You have fried the enclosure. Replacing it or the dc in is not an option. Ideally , you need to extract the drive and hope the surge did not make it past the bridge board. I would seek out a more sturdy enclosure, preferably aluminum for hear dissapation. Try mounting the drive internally in a desktop and finding out is condition before spending money on a new enclosure.

Usually you can smell the drive for any hint of "electrical burn" once its been extracted, or trace the extent of the damage in the enclosure.

My dell latitude d630 will power on when I push the button, but nothing happens. The screen illuminates a bit and that's it. What can be the problem?


what happens when you try to connect to an external monitor? you may have a bad back light power inverter. how old are your batteries? in some cases if the batter pack isn't holding a charge then it may put a load on the power supply.
if you connect an external monitor and it stays on then it is a bad back light inverter. if it does the same thing then you may have a power supply problem. i forgot to ask if the laptop has been dropped or fell off a table, chair, bed, or desk? how is the power plug that plugs into the laptop? you also may have bad power jack!
3 things that may be bad or defective:
1) power jack
2) inverter board (i'm thinking this your problem)
3) batteries or internal power supply
items 1 and 2 can be fixed, but if it is a battery(s) or bad internal power supply. replacement batteries are about $50 and up, replacement laptop mother board it may be cheaper to buy a new/used laptop. however, you would want to save your data on this laptop if you can or someone do it for you.
i have worked on Dell computers for 10 + years out of my own repair and custom shop.
oops almost forgot with the new hd tv's there is a "PC Input" on the back where you can connect your computer or laptop to!! so if the lcd screen doesn't work and you cannot afford a replacement back light inverter board($120) then spend $15 or less for a male plug to connect your laptop to your lcd hdtv .
but doing this you will loose portability unless replace the inverter board!

The power supply light comes on,but when i plug it the light goes out.how do i fix this problem .ty


Hello,
when the green light on the power supply goes off or starts flashing when you plug it into the LaCie drive, there is a failure at the level of the internal electronic components. Either only on the interface, or on both the interface and one/both of the hard drive.
Usually, replacing the interface would solve this, but before doing so make sure that the internal hard drives electronic boards do not have any failure else they will cook your new interface. It is advised to consult someone skilled in electronics to inspect the internal components.
Regards,

ILO 32" TV (4 yrs old) seems to have no power. The power light is out (not green or red). We have checked the power chord, etc and that's not the problem..


the problem goes beyond chords. most lightly its the internal power supply that failed, this part is build in such a way that its to much to repair. solution is to replace power supply

Maxtor personal storage 3200 - flashing green light.


Solution:
First, disconnect the power cable from the back of the external hard drive:
If the power supply LED continues to blink:
  1. Connect the power supply to a different outlet (or instead of connecting to a power strip, connect directly to an outlet in the wall).

  2. If the power supply continues to blink after changing outlets, this indicates that the power supply is defective and needs to be replaced.

  3. If the power supply stays solid, then reconnect to the external hard drive and see if the drive spins.

Wrong power supply used with a maxtor external hard drive


You could buy another drive with the same specs and replace the circut underneath the drive with the circut from the new drive, then try it in your new enclosure

F-17 neovo monitor stopped working. power light is flashing yellow


The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1 The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours, sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occurr suddenly are a blown capacitor on power board, the inverter board powering up backlight lamp has blown, or a fault on main lcd controller board.
check also the video cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

Check connectors, try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

Maxtor 3200 power supply problem


I plugged a HP laptop charger into the drive and all it did was flash, bought a new housing and no luck. Data recovery sites said that it sounded like hardware trouble and the recovery minimum is $800. I did some more searching and found a site called PCB Solutions that sells the circuit board. You have to provide all of the specs. for the drive. The cost was $39 and I received it in 4 days. I replaced the board and the drive worked and I recovered all of my data. The URL is:
