    Also have Maxtor 3200 EHD that is no longer recognized as a drive. USB detects the case correctly but apparently the disk is not spinning as it never mounts or recognizes as a disk drive. Evil or not I would really really like to get the data (photos) off this disk (this was my backup disk so those internal files I can lose; I know now to backup EHD to Internal HDD somewhere but these files do not have such a backup).



    I can't really afford $700 for the recovery fee that I was quoted.

Try the manufacturer's web-site: http://www.MAXTOR.com and see if their E-commerce site offers that part-number.
Or, given the part-number on the power-supply, do a search on eBay -- you'll probably find third-party "compatible" power-supplies.

What is your operating system? Have you tried to force install this hardware? I need to know this before I can begin to troubleshoot.

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.
