Eagle Tech Consus Power adapter requirements


IF you have the Eagle Consus T ET-CSTSIU2-BK you must mean one of these (pictured). Check the exact model number of the units in the videos compared to the one you have. 3.5" hard drives need 0V (ground, earth), +5V and +12V which may be on the pins in a multipin connector in some external adapters or less commonly provided internally a single from dc or even ac supply. Further, your supply connector may not have multipins but be a multi-concentric ring type with matching socket (similar to a stereo plug). I suggest you try (discussing the matter with) Eagle support http://www.eagletechusa.com/customer-support/ or as outside chance buying another psu of the correct type from Amazon Newegg (who have sold out of this product) or ebay for example.

Macally G-S350SUA power supply


  • I have the same Macally hard drive enclosure and I misplaced my power supply also. I used an old IBM Thinkpad power supply. These are common and cheap. The Macally enclosure states 12V DC input, and the Thinkpad PS is rated at 16V but it works fine. The plug and polarity are correct.

Will not power on


WELCOME TO FIX YA


i hope you didn't dropped it cause dropping it may cause to malfunction or no function at all
here are some steps you might follow if its not broken it may work
1. first of all check the adapter if it says Input:100V-240V~50/60Hz Output:5V/2A; 12V/2A ,
if you have the original adapter check for the values
2. if it doesn't powers your external drive then check for a adapter of same inputs and outputs
see if it works with another adapter,go to a shop and ask someone that you want to check ,
if it works then you have to buy it.cause our adapter is out.

if it doesn't your final procedure should be this

1. install driver from here
2. install it .and see if it detects the drive works.

now if it doesn't help ignore this post .cause i don't want to reffer you to a service center,cause i consider this as a help to you.

Best Regards
do tell me that how did you resolved the matter ....!??

Nothing happens when I plug this in. I've tried eSATA and USB, both with the power adapter. The blue light comes on but nothing else. The hard drive works in other enclosures so I know that isn't the...


Your assumptions are leading in the right direction.
  • The blue light would just be denoting power to the device the red light would denote drive activity. The limitation on this enclosure is that its white papers states a "Hard Drive Compatibility: 320GB HDD capacity", but I have seen people use a 500GB drive that seemed to work. If your using a drive larger then 320GB this may be an issue.
  • The enclosure HDD combo is Plug-N-Play via USB so this would mean drivers most likely are not the issue. I don't believe drivers are even packaged with the device which would mean they use protocol standard drivers from the OS.
  • Make sure that you are not hooking the USB up to a external USB hub (especially a bus-powered one) while trouble shooting as it may not provide enough power. Connect the drive up to system USB controller directly while trouble shooting.
  • I believe this device has the ability to hook up 2 USB cables at the same time for extra power (mainly while using the eSATA connection). Try hooking up the USB mini-B connector and the USB +5VDC connector and then hooking both up to the system on two different USB ports. This should then correct the possibility that your drive may not be getting enough power.
  • Lastly, the enclosure could have a faulty IC on the PCB. Exchanging it would provide the answer for that.
Hope this was helpful. Thanks for visiting FixYa.com

Sabrent ECS-U35K Hard Drive Enclosure AC Adapter repair


I would sure enjoy helping you figure your problem. I've taken Electronic courses in the Navy and in college, so this shouldn't be too hard.
As far as the capacitor goes, manufacturers make several different products from the same PCB layout, just some don't have all the components. Once I see where the capacitor should be I can tell you if its necessary or not.
For the fuse, it sounds like there is a short somewhere further in the circuitry. Rather surprised it blew right off the bat, but people and machine alike can make mistakes when building things. I fixed a laptop power supply where they didn't even solder the source resistor for the switcher.
Upload your pictures, and we shall we what we can do with it!

Where do I buy a spare power adapter pa-225


For those who run across this situation, don't add to the land fill if you can fix it. The majority of the problems with the PA-225 and 226's, is the DC plug connector that connects to the MX-1. That plug's connections are 4 pins and one thru-hole terminal that's meant for the center wire, ground line connected to the plugs metal jacket, which is the ground for both 5 and 12 volt lines. The problem is that during assembly, they miss getting the wire through the eyelet of the ground terminal and solder it anyway, which usually creates an intermittent or permanent disconnection later. Although this can happen for the pins, the main culprit is this ground connection. When this becomes disconnected, the LED will Blink indicating a problem. Normally the LED is a solid orange. The plug's molding can be cut (spit in half) and slid back to expose the plugs ground terminal. The inside molding can be cut/chipped away in if need be to expose the ground line. You might need a really good mag lens to show the fault. I took some pictures and created a pdf on what I found but haven't posted any where. If all else fails, you can order one from Antec. However, beware that the connector used on the replacements will most likely not be the same as the originals. So, if your supply is really DEAD, keep it for the 4 pin male connector, and check out this Antec Online Store for their replacement. Also be aware that I've discovered that the original supplies, two of the pins are used as one 12v supply, and the other two pins are the 5 volt supply with the plugs metal jacket as the ground for both. The original supply's labeling is incorrectly pictures as each pin pair being both positive and negative, with the metal jacket not connected. Make sure that this your next supply does not ground to any of these pins, only to the jacket. The motherboard inside the MX1 connects each pin pair together for a positive terminal only, therefore, if you get a supply incorrectly matching, you can toast a new supply. If you look at the male connector from the original supply with the plastic key "top". The left pin pair is 12VDC, and the right pair is 5VDC with the metal jacket as ground for both. Good luck.

Wiring separated from 9 pin female Rs-232c serial adapter


strip off an inch on both ends of the wiring you are trying to connect. Connect each wire with the same color. Example if the 9 pin side wire is yellow/blue then the other end needing to be connected will need to be yellow/blue. Twist them together and use a terminal splicer to fastened and protect them from touching each other. Do this until all wires are spliced together color for color.

Flashing "F" on front of drive slot


The front panel display contains seven (7) lights which provide the following information: ? Power-On - Steady green glow indicates that power is being supplied to the Data Silo chassis. ? Temperature Warning - Flashing red indicates that internal operating temperature has reached 43? C (109° F). ? Blower 1 or 2 Failure - Flashing red indicates a blower has failed. ? Power Supply 2 Failure - Flashing red indicates second power supply has failed. ? Power Supply 1 Failure - Flashing red indicates first power supply has failed. ? Mute - When switch is depressed, a steady yellow glow indicates the audible warning sounds have been disabled. Depress switch again to enable sounds. ? Reset - Depress switch to reset chassis and clear any error conditions. The specs on the DS550 do not say anything about an F at all? Did you put the correct model number?
