Hi,

The Blue and Red lights generally indicate a harware failure. If the failure is power supply or enclosure you can simply solve the issue by taking your drive to a PC shop and having the techs there remove the hard drive inside it and move the hard drive into a new enclosure. Once in the new enclosure have them test it to see if it works. If it does buy the enclosure and be back to your business, if that fails you will need the help of a data recovery pro to retrieve your data(assuming there's anything worth saving). If this is the case, the transfer fails and you need your data back, reply with your location(Country, State and City) and I will be happy to direct you to an appropriate facility to have your data recovered.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

My indesit washing machine 12 hundred keeps flashing blue and red lights and won't do anything


Possible that the suspect could be the controller board, you can switch the machine off power for sometime, check the power outlet for the correct voltage. If not the front panel must be removed to check on the board and a possible fault of the processor or memory.

Headlight blue light is flashing and won't do anything else


If you hold down the power button (and keep holding!) while wearing the headphones, you will hear three beeps (keep holding! If you lift your finger, you have wait a moment to start over) followed after a moment by two beeps. If you do this while the headset is NOT on, it will enter the "discoverable" mode and the lights should flash red/blue red/blue. If you do this while the headset is on, the second set of beeps sounds a little different, and those tones mean the headset is turning off.

The "manual" (a single sheet of paper) for this device is a joke, and website technical support is nonexistent.

When I first purchased mine, despite the poor instructions, I was satisfied, due to the low price. But I've only had the device for less than a month, and I've only used it three times, and suddenly I can't get it to pair with my laptop or my phone, though it had worked find a couple of weeks ago, last time I used it.

Sometimes you get what you pay for, I guess. Disappointing.

Suddenly, my 500GB Seagate external hard drive couldn't mount on my iMac. It was working fine till yesterday. I connected them to the Mac USD port, and the light in the seagate is blinking... Any


I can only comment generically:

I would try to uninstall the drive on the OS. Then re-start the computer. After the re-start, connect the drive and see if the drive re-installs itself.

If the error persists, then the drive is indicating failure. To absolutely verify if it has failed, take the drive to a store where there are MAC computers and try the drive on one of their computers to see if it works.

A continuous flashing LED on most devices where the LED does not normally continuously flash is an indication of a failure of the device. Some devices will flash an error code when designed to do so, and if possible.

The front LED flashes red & blue when I turn it on. What does this mean?


LED Indicators - LaCie 2big Network
The LED indicators above the drive bays and the front LED indicate drive status and activity.
During Startup
  • Front LED – blinks red/blue until both disks are powered on, then turns solid blue.
  • Rear LEDs – blinks red/blue until corresponding disk is powered on, then turns solid blue.
NOTE: If the device is not able to initiate the boot process following disk startup, the front is solid red.
During Bootup
  • Front LED – solid blue
  • Rear LEDs – solid blue
NOTE: If a disk is failing, both the disk’s corresponding rear LED and the front LED will be solid red.
During RAID Synchronization
  • Front LED – solid red
  • Rear LEDs – The LED corresponding to the original disk will be blinking blue and the one being synchronized is blinking red
  • Once both disks are synchronized, their corresponding rear LED and the front LED will be solid blue.

LED light has gone out


Lights up blue when the Drive is powered on. Flashes red when reading or writing data. It was just stuck between color as it does not flash green,red-blue make green. Contact the company and see if it is under warranty, if not see if they will send you a new light, because
if it is not under warranty,it does not matter if you open it.

All that is inside is a hard drive, chip board. The light plugs onto the chip board same as a fan plugs onto a motherboard. I hope this helps you and it is under warranty,or at least they send you a new light if not.

Communication between hard drives


Flashing light on enclosures  usually means the drive is being read, written to, or mounting.

Not recognized on Mac


In my experience those enclosures are infamous for not having the most durable bridge boards. The bridge board is a chip that has a chipset on it which take the SATA or PATA connection and send it to the USB and or Firewire ports on the enclosure. If the drive is powered up, you should get a small red or orange light on the front. When connected to either mac or pc ( porsches are MS_DOS formatted out the box ), if it does not mount or does not appear in DISK UTILTY, then it is a high probability that the enclosure/bridge board has failed and the drive ( if not making grinding, buzzing, clicking or beeping sounds) will have to be extracted and placed into a more stable enclosure.

Blue power light is flashing red and the hard drive won't mount


Hi Vieve, The manual says nothing about flashing red and blue nor could I find anything of any real substance. Basically this thing is a box containing an IDE hard drive and some electronics that interfaces the drive with firewire, power distribution and a few other odds and ends. I suspect the board that contains the electronics may be damaged, however, its entirely possible that this may be some undocumented error that can be reset. I would try calling the vendors tech support, it?s at least worth a shot. If getting your data off is the concern it might be worth your time to buy another enclosure, install your drive and plug it into your Mac. There is a good chance your data is recoverable. Sorry I couldn?t get you a more definitive answer.
