Plexwriter 12/10/32S dead?

Even when not connected to SCSI bus, all four LEDs flash when unit is powered up, and tray won't open.

Is it fixable?

Maybe there's a worn belt inside that keep on turning the motor and indicating an error through the four LEDs. it may need a repair, and in case of worn belt, replace the belt.

My computer doesn't recognize my optical drive within the BIOS or windows (HL-DT-STDVDRAM GT31N ATA Device ) in windows7


Hello,

If BIOS won't detect the Optical Drive, try reseating the SATA cable connection from the ODD to the mainboard. it might be have troubles detecting it due to a loose connection.

I am running XP Pro SP3 and have installed a SCSI card and software for the scanner. When opening the utility I get error #5 cannot confirm scanner connection. Please confirm scanner's connection and SCSI...


Hello, just check you have a scsi terminator fitted to your scanner as without one you can get all sorts of bus errors. Also, keep the bus length as short as poss.
n.b. some of the later scsi devices are auto-terminating, so check the spec of your devices, and by the way,. don't plug and unplug your scsi bus whilst it is powered up as this can cause the hardware to blow (it's not like a usb plug and play bus)
Hope this helps!

What is wrong with my xbox it says error 65?


Error 65: DVD Drive Error.... DVD Timeout, Wrong firmware, dvd is without f/w chip, etc. This can also be caused by the tray not being fully closed on boot.

Flashing red:
1.the av cable cannot be detected
Make sure that the AV cable is correctly connected to the Xbox 360 console.
Disconnect the AV cable from the Xbox 360 console, and then reconnect the AV cable to the Xbox 360 console.
If the four flashing red lights continue to flash, try wiping the metal area of the AV pack with a dry cloth. The metal area is the end that plugs into the console. Wipe the metal area thoroughly, and then try the AV Pack again.
If the AV cable is correctly connected but the four red lights are still flashing, substitute a different AV cable if you have one available.
2.general hardware failure
Try restarting the console.
If restarting the console does not resolve the behavior, follow these steps:
Turn the console off.
Unplug all the power and AV cables from the console.
Unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
Firmly reconnect all the cables.
Turn on the console.
If these steps do not resolve the behavior, turn the console off, remove the hard drive, and then turn on the console. If the 3x Red LED error light is no longer displayed, turn the console off, re-attach the hard drive, and then turn on the console.
Also examine the lights on the power supply. When you turn on the console, the power supply light should illuminate green even if the three lights on the RoL flash red.

The specific type of hardware failure can be determined by a "hidden" error code
Turn the xbox 360 on, and wait till the 3 red lights are flashing.
Press and hold the sync up button (the small white one), while holding that button press the eject button.
The LEDs will now blink the first number in the code (as described below).
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the second number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the third number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will now blink the forth number of the code.
Release the eject button and press it again.
The LEDs will go back to the 3 red flashing lights.
You should be able to determine the difference between the 3 flashing lights and the error code lights by the rate in which they flash.

Here is how you interpret the LEDs to get the code number:
All four lights flashing - 0
One light flashing - 1
Two Lights flashing - 2
Three lights flashing - 3

0001 power supply problem
0002 Network Interface problem
0003 Power problem could be the PSU could be the GPU/CPU, somehow the console isn't getting clean power from the power supply.
0010 over heating
0011 over heating - If you are receiving this error after disassembling your console make sure to all 8 of the heatsync screws are tightened securely to the board/heatsink holes.
0012 over heating
0013 over heating
0021 DVD Drive Time out - Can be caused by problems with a firmware flash. This is also speculated to sometime be caused by a problem with the southbridge chipset on the motherboard.
0022 GPU Error / GPU Overheating

Opener was working - now not working.


I would pull the logic board and check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit especially around the small transformer.

My exterior Apple CD 600e will not show on the desktop of my Maci


As I recall, this is a SCSI device. Like many electrical connectors, SCSI connectors can develop a light corrosion which can keep the signals from being transmitted. The easiest way to clean such light corrosion is to shut down the Mac & power down *all* SCSI devices in the chain. Then gently unplug & replug all SCSI connectors. This will scrape off much of the corrosion & usually results in connectivity being restored. Be sure to unplug and replug the SCSI terminator attached to the last device in the SCSI chain. Restart by powering up the SCSI devices and finally restarting the Mac. Good luck!

Long periods of hard drive activity


Most likely, it could be the amount of ram you have in your computer. If your running low on ram and it is using the virtual memory your computer can be running all the time causing a slow down in whatever you do. Check to see how much ram you have :)

Dell laptop wont recognize ls2000 scanner


The LS-2000 is a "legacy" device to XP and the Nikon software. It needs to be connected to a true SCSI bus adapter, and it's actually pretty finicky about which ones will work in XP. Sorry, you won't be able to use this with your laptop.

My network switch LEDs all blinking even without LAN connected


Hi,

The LEDS blinking normally would indicate reset internally or when the unit has just been powered on. Continous LEDs lighting up or flashing with or without a connection is an indication of extensive hardware failure. This could have been brought about by a near lightning strike, a power surge or simply component failure. Unfortunately the repairs is not economically reasonable and therefore a replacement might be better off. Sorry.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Need help diagnosing dead UPS


Very likely, "would this also explain why none of the indicator leds are working?"...the dead batteries are your problem. you can try this test, since you had it opened: 1.) disconnect internal batteries, label the wires by terminal location. 2.) connect (2) 12 volt car batteries to same exact wires that you just disconnected, noting correct polarity. 3.) power up UPS. if everything ok, then buy 2 replacement batteries for UPS. if not ok, buy new UPS after through search inside UPS reveals no blown fuses or other faults including poor wire connections.
