    No, that wasmnt the problem, it was ventilated, nothing near it.

Poor ventilation may cause it.

Only two of the bubs seem to be working (#5 and 6).


well, io-gear is at it again I see. They have always had a poor quality record, and I see that it has got you now as well.

What has happened is that part of the the hub's circuits have burnt out. It might be something as simple as a resistor, or it could be an i.c. logic chip. For the cost, I would just get a new one. they only run about 20-30 bucks for a good one, and they come with a warranty

Hello, I have a Belkin 2.0 USB 7-Port Hub, and having trouble with it. When i plug it into my computer, nothing happens, there is no power light and ultimately it seems as though the device is dead. ...


You first need a CAT 5 cable to go to where your internet connection is, such as a modem or another router to your hub. Then you plug another CAT 5 from the hub to your PC. You need to feed internet to the hub then your pc will recieve a connection from the hub. And of course the hub does need power. Hope that's what you were asking.

I have a Q-Stor 7 port USB hub, Model QU2RCT7. I


I don't have the original power supply for my QU2RCT7 either, but most hubs use a 5v DC power adapter, typically with a 2A. (2 amp) rating. I'm using such an adapter with my QU2RCT7 and it works fine. Make sure the adapter you select is tip-positive (ie, the "+" terminal is the "tip," or center, of the connector).

Car Fire


you very well could have had a neg cable touching a positive cable which would have burnt it up or a small gas leak which led up to this.

Yam caught fire in microwave


If you have given the microwave enough time to cool off and it still does not work then I would suggest that you would need a new one, as the circuit board may be fried that connects the control panel.

Overheating


We had a GE 7 port usb port and it overheated and melted----thank goodness I got up when I did or the house would have caught on fire. The only thing we had connected to the usb port was a APC battery backup unit. Any reason why the usb port overheated?
It was pugged into the battery backup unit and I am hesitant to rehook the computer up to the battery backup unit and also will not by another GE usb hub again and whatever hub we do use, I will not plug it into an outlet!
the computer was downstairs and I noticed the odor of electrical burning smell upstairs---the unit was bought nov 25, 2007 and we returned it to BJ'S for a refund today-----I do not reccomend this product to anyone.

I HAVE PRACTICALLY THE SAME PROBLEM AS THE NO.1 POST ON THIS P I HAVE THIS GE JASCO 4- PORT USB HUB, AND ITS GIVEN ME A BUNCH OF **** EVER SINCE I GOT IT . THE NUMBER ONE PORT ( THE ONE BEING CLOSEST TO THE PC ) WORKS AND WILL LET A DEVICE WORK THRU IT. BUT THE OTHER 3 PORTS ARE TOUCH AND GO. T SEEMS TO HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE POWER USAGE OF THE DEVICE YOUR PLUGGING INTO IT. PORTS 2-4 ARE TOUCH AND GO THE WORK SOMETIMES IF i USE A LITTLE 256KBS FLASH DRIVE. BUT i TRIED PLUGGING IN A NUMBER OF EXTERNAL DRIVES AND A PRINTER INTO ALL THE PORTS AND NTHING WORKED. AND THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE THE PC RECOGNIZING THE DEVICE , IVE HAD IT FOR MONTHS AND IT STILL HASNT NOT HAD ANY UPDATES COME THRU THAT HAD ANY TYPE OF DRIVERS OR IT. I WENT TO THE GE SITE FIRST AND FOUND THE HUB BY SEARCH AND THERE WERE SEVERAL VERY SIMILAR DEVICES ALMOST MIROR IMAGES OF THIS PRODUCT. AND I COULD NOT GET ANY DECENT SUPPORT WITHOUT PAY SOMETHING LIKE 2 U.S $ . I DONT KNOW IF IT WAS PER INCIDENT OR MINUTE AT THAT POINT I CLOSED THE SITE. NO WAY I AM PAYING FOR SUPORT ON A USB HUB. SO i FOUND THIS SITE THRU GOOGLE AND LOOK HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD PROBLEM WITH IT AND ALOT OF THE TEMP. RELATED AND NEARLY CAUSING FORES. MINE ALSO RAN HOT AS HADES. , IM SORRY BUT IT SEEMS TO BE A LITTLE MUCH TRANSFORMER FOR THE DEVICE. IM GOING TO TRY USING THE DRIVER POSTED ON THE PREVIOUS PAGE , AND IF IT DOESNT WORK AND LET MY PC RECOGNIZE IT ITS GOING TO GET A REAL NICE REVIEW IN MY COLUMN . AND THROWN AWAY.
