I agree with "rotorcrafts", however, as proffessional data recovery is incredibly costly, I'd try a couple other things first. If you haven't already, try getting the drive to read in different positions, ie., upside down, on either side or end, and GENTLY tap the case when you try it. Sometimes the center platter bearing will "freeze" and a different orientation will allw it to spin up. You can also refrigerate the drive. Enclose it in a freezer bag when you take it out of the fridge to keep it from drawing condensation. The contraction of a lower temperature could free the bearing. Be prepared though. IF it spins up it may only do so ONCE! Be ready to copy your data, immediately.

Your HD has probably gone bad beyond repair. you should contact some data recovery shop if there was crucial data in the HD

Toshiba HD ready TV ct 90158 makes high pitched sound


A high pitch sound can be a capacitor losing power it would sound a bit like a fire work. most have back up on the board but it put more pressure on them the more times you use the tv. would check them and replace. all of them can be 5 in a row in some models.

The sound on my TV has suddenly stopped working


check all wires are firmly in place, especially the scart lead, and just give them a little push to make sure, if that doesnt work, try unplugging your tv from the mains and wait 5 mins, plug it back in, wait another 5 mins, and turn on, if that doesnt work, contact the company's customer service line.

The engine seems to be making a sputtering noise


Amelia, we just bought one off a lease 5 weeks ago (purchased from a dealer). We are having the same symptoms, suddenly, as you describe.

Took it back to the dealership. After a bit of drama, they agreed to foot the repair bill ($1000). It was a broken distributer cap and wiring which should have been replaced before it was resold to us. What a pain.

I have a iomega mdhd500-ue for about past ten months.when switched on it useually whirls into action but now it is just making a repeated clicking sound and it is not connecting to my laptop


I have a MDHD500-N Iomega external HD that had the same issue - clicking at startup and flashing power LED. I noticed that the supplied power transformer for the unit is 12V 1A and the sticker on the HD enclosure says 12V 2A. I hooked up the HD enclosure directly to a power supply - at boot up, the HD draws 2.5A, more than double what the provided power transformer can output. HD enclosure runs beautifully on an external PS.
