Re: Burn circuits
The disk is probalby ok , it's probably just the power circuits for the USB/Firewire adapter that got fried, if need be you could liberate the disk and use directly, or you could use a different Disk adapter to connect it via USB/Firewire again.

Understanding that you lost your power adapter for the external device you can easily do the following:
1) Check the documentation of the device to confirm it is really 12V DC.
2) Check the amperage specified in the documentation (for example, 1.0 mA) ;
3) Check the polarity (normally indicated in the device, such as positive in the center pin, or otherwise).
4) Check the size of the connector.
5) with all the information at hand go to your local electronic supplier shop (such as RadioShack, or another) and request for a power adapter with those characteristics. Take the device with you to make sure the connector will fit correctly and that the polarity and other information do match
Note: make sure the new adapter has the same capacity (or a little bit higher) than the milliamps (mA) indicated in the documentation or the label at the device.
It sounds like you have one of four issues. Determining which is fairly easy. Eitheryou have the wrong power supply, your power supply is dead, the enclosure has a short or the hard drive inside has a short.
First, verify you have the correct power supply, just because it fits doesn't mean it's the correct one. Check the writing on the power supply for V or Volta and A or Amps. Typical drive power supplies range between 10-24V and .5-3.42A. The adapter will also have a polarity drawing showing positive + and negative - and showing which one is the inside and outside of the tip. Now check the wiring on the one touch device. If it's the same you have the correct adapter, move on to the next step. If not you have the wrong adapter, find the right one and re-test the device, if it works you're done, if not move onto the next steps.
Second, if you have a mulit meter try the following steps yourself, if not, take the drive and power supply into your local PC shop. Place the dial on the multi meter on DCV. Check the drawing on the power adapter, if the + is the center of the adapter, place the red tip in the hole in the middle of the tip, touch the black tip to the outside of the tip and check the voltage. If the voltage matches the writing +/-.5V the adapter is functioning, move onto replacing the enclosure, if not see if the shop has a replacement adapter and test with it, if they don't move onto replacing the enclosure. If they do have a working spare test the One Touch with their adapter and see if it works, if it does, buy the adapter, if it doesn't move onto replacing the enclosure.
Third, replacing the enclosure, assuming all the tests so far have failed to resolve the issue ask the technicians at your PC shop to transfer the One Touch's hard drive into a new enclosure and test it. If it works in the new enclosure buy it and you're done, if not you've now determined the failure is in the hard drive itself.
Fourth, If you've determined the hard drive is at fault, reply to me with you hard drive(not the One Touch), Make and Model # and your location (Country, State, City) and I can refer you to a nearby data recovery facility that can aid you in retrieving your files from the damaged drive.
I think so, As far as i understand, your pc is not powering on unless you dont plug in you hard drive right?Check wether it is ATA, or Serial ATA (SATA)?
THE problem is circuit, and i think you hard drive is JUNK!
(ATA)..1- Take a gd look at the drive, where you plug in the power cable, and make sure the 4 tubes are far enought.
2- Replace the IDE cable.
(SATA).. 0- Replace the cable.
How do you have it connected to your PC? USB or Firewire? try plugging it in to different slots or try plugging it in on another computer to further isolate the problem. some external drives requires power adapter to work so make sure that you're using the power adapter if it comes with the device. if not, there might be something wrong with the device specially if it was working before
Well Most Likely The Circuit Board Burnet Out Since Its 12V And When Plugged Into A 19V Supply It Will Burn Out Instantly Because It Over Charges The Circuits. So Its Not Possible To Repair Such Damage But You Can Take Out The Hard Drive And Plug IT Into A Desktop Computer And Use It At Home Or As An Online Hard Drive To Store Files
It sounds like the adapter more than the e-book.
If the adapter plugs into the e-book, remove it and buy another one with the same voltage and correct power orientation. The best way to do this is to take the old adapter with you to any shop that sells electrical equipment - even K-mart has them.
If it's one of the fixed adapters, it's best just to take it to a sparky and have them change the adapter for you, it's a 2 minute job.
I believe what happened is that when the wrong adapter was connected it damaged some of the electronics inside. Specifically I would guess some filtering capacitors. You would need to open it to fix it. If you need the data I would think that the drive inside would still work so you could take it out and get the data off of it. Otherwise I would see about sending it back for warranty replacement.
