The mirra will turn off after turning it on. The fan does not seem to be working so maybe it is shutting down because of heat. It shuts down in about 3 - 4 minutes sometimes immediately. How can I get my data off more quickly than just downloading from the computer applicaition because that takes sooo long. How can I get new parts?

Re: Turns off by itself
Hi you can connect another additional totally empty HDD to your computer and boot thru one of the disk manager cd - its GUI based , under maintenance option it is possible to copy entire contents of existing HDD into the empty HDD you connected .If can see too much of dust accumulation then you consider the fan to be malfunctioning component else there exists a short circuit in other components.

Don't know this exact server. But my guess it is either a heat issue or a power supply issue. Turn it on with the cover off. Check the CPU fan(s). If your CPU is getting too hot the system might be shutting down power to save it. If everything seems cool it might be the power supply I have seen it when the power supply fan goes out on the power supply and the caps inside start to sizzle. Voltage ramps up and fail. Hope this helps. Also, Something that has tripped me in the past. Make sure the power button is not stuck. I had a server that the power button stuck down and it would turn itself off. Took me 2 CPU fans and a power supply to figure that out. LOL
Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail. A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust. Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.
I had the same problem. The problem is the power button, it's not in short circuit, but I measure the resistance when it is open, and it seemed to be a problem of it cable's isolation. We replaced the power button's cables and now it's working.
You can replace the switch and the cables to assure the problem is fixed.

I found this for my unit.
FLEX ATX Switching Power Supply FSP150-50PL (FSP150-50PL-B Flex ATX) WxHxL: 3.2x1.6x6-inch (81.5x40.5x150mm) PS-FLX-FSP150-50PL I sent email to email@example.com for pricing and sure way to see if power supply is out.
It is definitely the PSU that's not working properly,because defective motherboard should still receive the 12V. you can use a desktop standard power supply to check if the server runs fine, even a cheap one is ok for a test run. they sell also cheap (about 15-20$) PSU tester, definitely worth when working with servers and WS. the Power supply fan might have a dedicated rail coming from the thermal sensor(thermistor.)this is why it can run even with bad 12V rail.
No, they won't be able to do anything for you but refund your money. I've been using the 250gig version for 2 years now and initially had problems with it. There's a diagnostic page you can run from your client that will narrow the problem down for you. It is likely to be a proxy issue or firewall port/filter that may need to be opened on your router.
I would first check that all the fans are turning when you first power it up. It may have fan speed sensors on them, and one or more fans aren't coming up to speed. I would check the CPU fan(s), as they are usually smaller, and tend to go bad before the other larger ones.
