Question about Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 (U01E200) 200 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

No Power I've connected everything correctly and triple checked all connections. My husband checked that there was power from the outlet to the power cord with an aenometer (not sure if that is spelled correctly), there is power to the cord but the hard drive is not turning on. My computer will not recognize it being plugged into the usb port and the little green light on the external hard drive will not turn on. Not sure what else to try. Any suggestions or help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Wiring outdoor motion lights (with 14/2) to a nearby outlet (possibly 12/2)that has power. After wiring into outlet and turn on breaker, I lose power, but don't trip the breaker?

First take a cord and hook it to the motion lite and make shure it works .Remember that it only will work at night or dark area and you have to have lights in the fixture to make the contact.and make shure the plug is not on a dimmer or the wires are flipped. WHT. To the common side and black to the darker side and it has to be grounded .exspeacily if it is a led fixture.

I have an older ibm thinkpad laptop, Tried to add memory, a new fan The power and fan and hard drive started , then powers down

Hi There,
Make sure all of your connections are tight, and that the RAM, HD connector, and anything else you've touched is seated correctly.
If you tried to put more RAM in than the computer will allow, it will not turn on. If you've unclipped a wire somewhere or your RAM isn't seated correctly, it will malfunction.
Check and then double check everything.

I hooked up a 20amp circuit breaker to a 15amp recp. then to a 20amp gfci but my outlet tester reads open nutral. what's wrong?

You've lost a neutral connection at: one of the terminals somewhere; inside the outlet; broken strap between the neutral pads on the standard outlet; or the tester is providing an erroneous indication.

Does it read OK on the BOTH receptacles of the first outlet? Check the terminals that provide output on the first outlet and the LINE terminals of the GFCI . Bad at the first outlet? Check the input on the first outlet. Bad? Check splices between outlet and service panel and neutral connection at neutral bus bar inside panel. OK? Check the input to the GFCI - make sure on LINE terminals and proper polarity is observed.

Double check the line and load terminal screws of the GFCI outlet. Make sure that the power coming into the GFCI is connected to the LINE terminals. Be sure to connect the HOT and NEUTRAL wires to the proper LINE terminals. Neutral conductor (white) connects to the silver colored screws and hot (black or red) connects to the gold colored LINE screws. If you are sending power out to supply additional loads that are to be GFCI protected, the rules above apply - but connect to the LOAD screws.

My x3350 will not power up could it be the mains lead/AC adaptor

Please go through the following checklist:
  • Make sure the power cord is plugged in securely and directly to the power outlet. Power surge protectors can draw power away from the printer.
  • Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet and the back of the printer and then reconnect it.
  • If there is access to a voltmeter, test the power supply to ensure that it registering the correct amount of voltage (most Lexmark printers have a 30Volt output).
  • Make sure the correct power supply is connected to the printer.

There's a flashing green and red light when my car is on and the sub attached to the amp is making a heartbeat like noise when the light goes green and then the light goes red right away. everything is...

Check the wires for short circuiting at the car body or speaker wires. Triple check really everything.
Make sure the connectors are 100% connected to the wires. There maybe some resitance if the amp isn't getting enough power from the battery.

I moved my home office desk a few days ago. I properly powered down my computer and unplugged everything. When I reconnected everything, the computer won't power up.

1 - Make sure you have power to the outlet you plugged the computer into. 2 - Make sure all of the cables plugged into the back of the computer are firmly seated / attached.
3 - Check that the switch on the back of the computer (usually quite near the power cord) is turned on.

Hello Seally,
There are 4 options available.
1. Make sure you are connecting the printer directly to the wall outlet. (Not to a surge protector or a multiple connector).
2. Check with the power adapter (power module) that connects the printer to the wall outlet. If there is an LED on the Power adapter, make sure it is glowing, and if LED not present, please switch on the power and see if the power module warms up.
3. Check the cable from the power adapter to the printer.
4. In some cases, you may also try connecting the printer to some other power outlet. (In case you suspect the wall outlet as the culprit).

If all the above are fine, you need to check up with the printer (It may require a service from a technicial or you may replace it if the printer is still in warranty)
