high resolution 640x480 which by the way still is very bad. it should look a little better.
