Simple Tech collaspe

I went to turn on the hard-drive and it comes on then it gives me three clicks sound and the red light flashing. I bought it to a place that fixes computers and they couldn't get anything to even run a diagnostic. I really need to know what to do. I have many music projects on the hard-drive and i don't know if all is lost. What do I do?

My english is very bad but I try to explain you.
This is a very common problem with external disk (and it happen very often with simpletech).
2 possible solutions
1- buy another case sata and change the disk to the new case.
2 - Open simpletech's case, (its easy) In some cases if you open de case and take out the board inside, you would see humidity (not in the board of the disk) If you let this board several days out of the case, after that clean it with isopropyl alcohol and then wait one day more and assembly all again, in most of the case and the disk will we run again.

I hope this solve your problem,
I repaired a lot of simpletech in that way.

You may be able to fix it by replacing the logic board.

If you have an identical hard drive you may use the logic board from that one.

I have a SONY KF-WE50 rear projection tv, a few weeks ago it started to turn the pic and sound off while the green light was flashing around 30 times. After the light finished flashing both the picture and...


the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red light...it cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

My playstation turns on and the green light comes on but it turns to flashing red in about three seconds. It never comes up on the screen


It could be a failing hard drive...Try to remove the hard drive from the system and restart it without the hard drive if you can at least get to the main menu then it is your hard drive that is causing the problem.

Watching tv/w a dvd/vhs player(a seperate machine)the power goes out on the screen.went out with a white flash like usually when i turn it off.now on the bottom where the control buttons are,a red light...


It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that sound that gives it away, this is a typical switchmode Power Supply problem.

When turning on my panasonic cinemavision tv, it makes a click sound then the power button light flashes red three times, no picture comes on the screen, any ideas what should be done?


Most likely a power supply failure although the flashing of the LED a fixed number of times may point to something else such as a lamp failure. If you can find a forum for this series, you may find a Panasonic tech who can give you a better read on this.

Flashing device status light


Ok the lightning bolt is your power indicator: solid green-charging, Flashing green-fully charged, flashing red-low battery, flashing red three times the once green-bad battery. the "trash can" looking one is your hard drive activity indicator it will flash while your hard drive is reading and writing.

Tv doesnt turn/swith on


Without a Make or model it's hard to say, but I would have to say it's the IFT which is the High Voltage Transformer.

Sections 1, 3, and 4 are flashing red
- General Hardware Failure
/ \
\ /


Check the secondary Error Code per the instructions in the section below

THINGS TO TRY
  1. Try restarting the console.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
