Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

I think that's the model. Power cable is missing. Can I use another?

Somehow I am missing the power cable to My Book. I suspect that my son took it thinking it was a power cable for one of his games. Can I use any another power cable??

    Unfortunately, I can't answer that. All I can say is that I have a My Book and the power cable is missing. There is not much on the sticker on the device but a bunch of numbers. I was wondering if I could use a dual voltage power cable (from PSP) on it. We live overseas and our voltage is 220v.

Photos I took are now missing when I attempt to review them. The screen says "no images". I don't think I erased them, however, I was reviewing my canon instruction book and experimenting with my camera....


If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.

Missing Parts


I think I can help. I am now using my son's juicer he didn't want & have my old one & happy to break it up for parts. It is a JE 90 J so I assume the fitting would be the same. You are welcome to ring me on 0408 352 211 for further enquiries. Cheers Kas

Ballast Verification Process
1. Short out door switch (SP001)
2. Apply AC power and wait till DM module boots
3. Press power switch and observe spark gap on ballast
4. If spark gap arcs, suspect Lamp. If color wheel starts but ballast won’t strike
lamp, go to next step.
5. Measure BP252 on AC IN CBA for +300Vdc. If missing check door switch, cable
from AC IN CBA to switch and AC IN PCB. If correct go to next step.
6. Monitor pin 2 of BT251 for Ballast ON command from Light Engine. If present
suspect Ballast. If missing suspect Light Engine. Pin 5 of BT251 starts at 3.3V
after power switch is pressed and drops to .18V when the Light Engine sends the
start command. No change on pin 5 indicates Light Engine is suspect, change
on pin 5 with no ballast start, ballast is suspect.

Note: Lamp may arc but not start. Pin 5 of BT251 is "LAMP LIT" and goes to 1.48V
when lamp is lit. If ballast strikes lamp but lamp won’t stay lit, suspect Lamp.

My Canon Pixma IP3000 died? It is over two years old, is this the lifespan?


I would suspect the low voltage power supply has failed.
It is possible the on/off switch went bad.

Have you tried disconnecting the power from the wall? Or power cycling your entire entertainment center? Possibly even check to make sure the VGA cable (or any other cable) didn't somehow come looose?
