    Kind of the same problem. The light is orange but it's clicking as if it's really 'trying'. My new PC won't recognise it at all and I'm gutted incase I lose all the stuff on it, like pics of my daughter and stuff.

This is known as the "click of death" among hard drives. Your external is merely a normal hard drive in an enclosure, and just as the hard drive in your computer can crash, so an the one in the enclosure, especially since it they tend to be transported a lot more. The sound you hear is the head seeking rapidly back and forth across the platters, and it isn't seeing anything.
I read the manual, and it doesn't say anything about a blue light. If the information is vitally important, there are companies that do data recovery that you can find, but it will run you upwards of $300. If it's not that important to you, buy a new hard drive and treat it nicely.

Blue light not staying on


You understand the drive does nothing by itself? It is your computer that uses the drive. If the computer is not connected properly then nothing can happen. Check the cable (substitute a different cable), try a different connector on the computer.
If all else fails you can take it to the store you bought it from (or a store that sells your product) and have a technician test your drive.

I have a blue jet 3 ultra n i just put 2 new batterys on it and all it will do is flash a red light in the top left corner of the battery light on the joy stick and the horn works but will not move what...


Check your battery wiring on the Jet the wires from the circuit breaker need to connect the positive of the front battery to the negative of the rear battery and the other wires connected to the positive of the rear battery and negative of the front battery putting the batteries in series to generate 24+ volts. If you have a voltmeter before you check the wiring set it to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the 2 outter holes of the charger port located under the front of the joystick. If your batteries are wired correctly you should be reading 27+ volts without the charger plugged in and your batteries fully charged. If you are only reading 12 volts then the wiring is wrong and needs to be fixed. Leaving the voltmeter in the charger port plug in your charger and you should be reading 27 -30+ volts at the charger port anything less than 24 volts indicates your charger is not charging Hope this helps

Unplug the power to the convergence board. If it turns on, you still have a problem in the convergence circuit.

It doesn't turn on!


If your Macintosh computer won't turn on, here's how to troubleshoot it. Please keep in mind that although your computer may display similar symptoms that prevent it from showing video, this article discusses what to do if the computer won't turn on, meaning that when you press the power button:
  • You don't hear a startup chime
  • You don't hear any fan or drive noise
  • The power button or power indicator doesn't light up at all
If your computer doesn't display any video, it may display one or more of these similar symptoms when you press the power button:
  • You may hear a startup chime
  • You may hear fan or drive noise
  • You may see the power button or power indicator light up
If any of these conditions occurs, see the Troubleshooting: My computer has no video article instead. If your computer won't turn on, try each of these steps:
  1. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working wall outlet, and that it's properly connected to the power adapter. (To check if the wall socket is working, plug in a lamp or other electrical device.)
  2. Make sure that the power adapter is properly connected to the power port on the back of the computer.
  3. Disconnect all accessories that are plugged into the computer, such as a printer, hub, or iPod.
  4. Reset the computer's PMU or PRAM.
    • For a portable (iBook or PowerBook), click here for instructions.
    • For a Mac mini, click here.
    • For an iMac, click here.
    • For a Power Mac, click here.
    • For a Mac Pro click here.
    • For a MacBook or MacBook Pro, click here.
    • For any other computer, click here for instructions on resetting the PRAM.
  5. Try plugging a different power cord into the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power cord. You can get a replacement cord for some models here.
  6. If the computer uses a power adapter, try connecting a different power adapter to the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power adapter. (Computers that use a power adapter include MacBook, MacBook Pro, iBooks, PowerBooks, Power Mac G4 Cube, and Mac mini.)
  7. If you tried all of the steps above and the computer still won't turn on, contact Apple technical support (1-800-APL-CARE in the U.S.) or take your computer to your local Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) for diagnosis.

Light blue is on, Seems it doesn't start at all


Check it on a second computer, if the problem follows the drive, then the drive is defective. You could take the case apart, and make sure the cabling is properly seated. Have seen an external drive where the interface cable (to the drive itself) was not properly seated, and resulted in a non-working unit.
